"... folks that are bitter the election's over ..."

House Democrats are demanding that the winner of Tuesday’s presidential election should listen to the losing party in shaping the next administration.

A group of 169 House Democrats are insisting President-elect Donald Trump rescind the appointment of Breitbart News Executive Steve Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon served as Trump’s campaign CEO for the final months of the general election campaign.

“Bigotry, anti-Semitism and xenophobia should have no place in our society, and they certainly have no place in the White House,” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said Wednesday in a statement.

“Whether intentional or not, the appointment of Mr. Bannon sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be,” he added.

No Republicans signed the letter to Trump. Last week, Republicans gained control of the White House while maintaining control of both houses of Congress.

The letter to Trump said unity is impossible while Trump has an adviser like Bannon.

“Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the white nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country,” the letter said.

“Millions of Americans have expressed fear and concern about how they will be treated by the Trump administration and your appointment of Mr. Bannon only exacerbates and validates their concerns. We strongly believe that Mr. Bannon’s appointment will not allow the country to heal and come together as one,” the letter added.

As Democrats hammered Bannon, others defended him.

Bannon’s critics are “folks that are bitter the election’s over,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said. “They didn’t get the result that they wanted.”

“Steve Bannon is someone who’s done a fantastic job implementing the president-elect’s vision on the campaign trail,” Miller said. “He’s someone I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past three or four months, someone I’ve seen very high character from.”

Breitbart Senior Editor-at-large Joel Pollak told NPR that Bannon “has no prejudices, he treats people equally, and, in fact, during my time working closely with him at Breitbart for five years, he sought out people from diverse backgrounds and gave them a voice at Breitbart.”

Pollak said Bannon is “from a conservative perspective at least, a national hero, because in helping Donald Trump win, he’s helped defend the Supreme Court and the Constitution.”

I've got a better solution!!!!!!!!!

Unity?...the democrats wouldn't know unity if it was a self-inserting suppository. All they've ever done my whole life is divide, deceive, delude, disenfranchise and demoralize. They're this generation's "slime of humanity". Ban them indeed.

Great point!

Anyone the dumb o crates don't like is good news for US, our side!

Frank, they are doing it ALL BY THEMSELVES!!!  And it's a riot to watch!!!  Just imagine the next 2 years, starting with Keith Ellison!!!!!  Everything they do these days reinforces the election of Donald J. Trump.

....and I'm lovin' it!

NO, He should stay..that is Trumps' choice and they have no say..so there.

when DID IT BECOME STANDARD PRACTICE for the LOSING side to DICTATE THE TERMS UNDER HOW A NEW ADMINISTRATION DOES THINGS????

The Democrats LOST the election in The White House The House of Reps. & The Senate A LOSS IS STILL LOOSING IS STILL LOOSING IS STILL LOOSING & the Dems. LOST!!!!!!!

Sounds more like it is 'BLACKMAIL' AND LESS LIKE A REQUEST FOR UNITY. . . .An Or Else - - -

Is it impossible for them to get it? They Do Not Decide Anything for Pres Elect Trump! They did not control him in the runup to the Election and they damn sure will not NOW!  This reminds me of their Grade School sitin!!

Mr Bannon is far a better pick then the man Obama picked Van Jones he proved to be a low life that wanted freedom in America to be vanished and Communism to replace the foundation this Great Nation was built on. I think Trump has the right to keep who he wants, and if it up sets the demon rats to bad there welcome to move to the Middle East starting from the sanction city's and the colleges that want to protect the Mexican cartel and the ISIS implants that is hiding in the sanction city's waiting to rise up to cause havick to all America people. It seems our youth today have been feed a 7 course meat of socialism and they like the crap there feed. There seems to be no shame in their actions from killing police officers to destroying cars and homes to businesses. Shouldn't those who are being attacked have the right to protect their family's and homes and income. Is it going to take students being shot like in the past, I'd pray not. But when there isn't any order, there is anarchy And it brings evil things to happen. If those aginist our laws are law Braker's and should be treated as shouch no one is above the Law and perhaps they need reminded. When a persons freedom is taken they soon learn to respect it. It has always be known that a person will fight to keep something they got, rather then to work to get it.

Tell the House & Senate Democrats to go POUND SAND!

Such arrogance?!

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
