Breitbart News has begun branching its sphere of influence into the Oval Office, as President Donald Trump and former leader of the conservative news organization, Stephen Bannon, bring in more staff from the media conglomerate.
Some notable Breitbart employees making their way to Washington include Julia Hahn as an aide to Bannon, the new chief strategist, and national security editor, Sebastian Gorka, who will be teaming up with the president’s National Security Council.
Hahn’s particular area of expertise includes immigration, trade and economic populism, while Gorka’s focus is the threat of radical Islam.
Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow makes the following statement about Hahn and Gorka:
“Julia has been a champion for Trump’s anti-establishment base and understands the issues that helped get Donald Trump elected as well as anyone. Dr. Gorka has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Islamic State and caught on to it as a threat early on. They are huge hires for the White House on issues that are essential to Trump’s coalition and the polices he hopes to affect as president.”
In an interview with The Hill, one Breitbart reporter said the following: “I’m surprised it took this long. There are a number of people on staff who clearly have resumes that would lend themselves to the administration. These two are ideologically in line with Bannon. They’re people he can trust. It makes sense.”
The media website is looking to begin expanding globally, with plans to open offices in France, Italy and Germany.
