In an unprecedented move, Donald Trump has named Stephen Bannon as Chief Strategist. Since this announcement, Democrats and Republicans alike have petitioned Trump to rescind Bannon's appointment. Why? Because Bannon and his website, Breitbart, have become synonymous with anti-Semitism and white supremacy. Need more reasons to keep him out of the "people's house?" Watch the clip above. [BLANK_AUDIO] The Anti-Defamation League, Southern Poverty Law Center, the NAACP, and even some republicans are criticizing Donald Trump's decision to make Stephen Bannon his chief strategist. So, who exactly is this Bannon character? Well, he led Breitbart.com, which is known for championing white nationalism Breitbart.com has advocated for a religious test for immigrants and in 2007, his ex-wife testified in a domestic violence case that Bannon didn't want their children going to school with Jewish people. Meanwhile, Trump himself recently told 60 Minutes that he wants those inciting violence and racism in his name to, quote, stop it. So does that go for your chief strategist? Or not. [BLANK_AUDIO]
