Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is moving to Europe to set up a populist foundation he will call “The Movement.”
The foundation will aim to help elect right-leaning nationalist candidates during the 2019 election season. It will conduct polling, advise politicians on messaging, and provide analysis.
The Movement is intended to provide a right-leaning alternative to rival the Open Society Foundation, a liberal organization founded and funded by billionaire investor George Soros, Bannon told the Daily Beast. It will be headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
Bannon said that he sees some support in Europe following the Brexit vote for Great Britain to leave the European Union.
“We’re not looking to include any ethno-nationalist parties in this although guys like the Sweden Democrats or the True Finns are perfect casting,” he said.
