Just when new management seemed in order at the Trump campaign, new information has come out that reveals the man who replaced Donald Trump’s previous campaign CEO might not have been much better of a choice. The new head honcho, Steve Bannon, has a history of anti-semitism, according to a 2007 court document that has recently resurfaced.
The document, pertaining to Bannon’s divorce from his ex-wife and a subsequent child support dispute, features a deposition from her in which she revealed that Bannon was unhappy with a prospective school for his daughters, Archer, due to “the number of Jews who attend.” Bannon was also revealed to have said that Jewish children are “whiney brats” and that he did not want his daughters going to school alongside them because they were Jewish.
According to the report:
When she told him there were Jewish children at a different school, she said he asked the percentage.
“I told him that I didn’t know because it wasn’t an issue for me as I am not raising the girls to be either anti-Semitic or prejudiced against anyone,” she said in the declaration.
Alexandra Preate, a spokeswoman for Bannon, disputed the claims.“At the time, Mr. Bannon never said anything like that and proudly sent the girls to Archer for their middle school and high school educations,” Preate said in a statement.
