President Donald Trump will win reelection with 400 electoral votes in 2020, his former chief strategist Steve Bannon declared Saturday in a reversal of reports claiming that he'd said the president had just a 30 percent chance of finishing out his first term.

"The populist, nationalist, conservative revolt that's going on, that drove Donald Trump to victory, that drove Judge [Roy] Moore to victory, that will drive 15 candidates to victory in 2018," Bannon, now the executive chairman of Breitbart News told an audience at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, reports The Hill.

Vanity Fair, however, quoting an anonymous source, said that Bannon had commented several months ago that the president has just a 30 percent chance of finishing his term. Further, the source claimed that Trump does not know the function of the 25th Amendment, which gives a president's Cabinet the right to vote for him to be removed from office, if a majority of its officials agree.

"I hate to break it to Graydon Carter and the good folks at Vanity Fair, but yes, President Trump is not only going to finish this term, he's going to win with 400 electoral votes in 2020," Bannon declared Saturday.

Bannon also said Saturday that he will eventually get back to fighting Democrats, but as for now, "it's a season of war against the GOP establishment."

On Monday, Bannon told Fox News' Sean Hannity that there is a "coalition coming together that is going to challenge every Republican incumbent except for Ted Cruz."

Bannon, going against Trump and congressional Republicans, rallied for former Judge Roy Moore in Alabama's Senate GOP runoff race over Sen. Luther Strange, who Trump had supported.

In 2016, Trump won 304 electoral votes, and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton netted 227.
