US President Donald Trump won while ignoring from beginning to end all the predictions that announced him losing for sure. He thus chose to continue on a similar modus operandi at the White House. The appointment of Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, former executive of the Breitbart News site at the National Security Council (NSC), displeased US mainstream media (MSM). If Bannon’s appointment is in line with the President’s prerogatives, this would put politics at the heart of a stricto sensu sovereign affairs team, regretted the New York Times (NYT). In the end, Bannon will have the honor of sitting alongside the Secretaries of State, of Defense and even the CIA Director whom Trump has just reinstated in the NSC.
