Backlash Over Bannon

Trump’s pick for leading role in government draws ire from many


Democrats, interest groups, and moderate Republicans alike have expressed deeply rooted anger over Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon, Breitbart CEO, as the White House Chief Strategist yesterday. Breitbart, the primary news source for the alt-right, is accused by many of being racist and sexist, among other things, allegations that Trump has faced throughout his campaign.
