Trump has chosen Steve Bannon, a White Nationalist, as chief strategist and senior counselor.... "Bannon is about to become one of the most influential people in the country."
White Nationalist Definition from Southern Poverty Law Center - White nationalist groups espouse white supremacist or white separatist ideologies, often focusing on the alleged inferiority of nonwhites. Groups listed in a variety of other categories - Ku Klux Klan, neo-Confederate, neo-Nazi, racist skinhead, and Christian Identity - could also be fairly described as white nationalist.
"Bannon is a longtime record of bigoted statements, as documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center among others. When both the Anti-Defamation League and the Council on American-Islamic Relations -- two groups that have clashed with each other -- immediately condemn the same thing, then you know something is not normal. And, in this case, it is also not acceptable. "
"Bigotry isn't just immoral. It puts democracy at risk by threatening the equal citizenship of those who are targeted. Trump’s threats against the media and against his political opponents, by undermining legitimate opposition, are in the same category. "
