Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said Democratic Party members “want death and destruction” in the United States, speaking about the Democratic National Convention that will begin its agenda today, Aug. 17.

“They want the death of the American economy and the destruction of the American way of life, and I think if that is highlighted at the end of the week, it’ll smoke Joe Biden out of his basement,” Bannon told “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo, according to Fox News on Aug. 16.

For Bannon, it is an opportunity for Americans to know what to expect from the Democratic program during the four-day convention.

Bannon assumes that they will be “talking about more globalization, more economic devastation, along with their support for cultural Marxism and the anarchy of antifa, and certain elements of the Black Lives Matter movement.”

The release of this programming, according to Bannon, will serve to further boost the Republican campaign, which is working to help President Donald Trump win re-election on Nov. 3, Election Day.

“President Trump won in 2016 because he stood up for America, he stood up for the working class and the middle class against a financial and political elite that was driving the controlled decline of the United States, and you’re going to see that in the next four days,” said Bannon, who advised Trump’s campaign during his 2016 bid.

The convention will also see the official launch of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential bid, and speeches by several prominent party members, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, among others.

The convention, which will be held at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, will be joined by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), according to USA Today.

The nomination of Joe Biden for president and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) for vice president has generated controversy because of their leftist leanings.

The Biden-Harris formula “marks a sad and dangerous new chapter for his party,” because it would mean that the Democratic Party has been taken over by radical extremists, and would follow policies that are harmful to Americans, according to an article by Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel on Aug. 12.
