Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist and the controversial right-wing editor of Breitbart, and the leaders of the group called We Build the Wall came to downtown Cincinnati last week to raise money and promote the effort to build a Mexican border wall on private land with private money.
“I’m in Cincinnati, because the border crisis is in Iowa,” Bannon told the crowd of more than 200 people who came to the Hilton Netherland Plaza in Downtown Cincinnati, reports Cincinnati.com. “It’s in Ohio. This border crisis is a national crisis.”
Many in the audience blamed illegal immigrants for crime and economic hardships, and one Trump supporter stood up to declare that she’d like to see the president become a dictator in order to clean the “trash” in Washington.
“I’m so upset. We have got so much trash that is supposedly representing us in Washington,” the Trump supporter claimed.
“Seriously if you want to take it back, it’s citizen involvement. You can take the trash out,” Bannon tells the woman.
“Oh lord,” she responds.
“Never in my life did I think I would like to see a dictator, but if there’s gonna be one, I want it to be Trump!” she declared as the audience, including Steve Bannon, could be seen erupting in applause, according to a clip posted online from Showtime’s The Circus.
At what point are we supposed to worry?
Shocking moment from @SHO_TheCircus 😳😬
