In recent news regarding President-elect Donald Trump, he has appointed Reince Priebus and Stephen Bannon to chief of staff and chief strategist respectively. Priebus has been a chairman of the Republican National Committee while Bannon has a media executive for Breibart New Network. Priebus brings a key factor to the table as he is said to have close ties to House Speaker Paul Ryan. This connection could serve to promote common ground between Ryan and Trump as Ryan has spoken against Trump's policies during Trump's campaign. Since both houses of congress are under Republican control, it is imperative for the Donald Trump to connect with traditional Republicans in order to achieve goals and tasks.
