Donald Trump Had No Clue He Gave Bannon So Much Power At The NSC
Donald Trump didn’t know he was giving Steve Bannon so much power by adding him to the National Security Council in an executive order he issued during his first days in office.
According to the New York Times, Trump complained that no one told him what the executive order entailed and that it gave significant power to Bannon. It was only after everything was signed that he found out! In fact, this was more frustrating for Trump than the fallout from his other executive order on immigration.
In the NSC executive order, Donald Trump added a non-military political advisor on a board of military experts advising on the security of the country. This was unprecedented the history of the United States.
