#StopPresidentBannon trends as Trump strategist gets promotion
In his role on the NSC Bannon will advise President Trump on national security and foreign policy matters, and this will place him in meetings at the highest level of government. Trump announced the news in a memorandum issued Saturday, in which he said the chief strategist will be an attendee at NSC meetings.
Trump’s chief strategist has been accused of having too much influence on the president with the hashtag #StopPresidentBannon trending following Friday’s ‘Muslim Ban.’
Some Twitter users ‘sympathized’ with Trump for putting in a lot of hard work to become president and – they say – is now seeing someone else take his job.
Others focused, instead, on attempting to infuriate the president, who they believe will be upset by losing Twitter followers.

That Steven Bannon is calling the shots, or the fact that everyone knows it?

Now he's acting like all three.
Some also used the hashtag to express support for Trump, slamming those who criticized the president for putting Americans first.
It's a sad day when our fellow Americans (Democrats) choose to prioritize the well-being of refugees over our own. #StopPresidentBannon— Brittany Pettibone (@BrittPettibone) January 29, 2017
