Statement from Rep. Capuano on President-Elect Trumpís Naming of Stephen Bannon as Chief Strategist

November 15, 2016

"Donald Trump did not hide his views from the American people over the last year so it should come as a surprise to no one that he has chosen someone as his chief strategist who has repeatedly expressed racist and anti-Semitic views and has demeaned women. If President-elect Trump meant it when he said he wanted to bring the country together and represent all of us, he will withdraw his offer to Stephen Bannon. The views that Bannon has embraced have no place in the White House or anywhere in our country."
