Hillary Clinton is "not very bright" and does not understand what issues are important to the American people, former White House strategist Steve Bannon told CBS's "60 Minutes" in an unaired portion of a recent interview on the show.

In the interview, Bannon slammed Clinton for a speech she gave on the presidential campaign trail last year attempting to connect the "alt-right" and white supremacists to the Trump campaign, saying her comments "landed flat" and were "nonsense."

"Hillary Clinton's not very bright," Bannon said. "Everybody says she's so smart, so much smarter than Donald Trump. She doesn't really have a grasp . . . on what's important and what's not, and that's what's essential in a leader. Donald Trump has a grasp on what's important and what's marginalia."

Bannon insisted that "the smart guys in the Democratic Party" realize the importance of this economic nationalist movement, because the "only question before us is if it's going to be a left-wing populism or a right-wing populism, and that's the question that will be answered in 2020."

He stressed that "economic nationalism is what this country was built on, the American system. We go back to that, we look after our own, we look after our citizens, we look after our manufacturing base, and guess what, this country is going to be greater, more united, more powerful than it's ever been."

He added that claims that this is racist are ridiculous, because the movement includes "every nationality, every race, every religion, every sexual preference, as long as you're a citizen of our country."
