By John SidesThis post is part of a series exploring the potential of a president with an “iron fist” approach to governing.
In his new book, The Iron Fist, Steve Bannon, a former White House chief strategist, describes how his political and economic theories could help Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton and help Trump fulfill his campaign promises of creating “a massive American infrastructure.”
Bipartisanship, for Bannon, is the best antidote to “socialism in one country” and a “fear of losing your way in life.”
“I think we have to get our politics back,” Bannon told The Daily Beast.
“Politics is not an issue in the end.”
Bannon believes the Republican Party’s failure to reach consensus on a range of issues is an indication that Trump has “lost his way.”
In his view, this is because Trump and his allies have made the GOP’s foreign policy incoherent and the party’s economic proposals incoherent.
Bannon has also argued that the party needs to turn to the alt-right and other fringe movements that he argues will give Trump a chance to reverse some of his recent gains.
“If we’re going to make America great again, we have got to make sure we have a Trump in the White House,” Bannon said.
“I think Trump is the key to that.
I don’t think he is the only person who can do it.
But if we’re talking about Donald Trump, the key is Steve Bannon.”
Trump is not the only Republican candidate to have a long history of being anti-establishment and anti-Trump.
He has been criticized by the GOP establishment and many Republicans for not being conservative enough on foreign policy and national security.

She has also been accused by some Democrats of having a cozy relationship with Trump.
In her new book Bannon paints a portrait of a Trump presidency that would be a return to the “hard core conservatism” of the 1980s, and one that would rely on his populist appeal.
Bryan Fischer, a prominent commentator and conservative commentator, wrote in a blog post that Trump’s populism could be used to “get rid of the moderate elements in the GOP” and that Bannon’s ideas would help Trump get through the election.
“He’s the real deal,” Fischer wrote.
“He’s not going to be in a position to say he’s an anti-globalist or a populist but he’s going to say the things that he thinks are going to get us there.”
Trump’s victory was a historic one for the GOP.
It was a surprise because Trump was widely perceived to be a moderate who had little in common with the GOP Establishment.
His campaign had been a farce, and he had been dogged by allegations of sexism and racism.
But Bannon’s election was also a triumph for the anti-intellectual populism that Bannon has been championing.
Bubba Schlafly, a longtime conservative activist who had once led a failed bid for the White Senate, told The Atlantic that Bannon will help Trump achieve his agenda.
Schlafley, a lifelong Republican, noted that Bannon had been an “amazing, brilliant strategist” who helped turn the Tea Party into the most powerful force in American politics.
Schlfly called Bannon “a great strategist.”
