I’ve heard from many of you who are deeply troubled by President-Elect Trump’s appointment of Stephen Bannon as White House Chief Strategist. I too am outraged by this decision. Mr. Bannon has ties to the White Nationalist movement and a history of spreading racist, anti-Semitic, and xenophobic rhetoric. He shouldn’t be serving in the White House, and his appointment undermines the President-Elect’s vow to unite the nation after a particularly divisive campaign. I will be bringing together my colleagues this week and asking President-Elect Trump to reconsider the selection of Stephen Bannon and to appoint an individual who truly represents America’s values.
