The company Trump keeps
Over the past few days, Donald Trump has been rolling out the names of some of the people who will be a part of his administration. Leading his transition team is his anti-women, anti-LGBT Vice President-elect Mike Pence. He named Steve Bannon -- publisher of the racist, sexist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, white nationalist "news" site Breitbart -- as one of his most senior advisors. And his list of cabinet secretaries ranges from the extreme fringe of the Republican party (think Sarah Palin) to Wall Street and oil company CEOs.
They say you can judge a man by the company he keeps. Well, this list of future members of the Trump administration means we've got our work cut out for us over the next four years. But I have no doubt that if we stay committed to our values and steel ourselves to fight back against everything that's going to come out of this administration, we can keep Donald Trump from taking our country over the cliff.
But we're going to be counting on folks like you more than we ever have before to stand together with us. We were on the right side of history in this election, and we owe it to the future of this country to hold Donald Trump and his allies accountable.
Add your name, and we'll make sure you stay in-the-know about what Trump and the GOP are planning -- so that we can be ready for whatever comes our way:
Deputy Communications Director
Democratic National Committee
