Congressman Sires Statement on the appointment of Steve Bannon to top a White House post
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement on President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon to a top White House position: “The appointment of Steve Bannon, a man who promotes xenophobic, racist, and radical ideologies is not the way to bring people together.
