If we can’t organize to stop the appointment of Steve Bannon, a known white nationalist, we’re not going to be able to do anything to stop Trump

Earlier this week, as we discussed a few days ago, President-elect Donald Trump announced that he would be appointing Steve Bannon, the race-baiting head of Breitbart News, his chief White House strategist.
