Congressman Ted Lieu

Representing the 33rd District of California

CONGRESSMAN LIEU STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S APPOINTMENT OF STEVE BANNON

November 15, 2016
Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WashingtonToday, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement in light of the announcement that alt-right movement leader and Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon will be Chief Strategist for President-elect Trump’s White House.

“President-elect Trump must withdraw the appointment of Steve Bannon as White House Chief Strategist.  Bannon’s Breitbart engaged in racist, anti-Semitic, xenophobic and homophobic hate speech.  Now Bannon has a seat in the Oval Office and that is unacceptable.  In the wake of a historically divisive campaign, President-elect Trump must demonstrate that he is the President for every American, not just the alt-right.”
