President Donald Trump doesn’t lie and hasn’t lied to the American people, said former White House Chief Strategist and Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon Sunday on This Week.
Guest host Jon Karl played clips of the President promising never to lie before saying to Bannon point blank that this was a campaign promise the President “obviously broke. He has not always told the truth.”
“I don’t know that,” replied Bannon. “From what I’ve seen, he has.” Karl asked him again, “you think the President has never lied?” “Not to my knowledge, no,” Bannon said again. Then he joked “except when he called me ‘Sloppy Steve.’”
