Senate Republicans praise Trump…on April 5, 2017 at 3:31 pm
Senate Republicans praised President Trump for shaking up his National Security Council on Wednesday and removing his chief adviser Steve Bannon from its key committee.
“Nothing against Mr. Bannon personally, but having a political operative on the Security Council was always a bridge too far for me,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Yahoo News. “I think this is a good move for the president.”
Trump’s order, first reported by Bloomberg, also restores the previous roles of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and director of national intelligence, while adding the United Nations ambassador, the energy secretary and the CIA director to the principals committee of the NSC, which meets regularly to discuss national security threats.
