The leaders of the black, Hispanic, Asian and Progressive caucuses are calling for President Trump to remove White House chief strategist Steve Bannon after the violent white nationalist groups' rally in Charlottesville, Va. In a letter to the president they wrote, "Americans deserve to know that white nationalists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis are not in a position to influence U.S. policy". Opponents have accused Bannon of personally supporting white nationalism and are blaming him for the President's controversial responses to the incident.
