    President-elect Donald Trump is tapping Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee’s chairman, to join his new administration as chief of staff, Trump’s transition team announced Sunday. Steve Bannon, the Trump campaign’s CEO and former head of Breitbart news, will also be on the White House leadership team as the chief strategist.

    Draining that swamp real good like with 90s/00s GOP runoff I see.

    The people who voted for him because of the outsider factor are already looking like a bunch of fools.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Good idea 1986. Be very interesting to see who Trump chooses for what job. Keep us posted.

    Mike Pence will head the transition team. He replaces Chris Cristie. Guess Bridgegate hurt the rotund one.

    These guys really are outsiders. The exception is Priebus who didn't think he wanted the job. Apparently his role will be to smooth the communications between the GOP and the Administration. But Pence is conservative Christian who passed anti-gay marriage legislation in Indiana. Bannon and Breitbart are taboo words due to its vehement criticism of Capitol Hill. Gingrich should round out the group. They are definitely not neocon.

    To hear Gingrich, he simply wants an advisory role.

    Re: President Trump's Team

    Is "Chief Strategist & Senior Advisor" a new position? If not who occupied that previously?

    Valerie Jarrett is a senior advisor to Obama. Don't know about the strategist part.

    As I understand it, Bannon will help Trump determine what to do, and Reince will lead execution.

    To be fair, it took an entire 8 minutes.
