Reports have surfaced saying that among those being considered for President-elect Donald Trump's chief of staff is none other than his campaign's chief executive officer, Stephen K. Bannon.

Before being appointed to his high position in Trump's campaign, Bannon lead the Trump friendly site Breitbart.com, which became a hub for many Trump supporters to get their news, and drew the ire of many from both the left and the right due to its very open bias toward then Republican candidate.

Bannon is not the only one being considered, and will have a tough competitor in GOP chairman Reince Priebus, who is also being considered for the chief of staff position. Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager who was fired from the position, is also being considered.

Bannon has no shortage of enemies, including on the right.

While Bannon seems to come with some baggage, Priebus's standing with many other Republicans — such as Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and vice president-elect Mike Pence — may serve to further assuage fears that a Trump presidency will fall too far into a section of the right many Republicans feel is too extreme.
