Trump's former chief strategist visited the Foreign Press Association as part of a tour around Europe in which he is meeting with various right-wing leaders to discuss the populist wave that is sweeping across Western nations. Bannon strongly admonished the current political narrative upheld by the media and called on the institution to step up and self-regulate. He also criticised the role of the Pope in his opposition to Trump and other populist leaders across the world. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was arrested on charges of defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors through his "We Build the Wall" fundraising campaign. Bannon and three others were indicted in a federal investigation in the Southern District of New York. Prosecutors allege the four defrauded donors by raising "more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern border of the United States," but some of that money was used for personal gain.
