The former White House strategist and far-right agitator hails the British election as a 'victory for populism' with lessons for the US

Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist associated with global far-right nationalist movements, has urged Republicans to "find our AOCs" – a reference to the Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – to claim the mantle of the party of the working class.

In an interview with the Guardian at his Capitol Hill townhouse, Bannon, who helped shape the party in Donald Trump's image, argued that Republicans have to fight back against the "perfect casting" of Democrats elected to Congress last year by boosting equivalents from their own ranks.
