Conservative radio host Michael Savage is slamming Steve Bannon, saying the White House chief strategist is not the architect of President Donald Trump's real message to America.

Savage's remarks came in a posting on his website.

"A new book is out detailing Bannon's effect on the campaign and the White House. Bannon is portrayed as the voice that preached nationalism, made Trump address immigration as the forefront of his candidacy, and connected him to the working class," Savage said

"Well, that's the big lie. You, my audience know the truth. Let's look at the timeline. Donald Trump first appeared on the Savage Nation for many years. In a 2011 interview on my show, he addressed much of what he ran on; the economic unfairness of China, getting control of North Korea, the disaster that was happening in Iraq and the Middle East, how healthcare was destroying business, and yes, how he knew Russia was a geopolitical foe long before [Mitt] Romney said it.

He was crafting his message on this program as far back as six years ago."

Savage said Bannon was in Hollywood making documentaries at the time. He noted a year later, Bannon started working for Breitbart News.

"Why do I bring this up?" Savage said. "Because we are watching the Trump administration implode right now and there's a reason for it.

"He's following the advice of Bannon and abandoning what he said he would do on the 'Savage Nation' radio show. I know that Donald Trump was influenced by the books I worked so hard on, particularly 'Government Zero' and 'Scorched Earth.'

"But now, Steve Bannon has his ear, and he's steering him in the wrong direction. Bannon's encouraging his Twitter usage, he's muddling the message, holding Trump back from true inspiring leadership (think of Churchill's speeches)."

Savage said Trump needs to get back to his earlier messages.

"Build the wall, stop all immigration for a few years, fight ISIS to the very end, stop meddling in the Middle East and get back to building America with jobs and infrastructure, attack the drug epidemic by cracking out on drug manufacturers and drug peddlers," he said.

"But we're stuck on Russia, and the GOP is lost on healthcare and taxes. This is not the leadership you voted for and it's a result of listening to bad advice and ignoring what got you there."

And Savage reaffirmed his support for the president.

"While I worked very hard to back Trump because I knew he was the only candidate who could beat Hillary [Clinton], I was very aware of his metropolitan liberal political orientation," he said.

"But I believed he actually saw what the average Eddie and Edith wanted and realized their wants were in many ways the same as his. Secure borders, a healthy economy being foremost. Just because the ship of state is being steered left does not mean I no longer believe in my political orientation."
