On Tuesday, 169 House Democrats have signed a letter to Donald Trump urging the President-elect to remove Stephen Bannon from his senior White House position.
"Millions of Americans have expressed fear and concern about how they will be treated by the Trump Administration," the lawmakers wrote, "and your appointment of Mr. Bannon only exacerbates and validates their concerns."
On Sunday, Trump announced that Bannon, would serve as his chief strategist and senior counselor.
More than 30 members of California's delegation signed, including Rep. Adam Schiff.
Before Breitbart, Bannon worked as an investment banker and media executive. He met Breitbart's founder, Andrew Breitbart while working on a documentary about Ronald Reagan.
He has advocated for a "virulently anti-establishment" movement in Washington.
The Southern Poverty Law Center highlighted Bannon's endorsement from racist forum Stormfront.
Support from White Nationalists
White Nationalist leaders praised Trump's decision to appoint Bannon to the White House position.
"I think that's excellent," former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke told CNN.
In their letter, lawmakers pointed out that Bannon also received praise from other White Nationalists, including American Nazi Party Chairman Rocky J. Suhayda, Richard Spender, Peter Brimelow, and Brad Griffin.
Uniting the country
Democrats finished their letter to Trump saying Bannon's appointment "will not allow the country to heal and come together as one."
The letter, circulated by Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline, added that the White House chief strategist "must be prepared to serve the interests of all Americans, not those of a select few."
Trump has maintained confidence in Bannon, who has reportedly been calling GOP lawmakers to talk about their concerns.
