Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was one of the most influential and important figures who helped President Donald Trump win the 2016 election.
Bannon’s “outside of the box” thinking and ability to foresee things happening before they do helped Trump take on Hillary Clinton and all of her dirty tricks.
But Bannon is warning that the “old battle horse” is likely about to jump in the 2020 race.
During an interview Friday night on Fox Business News with host Trish Regan, Bannon said he thinks Hillary Clinton will run for president a third time in this upcoming election.
The discussion began with covering Trump’s new trade agreement with China and then moved into the ongoing coup against the president and what that means for the 2020 election.
Bannon then doubled-down on his prediction that Clinton will jump into the 2020 race.
This is the second time in a week that Bannon has gone on Fox News and predicted a third-run for Hillary.
Last week, he told Regan on her Fox program that he believes Hillary is positioning herself for another run at the White House in 2020.
Bannon argued that Democrats are disillusioned with their current crop of candidates and are willing to drop the frontrunners and bring in Hillary or a centrist to take down the president.
“They think they have a weak field and they’re – it’s like in chess – they’re prepared to sacrifice a rook to take down a king,” he explained. “They will throw Biden away to get to Trump and hope Elizabeth or I even think Hillary Clinton or Bloomberg or some centrist comes in here.”
Bannon went on to argue that Hillary is almost definitely running, simply trying to find a way to wedge herself back into contention.
“She is running,” he states. “She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in.”
Bannon notes that Hillary has been very active since the impeachment inquiry was announced, emboldened by her fellow Democrats who are doing everything they can to hit the reset button on the 2016 election.

Rumors have continued to swirl that Clinton is preparing to run into the 2020 fray.
In fact, Trump and Clinton recently exchanged tweets adding more fuel to the fire that there could be a rematch.
Earlier this week, Trump posted a tweet for Clinton, baiting her into running in 2020 and trying to steal the potential nomination from Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president wrote.
But there was a special condition he wanted to see applied should Hillary opt in for a third humiliating defeat as a presidential candidate.
“The crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors, including how [and] why she deleted 33,000 emails AFTER getting ‘C’ subpoena!” Trump joked.
Clinton responded with “Don’t tempt me,” which certainly appears to suggest she is considering another run.
Don’t tempt me. Do your job.

If she runs for a third time, we all know how it will end.
Spoiler: she loses.
