Elizabeth Warren Slams Trump's Appointment of Stephen Bannon, Calls Him 'White Supremacist'


“People didn’t vote for Trump so he could bring a white supremacist into the White House."

At The Wall Street Journal's CEO Council Event in Washington D.C. yesterday, Elizabeth Warren took a stand against the appointment of Stephen Bannon to the role of Trump's chief strategist.

Warren criticizes Bannon's apointment and calls him a "bigot" and "white supremacist." To the CEOs in the room, she said: "People didn't vote for Trump so he could bring a white supremacist into the White House," and that "this is a man who says, by his very presence, that this is a White House that will embrace bigotry."

Warren appealed to the room's business-savvy way of thinking: "I just want to underline something that every one of you know: Bigotry is bad for business. Bigotry is not what your employees expect. Bigotry is not what your customers expect. And if that's the direction that this administration goes, that creates a real problem for everyone."

Check out her speech below:

Bannon, who previously served as the head of Breitbart News, has had a long career of attempting to normalize white supremicist, anti-Semitic language and beliefs. Headlines under his reign include "Does Feminism Make Women Ugly?" and "Would You Rather Your Children Have Feminism or Cancer?"

His ex-wife, Mary Louise Piccard, stated in a 2007 court case while fighting for child custody that Bannon didn't want his daughters attending a certain prep school, the Archer School for Girls, because "the biggest problem he had with Archer is the number of Jews that attend. He said that he doesn't like Jews and that he doesn't like the way they raise their kids to be 'whiney brats' and that he didn't want the girls going to school with Jews," New York Magazinereports.
