On Saturday, Julia Jones, who once worked with Donald Trump’s chief advisor Steve Bannon, told the New York Times that Bannon had once expressed to her his belief that limiting the voting rights of African-American is “not such a bad thing.”
The conversation stemmed from Bannon’s suggestion that voting rights be limited to property owners, Jones said.
“I said, ‘That would exclude a lot of African-Americans,'”Jones recalled. “He said, ‘Maybe that’s not such a bad thing.'”
However, Jones claimed that she did not think Bannon was a racist but that he is “using the alt-right — using them for power.” Still, she did note that he “occasionally” spoke about genetic superiority for some people.
Jones co-wrote “In the Face of Evil” with Bannon. The project was a positive documentary about the presidency of Ronald Reagan with a focus on his fight against communism.
