This weekend, President-elect Trump announced that he will appoint Stephen Bannon to be his chief strategist and senior counselor in the White House. A former editor of Breitbart News, Bannon is a leader of the alt-right (an extremist movement defined by the ADL as “a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists”).
Yesterday J Street issued a call to action, urging members of Congress speak out against – and call on Trump to rescind – Bannon’s appointment. Many members of Congress have answered the call – and if you don’t see your Representative or Senator on this list, make sure to take action today.
Note: We will continue to update this list as more senators and members of Congress release statements.
I joined 150 of my colleagues urging Trump to rescind his appointment of Bannon. He promised unity & this action undermines that pledge. https://t.co/l4635t9YE1

President-elect Trump should rescind appointment of Steve Bannon as White House Chief Strategist & Senior Counselor https://t.co/iIsIcccqBY

Disturbing for many RI’ers & me. If Trump wont denounce the dangerous ideas Steve Bannon’s represented, its on us to stand firm against them pic.twitter.com/4fwm6RN5hQ

Steve Bannon ran a website that trafficked in anti-Semitism & misogyny. He is an unacceptable choice to advise a U.S. president.

Hate should have no place in the WH. Pres.-elect Trump should rescind the appointment of Steve Bannon immediately. https://t.co/jCaEY3LPke
