Pressure on Trump to fire Bannon mounts after violence in Charlottesville


trump-bannonA weekend of violence in Charlottesville, Virginia caused by white nationalists is leading to pressure on President Donald Trump to fire the man in his White House who is most closely linked to the movement.

Last year, the Southern Poverty Law Center called chief strategist Steve Bannon “the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill.”

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) last year blasted Trump’s decision to bring Bannon into the White House:

“Mr. Bannon is adored by white supremacists, white nationalists, anti-Semites, neo-Nazis, and the KKK. It’s not hard to see why. If the President-elect is serious about rejecting bigotry, hatred, and violence from his supporters, he must rescind Stephen Bannon’s appointment. This man shouldn’t be allowed to visit the White House ― let alone run it.”

Likewise, a spokesman for then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nevada) said Bannon’s presence in the administration “signals that white supremacists will be represented at the highest levels in Trump’s White House.”

Now, critics want Trump to axe him, with #FireBannon trending on Twitter for much of Sunday evening:

    He cannot fire him… They brought him to power. He needs them for next election.

      Watch Obama runs for the white next term and he will sweep it due to the current policies. I voted for Trump and will never vote democrat but Obama will capitalize on the anger out there and he will use it to his advantage. I hope he doesn’t because then I was tired of Obama and now of Trump. Trump even if he makes it thru the 4 years he should stay away from the government period.

        Trump is here to clear the zionist swamp, and clear it he will. They cannot touch him with a feather as being anti-semite since his daughter is married to an orthodox jew.
