Trump's former strategist and investor Steve Bannon has announced that the United States should not regard Russia as an enemy.
"The Russians are part of the Judeo-Christian culture," he said. "We don’t need to pick a fight with them. The Cold War has got to come to an end. We can’t be fighting everyone all the time," Bannon told Haaretz.
Earlier, Bannon also revealed his plans to create a foundation aimed at supporting right-wing groups across Europe.
The foundation, which is to be called "The Movement," will be tasked with polling, research consultations on messaging and data targeting for right-wing parties in Europe and is expected to help them win as many as a third of the seats in the European Parliament after the next elections in May 2019.
Before being forced out of the White House in August 2017, Bannon was a key figure in Trump's successful campaign bid and was for a time considered to be Trump's chief political strategist.
