Former WH chief strategist Steve Bannon believes that the Democrat nominee to run against Trump in 2020 may not even be in the race yet.
In fact, he believes it may end up being Hillary again!
According to Bannon,
“She is running. She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in.”
Speaking to Trish Regan on Fox Business Bannon explained his reasoning,
“They think they have a weak field,” Bannon said,
“It’s like in chess, they’re prepared to sacrifice a rook to take down a king.
They will throw Biden away to get to Trump and hope Elizabeth Warren or I even think Hillary Clinton or Bloomberg or some centrist comes in here.”

The Washington Examiner has more on Bannon's convicting that Hillary is running again:
Steve Bannon said Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2020.
Bannon, who was the chief executive of President Trump's campaign in the final stretch of the 2016 election, said the Democrats fear they have poor candidates this cycle and, with the House impeachment inquiry underway, are attempting to "nullify the election."
"They think they have a weak field and they're — it's like in chess — they're prepared to sacrifice a rook to take down a king. They will throw [Joe] Biden away to get to Trump and hope Elizabeth [Warren] or I even think Hillary Clinton or [Michael] Bloomberg or some centrist comes in here," Bannon said Monday on Fox Business.
Bannon, who also served as White House chief strategist, said Clinton is "doing a whole thing" this week, going on a tour with her daughter Chelsea to promote their new book Gutsy Women and calling Trump an "illegitimate president."
The Hill also noted:
Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon predicted 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will run for president next year during in an interview on Fox Business Monday night.
"She is running," Bannon said of Clinton, the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. "She's just trying to decide how to fit her way in."
Clinton, 71, has dismissed any speculation of a third run for president. She has given interviews across all the major networks in recent days regarding a new book she co-authored with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.
Bannon's prediction of a "Hillary Clinton 2020" campaign comes amid a wave of speculation that she is going to announce her run since she is refusing to endorse any other Democrat candidate.
As Summit News explained:
Hillary Clinton announced last night that she will not endorse any of the Democratic candidates, fueling speculation that she may yet enter the race.
During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hillary was asked if she had endorsed anyone.
“No,” she responded, “no I’m not going to.”
Clinton went on to dodge the question of whether she would endorse a candidate if they supported her position of getting rid of the Electoral College.
Despite her catastrophic 2016 campaign, some believe that Hillary is so full of herself that she may actually decide to run for a third time.
Here's that video of Hillary Clinton's recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she refused to endorse a Democrat presidential candidate that is currently in the race:
