Is Bannon playing the role of bad cop in Trump 's administration? by Tony Garcia
Answer by Tony Garcia:
According to a Pia Guerra essay in the New Republic, presumed-President Steve Bannon is starting to get on actual-President Donald Trump’s nerves.
“In the first two weeks of Trump’s presidency, many have speculated that Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart chief, is the one calling the shots in the White House. The numerous executive orders signed by Trump fit neatly into Bannon’s white nationalist agenda; their poor execution signal that a government novice is pulling the strings.”
Steve Bannon’s role seems to be less one of a cop, good or bad, and more one of Geppetto pulling Pinocchi’s strings, notwithstanding Jared Kushner’s role as senior White House adviser to his father-in-law.
