MISSOULA – President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist appears to be scheduled to speak on the University of Montana campus this December.

Steve Bannon, also known for his role as a founding member of Breitbart News, a far-right news, opinion and commentary website, will be the keynote speaker at the 15th International Conference on Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology (ACE), according to the group’s website .

We reached out to Paula Short, Director of Communications for the Office of the President for more information about the event. Short said ACE 2018 is not a University of Montana-sponsored event, but the group is using venues on campus.

The date for the event is set for Dec. 10 – 14.
