The Boston Globe reports that nearly 170 members of the House of Representatives have signed a letter urging President-elect Donald Trump to rescind his appointment of White Supremacist and Alt-Right poster boy Steve Bannon to the post of White House chief strategist and senior counselor in the new Trump Administration.

Representative David Cicilline, who led the effort, said in a statement Wednesday that the appointment of Bannon “sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be.”

The letter, first announced by Cicilline on Tuesday, asks President-elect Trump to rescind his appointment of Bannon as the White House chief strategist and senior counselor and also to “build a diverse White House staff who are committed to the core American values of inclusiveness, diversity and tolerance.”

The letter is shown below.
