Priebus and Bannon: If Conservatives and GOP Unite, They Cannot Be Stopped

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and strategist Steve Bannon took the stage at the CPAC on Thursday to dismiss any doubts of their relationship in President Donald Trump's administration.  

"President Trump brought together the party and the conservative movement,” Priebus said.  "And I’ve got to tell you, if the party and the conservative movement are together — similar to Steve and I — it can’t be stopped. And President Trump was the one guy, he was the one person — and I can say it after overseeing 16 people kill each other — it was Donald Trump that was able to bring this party and this movement together."

Bannon blasted the mainstream media, saying that they were dead wrong about the election, and they're dead wrong now.

"Just like they were dead wrong on the chaos of the campaign, and just like they were dead wrong on the chaos of the transition, they are absolutely dead wrong about what’s going on today, because we have a team that’s just grinding it through on what President Donald Trump promised the American people. The mainstream media had better understand something: all of those promises are going to be implemented,” Bannon said.

The pair joked throughout their time on stage and reaffirmed to the crowd that unity would ultimately lead to party success.
