McEachin Statement on Steve Bannon’s Elevation to Senior White House Role
 
RICHMOND —Responding to President-elect Donald Trump’s elevation of Steve Bannon to a senior White House role, Congressman-elect A. Donald McEachin made the following statement:
 
“I am extremely disappointed at the senior appointment given to alt-right hero Steve Bannon, who has spent years promoting a white nationalist platform.
 
“I have called on the president-elect to move beyond the hatred and the bile and the divisiveness of his campaign, for the sake of all Americans. Instead, much to my dismay, it appears he is doubling down on bigotry and division.
 
“I am more determined than ever to keep fighting for our values — ideals like fairness and tolerance and basic human decency. I will continue doing all I can to ensure that all people are treated with the respect that they deserve — regardless of who sits, or works, in the White House.”
