About the bill
Among President Trump’s closest advisors is Stephen Bannon, a leader of the alt-right movement and co-founder of Breitbart, one of the most popular websites for the ideology. He served as chief executive of Trump’s campaign and now serves as chief strategist to the president. Many critics believe that he’s racist, misogynist, and xenophobic. Bannon, for what it’s worth, denies the validity of attacks Democrats level against him, calling himself an “economic nationalist” in response to critics who called him a “white nationalist.”
