Exclusive: White House delivered EU-skeptic message before Pence visit - sources
In the week before U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited Brussels and pledged America's "steadfast and enduring" commitment to the European Union, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon met with a German diplomat and delivered a different message, according to people familiar with the talks.
Bannon, these people said, signalled to Germany's ambassador to Washington that he viewed the EU as a flawed construct and favoured conducting relations with Europe on a bilateral basis.
A White House official who checked with Bannon in response to a Reuters query confirmed the meeting had taken place but said the account provided to Reuters was inaccurate. "They only spoke for about three minutes and it was just a quick hello," the official said.
The sources described a longer meeting in which Bannon took the time to spell out his world view. They said his message was similar to the one he delivered to a Vatican conference back in 2014 when he was running the right-wing website Breitbart News.In those remarks, delivered via Skype, Bannon spoke favourably about European populist movements and described a yearning for nationalism by people who "don't believe in this kind of pan-European Union."

it could very well be delivering two (or more) messages to our allies.
Only the last time it was Flynn who didn't tell Mikey the whole truth! I guess this time Bannon didn't tell Mikey shit, and Mikey went to Europe and told the EU, a line of shit!
Pence is turning out to be dumber then a stump!!!
Nobody trusts the United States. We have no moral authority. Our once great nation is no longer the Beacon on the Hill.
... to keep the peace, well ... that doesn't speak too well of the US, or their trust in our nation, or our "leaders". We've lost all credibility and respect.
Hashtag fuck Trump.
From now on, anyone talking to anyone who is connected to tRUMP, or tRUMP himself, must video or audio tape the conversations. It's not enough with these guys to have it down in writing! Look at Cohen with the New York Times and Washington Post interviews, and other such examples!! We're dealing with a bunch of liars, and they needed to be handled accordingly!!
He, along with his boss, love to create chaos and uncertainly and all the lies coming from these 2 jerks certainly do that.
