Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon predicted Wednesday that Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonWhite House accuses Biden of pushing ‘conspiracy theories’ with Trump election claim Biden courts younger voters — who have been a weakness Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton qualifies to run for county commissioner in Florida MORE was looking for a way to enter the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primary.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Bannon said that Clinton was “waiting” for the call from members of her party before launching a third bid for the presidency. His remarks come despite Clinton’s assurance earlier this month that she was not seeking another run for the White House in 2020.
“Secretary Clinton has said that she’s not running, but you know, she’s in the bullpen waiting for the call,” Bannon said.
“I believe, if you go through the gauntlet this summer, you start the Democratic primary, by the fall of next year if there’s not a candidate that’s kind of breaking out of the pack and looks like they can take on Trump … because the No. 1 thing for the Democrats is not policy right now … the No. 1 thing for the Democrats is beating Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE,” he continued.
“And they’re going to fall in line with whoever they think can beat Donald Trump,” Bannon added, before predicting that no Democrat would be successful in unseating the president in next year’s elections.
“I don’t see anyone in this field right now taking on Donald Trump,” he said.

Clinton told a local news station earlier this month that she was not planning to run for president in 2020 while adding that she was not “going anywhere,” and would remain a vocal force on the left.
“I want to be sure that people understand I’m going to keep speaking out,” Clinton told News 12 Westchester. “I’m not going anywhere. What’s at stake in our country, the kinds of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me.”
“We’ve gotten not just polarized,” she added. “We’ve gotten into, really, opposing camps unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my adult life.”
