The chairman of Breitbart News will be President-elect Donald Trump's chief strategist in the White House.
Steve Bannon's promotion in the Trump empire — he served as CEO of Trump's presidential campaign — was met with horror from civil rights groups and Jewish and Muslim organizations.
“It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the alt-right … is slated to be a senior staff member in the people’s house,” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said.
Bannon once described Breitbart News as the "platform for the alt-right," or alternative right. It's a brand of far-right conservatism that generally embraces and promotes white nationalism, racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia and misogyny.
