House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called President Donald Trump's chief strategist a white supremacist Thursday, saying he has no business serving on the National Security Council, reports the Chicago Tribune.
At her weekly press conference, Pelosi didn't mention Steve Bannon by name. But she was clearly referring to the former head of Breitbart News, a conservative website, the Chicago Tribune writes.
"What's making America less safe is to have a white supremacist named to the National Security Council as a permanent member, while the chairman of the Joint Chiefs and the director of national intelligence are told, 'don't call us, we'll call you,'" Pelosi said.
"It's a stunning thing," she added.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
Trump made Bannon a regular member of the council's powerful Principals Committee, which enables him to attend full council meetings as well.
Probably because he is a very smart guy.
