Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s controversial former chief strategist, will speak at the University of California at Berkeley as part of Milo Yiannopoulos’s “Free Speech Week” this month, according to an announcement on Mr. Yiannopoulos’s website.

The Chronicle previously reported that Mr. Bannon, who is also executive chairman of Breitbart News, had been invited to speak on the campus, though the university later said he had not been confirmed as a speaker. ”Uncle Steve was the force behind Trump’s election victory and much of his initial policy making,” says a statement attributed to “MILO” on the site. “Nothing could be better for the leftists who oppose Trump so vehemently than a lesson in the logic behind Trump’s actions, direct from the architect of his policies.”

Mr. Yiannopoulos had been scheduled to speak at the university, often heralded as the birthplace of the free-speech movement in higher education, in February. That event was canceled after protesters wearing all black smashed windows and started fires.
