The current situation in the United States of America is being debated today in Prague by Steve Bannon, a former strategic adviser to US President Donald Trump, with another former special adviser to a different White House, Lanny Davis, who is a member of the Democratic Party. Bannon is considered a controversial figure - prior to his White House work he led the extremist, xenophobic news website Breitbart.com, which was known at that time for its significantly anti-immigrant, nationalist rhetoric.

The main subjects of the debate between Bannon and Davis, who is a follower of Trump's presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, will be economic nationalism, globalization, immigration and international trade. Both politicians were invited to Prague by the industrial holding company Czechoslovak Group in collaboration with the CEVRO college.

Bannon was one of Trump's closest collaborators during his presidential campaign and his first months in office. After Trump's electoral victory, Bannon served as a strategic adviser in the White House.

After many controversies, Bannon was removed last August at a time when Trump faced strong criticism over the White House reaction to the violence in Virginia that was provoked by white racists. In March Bannon was a guest speaker at a convention of the French ultra-right Front National party.
