It is now known that Trump has picked-up Stephen K. Bannon as the "Chief Strategist" and Richard B. Spencer might also be getting a key role to play in the Trump administration.
As the report says, Bannon as the editor of the website Breitbart.com created a space for racist and intolerant viewpoints, whereas Richard Spencer is a white American nationalist known for promoting white supremacist views.
Selection of Bannon for such a crucial role is facing a lot of opposition not only from American people but formerly CTO of Republican Party Andrew Barkett has put his opinion on this in his Facebook post.
What Donald Trump has to say about this and controversial recruits, and what is the reaction of American citizens is a big story. Let's find out.
Donald Trump, much before his eagerly-awaited meeting with Barack Obama in the Oval Office of the White House to initiate the transition of power, had started picking up controversial people for carrying out his task effectively.
Trump is already facing accusations since his presidential campaign began, and now these top recruits add more controversies under his belt.
Richard Spencer, a white American nationalist and the president of National Policy Institute is the one who created the term "alt-right" movement, a term he says "serves a purpose" about white identity. The alt-right is a loose group of people with far right ideologies who reject mainstream conservatism in the US.
Richard is always getting his name in the headlines for his controversial statements and actions. In 2014, Richard got expelled from Budapest, Hungary, and is already banned from 26 European countries for almost three years, after trying to organize National Policy Institute conference there.
In November 2016, he came into the limelight for his speech at an 'alt-right' conference that was attended by more than 200 people in the city of the White House. He has given a speech at many 'alt-right' conferences, but this one attracted many controversies because he chose to end his speech with a Nazi salute, "Hail Trump! Hail Our People! Hail Victory!"
After doing all these, and facing opposition from American people, Richard Spencer is considered to have a place in the core White House team.
Though Donald Trump renounced the 'alt-right' group that celebrated his win with "Hail America! Hail Trump!" salutes. But, the Americans want to know, why Trump is even considering to have him onboard?
Steve Bannon is an American campaign manager, media executive, and businessman. His work and ideologies have always created controversies. After serving US Navy for more than seven years, Bannon worked as an investment banker, and then went on to become an executive producer in Hollywood.
Bannon has also served as board member for Breitbart News, where his identity completely became as the most controversial man in America. Under Bannon's leadership. The Breitbart website injected xenophobic, sexist, racist, and anti-semitic thoughts into the veins of alt-right people.
Getting impressed by Bannon's credentials, Trump appointed him as his chief executive officer for the presidential campaign. Steve successfully carried out the poll campaign which ensured the victory of Trump over Hillary; Steve has now been entrusted with the task of 'Chief Strategist' for the Trump government. But, it's not surprising that the mainstream media and American people are opposed to Steve's selection.
He is, currently, a Central Committee Member-elect for the Republican Party Central Committee in San Mateo County, Andrew shared his views about the failure of President-elect Donald Trump.
In his long and informational post on his Facebook account, Andrew asked his Republican colleagues to denounce Bannon, and Spencer along with the white-nationalist movement, the neo-nazi movement, and the identitarian movement.
Reminding people of Lincoln era, Barkett tried making a point and politely said, 'Many true Americans have lost their lives only to control the racism and intolerance.'
In the end, he wrote, "I demand President-elect Trump and all Republicans honor their legacy with me." #AlwaysLincoln
Well, his this post is getting tremendous support from true Americans, as he is trying his best to help President-elect Donald Trump from electing wrong people to run the government.
