Rep. Keith Ellison Refers to WH Adviser Steve Bannon as ‘President’

Democratic leadership continues to refuse to call Donald Trump “president.”

Democratic National Committee Vice Chair, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), referred to White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon as President of the United States during a press conference outside of the U.S. Capitol on Thursday.

“We call on Donald Trump, President Steve Bannon, and everybody else to stand up and denounce this hateful activity,” Ellison said at a press conference rejecting and protesting hate crimes against Muslims.

Since President Trump was inaugurated, Democrats have tried to delegitimize his presidency by refusing to refer to him as “president.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently admitted that it’s “hard” for her to call Donald Trump “president.”
