Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon spoke at the 2017 Macomb County Republican Unity Dinner on Nov. 8.

Protesters were stationed outside of the location to speak out against Bannon and police stepped up security measures.

Addressing more than 700 Macomb County Republicans, Bannon focused on why President Donald Trump won the election and the important role Michigan played.

Bannon, now CEO of Breitbart News, says upcoming elections are the next challenge for his party. 

His supporters agreed with his message of creating jobs, strengthening borders and fighting terror.
