Bannon facing bans on Euro-funding

A Guardian investigation has found that many of the countries in which former Trump adviser Steve Bannon wants to help right wing parties campaign for the European Parliamentary Elections have bans on foreign assistance.

According to the Guardian, only the Netherlands and Italy currently allow foreign donations either of money or ‘in-kind’ services and have a party willing to co-operate with Bannon. However, in Italy, legislation is being considered which would ban foreign donations.

Bannon has indicated that he would be careful not to break the law and so it seems his mass movement of the right may be a damp squib.
