The White House Chief Strategist was a senior White House official who worked to execute the administration's long-term agenda and provided counsel to the President on all critical matters. The position was created in December 2016 by then-President-elect Donald Trump. At that time, Trump appointed Steve Bannon, his former campaign CEO, to fill the newly created position.[1] As a staff member in the Executive Office of the President, the position did not require Senate confirmation.[citation needed]

As originally conceived, the Chief Strategist had nearly equivalent authority to that of the Chief of Staff, an arrangement "aimed at ensuring that both (the Chief of Staff and Chief Strategist) would be required to sign off on many decisions jointly."[1]

On January 28, 2017, the White House Chief Strategist was designated a permanent member of the United States National Security Council Principals Committee by a presidential memorandum signed by President Trump.[2]

On April 5, 2017, President Trump removed the Chief Strategist from the United States National Security Council Principals Committee, though he still attended meetings.[3][4]

On August 18, 2017, Bannon was fired as White House Chief Strategist[5] and returned to Breitbart News.[6]
