Breitbart News’s executive chairman and former White House chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, said with “absolute metaphysical certitude” in an impromptu Thanksgiving proclamation to SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily radio show that “we will get our country back.”

Speaking with Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow and Breitbart London Editor Raheem Kassam, Bannon said that on Thanksgiving, Americans and, specifically, populist-nationalist conservatives should be thankful that “we’re winning.”

“Here’s what I’m thankful for: it’s that we’re winning,” Bannon said. “I mean we’re winning. I know it looks – every day it looks – like we’re kind of coming off track. The hand of divine providence was on November 8.”

“You know, we’ve got so much to be thankful for. I looked at the last years. You know, it’s not perfect.” Bannon said.

“Look, we’re only 80 percent of the way through the first year of the Trump administration. And I realize for the left it feels like, you know, 80 years. But that’s why we’re putting it to them. You just got to have the president’s back.”

“And let me tell you, this I know is a fact – an absolute metaphysical certitude, just like I told Trump back in August of 2016, that he would win the presidency, is that we will win,” Bannon said. “We will turn this thing around, we will get our country back, we will stop the decline of America that the elites are comfortable making money off of in this downward trend, we will turn this thing around, as a people, as a group of populist-nationalist conservatives, and we will make this country great again. And making this country good again will make the world a safer, more prosperous, and happier place.”

Bannon noted that though there will be bumps in the road for the Trump administration and the president’s base of supporters, it is Trump who, on his own, leads himself back to his populist-economic nationalist agenda.

“And by the way, at Breitbart, we’re very proud of the fact that we don’t agree with the president every day of the week,” Bannon said. “We think that we’re the touchstone for the right and that, you know, we will not flinch, and we will never give up, and we will always fight, and sometimes, the president gets bad information or gets wooed by certain progressive left Democrats in the West Wing.”

“But then he always comes back,” Bannon said of Trump. “His natural adjustment is always to come back and do the right thing. I think out there in the Breitbart radio audience … just keep the faith. I mean, we’ve had a great run, and we’re going to have a greater run. And the way we’re going to have a great run is get around the table today, say, ‘Thanks’ and say, ‘Hey, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for, more than any people in the history of the world, but we have a big duty and a big obligation and that is to power through the next year.'”
