Donald Trump's new chief of staff, Reince Priebus, did a string of television interviews Monday, but took almost as many questions about the president-elect's other major appointment: chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
Trump's critics are bashing the Bannon appointment by saying the website he once headed — Breitbart News — traffics in racism and anti-Semitism, while the president-elect and his aides defend the newly appointed chief strategist and senior counselor to the Trump White House.
Bannon himself has been accused of sharing the racist, and anti-Semitic views of some on what is called the "alt-right." Trump aides said he is not like that.
"That's not the Steve Bannon that I know and I've spent a lot of time with him," Priebus said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "And here's a guy who's a Harvard Business School, London School of Economics, (and) 10-year Naval officer advising admirals. He was a force for good on the campaign at every level that I saw, all the time."
