Trump Taps 2 More from Breitbart to Top Administration Positions

HeadlineJan 25, 2017

Trump has tapped two more members of the far right-wing outlet Breitbart Media to join his administration. Breitbart’s national security editor Sebastian Gorka is likely to join Trump’s National Security Council. Immigration reporter Julia Hahn has been named special assistant to the president. Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, is the former head of Breitbart, which frequently publishes racist, sexist, anti-immigrant and xenophobic news. Trump has also tapped John Gore, a lawyer who has defended gerrymandering and extreme voter ID laws, to serve as one of the Department of Justice’s top senior civil rights officials.
