Glenn Beck: Top Trump Advisor with White Nationalist Ties Is “a Nightmare” (Video)

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck called President-elect Donald Trump‘s choice for a top adviser, Steve Bannon, who has ties to the white nationalist movement, a “nightmare.” Bannon is the executive chairman of Breitbart News, a politically conservative American news, opinion and commentary website noted for its connection to the alt-right. Bannon will be chief strategist and senior counselor of the upcoming Trump Administration. Bannon describes himself as a nationalist.

The Hill reported,  “the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other white nationalist groups praised Trump’s selection of Bannon.” Former KKK leader David Duke said the choice was ‘excellent,’ according to The Hill.

Senator Minority Leader Harry Reid said in a statement, “President-elect Trump’s choice of Steve Bannon as his top aide signals that white supremacists will be represented at the highest levels in Trump’s White House.”

One study found that 31 percent of people using the hashtag #whitegenocide follow Breitbart, and 62 percent of those using the hashtag #counterjihad do also, said Mother Jones. “He’s a nightmare,” Beck said of Bannon. “And he’s the chief adviser to the president of the United States now.”
