Bannon’s appointment to the NSC appears to be part of a broader trend towards his consolidation of power within the White House.  According to Politico, he’s played a key role in selecting cabinet appointees, drafting executive orders on immigration, and writing Trump’s inaugural speech.  It’s a remarkable ascent for a far-right media figure who’s openly espoused white supremacy, and as recently as last summer told Vanity Fair that Trump was a “blunt instrument for us” at Breitbart News.  The hashtag #PresidentBannon has popped up to suggest that Bannon is the power behind the throne.
