Lauren McCauley — From Trump's White House, Bannon to Bolster Global Alt-Right Movement

Late Sunday, the Trump transition team announced that Bannon, executive chairman of far-right Breitbart News and CEO of the Trump campaign, will serve as chief strategist and senior counselor to the president, working as an "equal partner" with Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus, who is being appointed White House chief of staff.
This is unprecedented. Trump in effect appointed two White House chiefs of staff.
Now it appears that with Bannon by the incoming president's side, "[Breitbart] will be as close as we are ever going to have—hopefully—to a state-run media enterprise," said Kurt Bardella, a former Breitbart spokesperson.
"There is talk of Breitbart bureaus opening in Paris, Berlin, and Cairo, spots where the populist right is on the rise. A bigger newsroom is coming in Washington, the better to cover a president-elect whose candidacy it embraced," according to a New York Times report on Sunday, which Breitbart re-posted.
The site's editor, Alexander Marlow, told the newspaper that Breitbart's "international expansion was tied to upcoming elections in France and Germany," the Times reported.
"There’s an underserved readership" in Europe, Marlow said.
Further, Marlow said that the alt-right news site planned to support the candidacy of Marine Le Pen, the leader of France's National Front party.
It appears that Donald Trump seeks to give new meaning to America as "the leader of the free world."

Whatever, elites are on notice and have apparently gotten the message.
