Elizabeth Warren Calls Steve Bannon A White Supremacist

On Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appeared at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council to discuss the results of the 2016 election. Warren has been very critical of President-elect Donald Trump’s behavior and policies throughout the campaign, and Tuesday morning’s discussion was no exception.

The Wall Street Journal’s Gerald F. Seib asked Warren how the Democratic Party lost the white working-class voters in the 2016 election.

Warren took this opportunity to attack Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon. “People didn’t vote for Donald Trump so he could bring a white supremacist into the White House,” she said, referring to Bannon.

Bannon was the executive chairman of Breitbart News, a conservative news outlet, which members of the Democratic Party have painted as part of the alt-right during the course of the 2016 election.
