President Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, told members of a French far-right party that they should wear charges of racism and xenophobia as a “badge of honor.” Bannon was speaking in Lille at a convention of the National Front—which is known for its anti-Semitic rhetoric and anti-immigrant policies.

Stephen Bannon: “Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativist. Wear it as a badge of honor, because every day we get stronger and they get weaker.”
