At the red-hot center of President Donald Trump's first 10 days in office has been his strategist Stephen Bannon, who proclaims a global populist movement for "Judeo-Christian" values and against radical Islam. Bannon is a passionate ideologue who is the intellectual center of the new administration.Trump's "America First" trade policies and his anti-refugee travel ban are early glimmers of the revolution Bannon has long been advocating.The weakness of Bannon's strategy in these first days of Trump's presidency has been its impatience and disorganization.By 2014, Bannon saw himself leading what he called a "global tea party movement" against a financial elite that he described as "the party of Davos".Bannon pressed that theme after Trump's victory, telling Breitbart's radio show on Dec. 30 it was only the "top of the first inning".Last Friday's travel ban echoed themes Bannon has developed over a half-dozen years. Bannon undeniably has a powerful radical vision.
