Donald Trump has removed the highest ranking US military officer from his National Security Council, replacing him with the former boss of a far-right website.
Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff, will no longer be a permanent member of the council.
But Steve Bannon, the President's Chief Strategist and the former CEO of right wing website Breitbart will have a regular seat in the meetings.
Dunford, along with the Director of National Intelligence, John McConnell, have been bumped and will only attend meetings related to their "responsibilities and expertise."
Bannon, 62, is a skilled propagandist and darling of the so-called ‘alt-right’ - a term used to describe a movement of racist, anti-Muslim and white supremacist people on social media, which got behind Trump’s candidacy.
