    Jewish activists are protesting against the appointment of Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of the right-wing website Breitbart News, as Trump’s White House chief strategist.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A group of Jewish protesters stormed on Thursday the General Services Administration (GSA) building in the US capital where the team of the newly elected US President Donald Trump works, one of the activists reported.

    The activists are protesting against the appointment of Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of the right-wing website Breitbart News, as Trump’s White House chief strategist, Rachel Roberts, an activist participating in the rally, wrote on her Twitter page.

    ​The protest has been reportedly organized by the IfNotNow jewish activist group.

    Protests have taken place daily in several US cities since Trump’s victory against Democrat Hillary Clinton. Although Trump received 290 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232, she won the popular vote.
