White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon told attendees at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday that President Donald Trump is focused on fulfilling campaign promises like a man possessed.

Attendees at the most famous annual gathering of American conservatives were given political red meat in the nation’s capital. Mr. Bannon, flanked by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, told a crowd that “corporatist, globalist media” figures would be opposed every day by Mr. Trump as he attempts to deliver on his campaign vows.

“He’s laid out an agenda with those speeches, with the promises he made, and our job everyday is just to execute on that,” Mr. Bannon said. “And he’s maniacally focused on that. … If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken.”

Mr. Bannon said that Mr. Trump is regularly approached by individuals who try and get him to “waver,” only for them to be rebuffed.

“Every day in the Oval Office he tells Reince and [me], ‘I committed this to the American people. I promised this when I ran, and I’m going to deliver on this.’”
