Reince Priebus and Stephen Bannon, the White House's much-scrutinized top two aides, lavished each other with praise on Thursday in a friendly panel discussion at the Conservative Political Action Conference where Bannon laid out President Donald Trump's "new political order."
The two found common ground bashing the press, which they complained had not given Trump sufficient credit for his achievements and failed to understand the president's goals.
"They're corporatist globalist media that are adamantly opposed to an economic nationalist agenda like President Trump has," Bannon said.
Bannon described Trump's agenda as a continuation of his campaign platform and would emphasize the "deconstruction of the administrative state."

He said recent executive orders on travel, border security and deportations signaled that "the rule of law is going to exist when you talk about our sovereignty and you talk about immigration."
"Every day in the Oval Office he tells Reince and I: 'I committed this to the American people, I promised this when I ran, and I'm going to deliver on this,'" Bannon said.
While he acknowledged gaps between different factions of conservatism, Bannon described a united front behind a "new political order."
"I think the center core of what we believe, that we're a nation with an economy — not an economy just in some global marketplace with open border — that we're a nation with a culture and a reason for being, and I think that's what unites us and I think that's what's going to unite this movement," he said.
