Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has given a widely reported interview to The U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times commenting on Tommy Robinson and his imprisonment, calling Robinson: “not just a guy but a movement”

He told The Sunday Times: “Tommy is not just a guy but a movement in and of himself now.”

“He represents the working class and channels a lot of the frustration of everyday, blue collar Britons… He is a force of nature.”

Mr. Bannon also said authorities were wrong to gaol Robinson, and that he deserves an apology, calling him a “solid guy” and the “backbone of this country” while in the U.K. last month.

Mr. Robinson was gaoled in circumstances that led to world-wide controversy, on May 25, 2018, but this has now been overturned, and he has been released from prison.
