The internet (including a top foreign policy official) isn’t happy that Steve Bannon was promoted to a role on the National Security Council on Saturday.
The hashtag #StopPresidentBannon began trending on Twitter and blew up over the weekend as thousands rallied to protest President Donald Trump’s chief strategist.
Bannon’s new position, one that exists to advise the president on national security and foreign affairs, downgraded the roles of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence. They will only attend the council when considering issues in “their direct areas of responsibilities.”
This notion was only reinforced on Friday after Trump’s controversial executive order to refuse refugees and visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries entry to the U.S.
Here’s what Twitter had to say:
