'The USA is a Radicalized mess" Trump defends Bannon and others close to him

President Donald Trump discusses the potential impact of Hurricane Michael during a meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and FEMA Administrator Brock Long in the Oval Office of the White House on October 10, 2018 in Washington, DC.
  • Steve Bannon, Trump former White House chief strategist, defied a Congressional subpoena.
  • Congress voted to hold him in criminal contempt.
  • Trump on Sunday defended Bannon, who refused to hand over documents relating to the Capitol riot.

Former President Donald Trump defended Steve Bannon, his former White House chief strategist who Congress recently voted to hold in criminal contempt for defying a subpeona.

"This Country has perhaps never done to anyone what they have done to Steve Bannon and they are looking to do it to others, also," Trump wrote in a press release Sunday.

Bannon defied a subpoena from the January 6 select committee asking him to hand over documents and give testimony about what happened the day of the deadly riot.

Trump added that if the country was as tough on "China, Russia, and the world" it wouldn't be "failing at a level at which we have never seen before."

Trump has worked to try and block January 6 select committee from obtaining White House records to investigate his possible role in the riots.

The former president had also previously said he'd back anyone who challenged a number of Republican lawmakers in the next election, all of which either voted in favor of President Joe Biden's infrastructure bill or supported Bannon's indictment.

In his statement Sunday, Trump said "we never talk about making our Country great," adding that it's heading in a bad direction.

"The USA is a radicalized mess!" Trump said.
