Nancy Pelosi Blasts Steve Bannon as a “White Supremacist” in Surprising House Tirade

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday referred to President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, as a “white supremacist.”

Pelosi’s comments, at her weekly news conference, came in the context of Bannon’s permanent membership in the National Security Council, a development she called “stunning.”

“It’s a stunning thing, that a white supremacist would be a permanent member of the National Security Council,” she said, adding that it is “making America less safe.”

This is not the first time the Democratic leader has been critical of Bannon, or even that she’s suggested he is a racist.

Back in November, when Mr. Trump’s transition team announced that Bannon would be joining the White House as his chief strategist, Pelosi referred to him as a “white nationalist” and urged Vice President Mike Pence to get Mr. Trump to reconsider his hiring.
