As one of his first decision as President, Donald Trump put his political strategist Steve Bannon on the national security council which made no sense to anyone and was seen by many as a dangerous sign.

But on April 4, a presidential memorandum took Bannon, the former Breitbart News executive of the US’s main body for foreign policy and national security decision-making, restoring the traditional roles of the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and the director of national intelligence onto the NSC.

Trump’s second national security adviser, army lieutenant general HR McMaster, will now step up to the appropriate role. Bannon still remains close to Trump and is still believed to be his closest advisor but could this be the first chink in his armor?
