Bannon to speak at University of Chicago

Greg Nash

Stephen Bannon will address faculty and students at the University of Chicago after a business professor extended an invitation to President Trump’s former chief strategist. 

{mosads}”Whether you agree with him or not (and I personally do not), Mr. Bannon has come to interpret and represent this backlash in America. For this reason, I invited Mr. Bannon to a debate on these issues with our faculty,” professor Luigi Zingales said in a Facebook post.

A date for the talk has not yet been set, according to the school’s newspaper The Chicago Maroon.

The announcement sparked backlash amid the student body. 

 

 

 

The news comes as Bannon prepares to meet with special counsel Robert Mueller this week. 

Bannon made headlines earlier this month after he was quoted in Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” as saying Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in 2016 was “treasonous.”
