Steve Bannon’s “War Room Pandemic” account was permanently suspended by Twitter, after the ex-Trump strategist said in a video Thursday that the president should execute Dr. Anthony Fauci and FBI director Christopher Wray.
According to Twitter, the company suspended Bannon’s @WarRoomPandemic account for violating its policy banning the “glorification of violence.” Facebook and YouTube also removed the video in question.
In Bannon’s “War Room” show Thursday, the far-right political commentator mused about what Trump should do in a theoretical second term. Initially, Bannon said Trump should fire the FBI’s Wray and Fauci, the U.S.’s leading infectious-diseases expert who has been at odds with Trump over the White House’s lack of an effective strategy to handle the COVID pandemic.
Then, Bannon said, “I actually want to go a step farther”: “I’d actually like to go back to the old times of Tudor England,” he said. “I’d put the heads on pikes, right — I’d put them at the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal bureaucrats. You either get with the program or you are gone.”
Bannon, a former producer and documentary filmmaker, was executive chairman at Breitbart News Network before Trump hired him as campaign CEO in August 2016. A year later, Bannon was fired as White House chief strategist under then chief of staff John Kelly.
