Former Vermont Democratic Gov. Howard Dean says President-elect Donald Trump’s newly appointed chief strategist Stephen Bannon is a “Nazi.”
Dean, who has indicated interest in reprising his role as Democratic National Committee chairman, made the comment to the Canadian news outlet CTV in an interview posted Sunday.
Referring to Trump’s selection of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to be White House chief of staff, Dean said Trump is a “complicated guy.”
“He appoints a reasonable person, who’s much more conservative than I am, but for somebody who can talk to, as chief of staff, and then his senior adviser is a Nazi,” Dean said, adding that Bannon is “anti-Semitic, he’s anti-black and he’s anti-women.”
