Ana Navarro: Trump's Appointments 'Very Concerning'

Republican consultant Ana Navarro expressed her concern for President-elect Donald Trump's choice of White House staffers during an appearance on CNN's "New Day" Monday.

"I think that the appointments he makes early on are the first signal he sends about what kind of president he is going to be," Navarro said. "Many of us are torn by the utter disdain that we have for candidate Donald Trump and the utmost respect we have for the office of the presidency of the United States, and we want to give this guy a chance. We want to extend the olive branch and extend one to us, but if what he is doing is naming somebody like Steve Bannon, who has got such a track record and such a reputation for being controversial, for leading the hunting season against Republicans.

"Forget about everybody else who has filled his (Breitbart) publication with anti-Semitic, anti-Hispanic, anti-everything type of headlines, you have got to be very concerned," she added.

Bannon's ex-wife Mary Louise Piccard accused Bannon of complaining that there were too many Jewish students at the school his children attended, during their contentious divorce proceedings.

"He said that he doesn't like the way they raise their kids to be 'whiny brats' and that he didn't want the girls going to school with Jews," Piccard wrote in a 2007 court declaration, according to The New York Daily News.

Navarro did applaud the choice of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as chief of staff.

"He is a normal guy," she said. "He doesn't assault women, he is not anti-Hispanic and anti-immigrant. At this point, I'll take him and I'll love him. It was like you saw Donald Trump appoint Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde [Sunday] night, and it is very concerning for people, because those hate crimes that are going on in America are real. We are not making them up."

Navarro, who was born in Nicaragua but is an American citizen, previously aided Republican presidential candidates Jeb Bush and John McCain. In the 2016 election, she supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and repudiated Trump's remarks about Hispanics.

"I want him to stop playing games and pretending that he doesn't know these hate crimes are going on out there," Navarro said. "I want him to really, genuinely address his supporters. He needs to do more. Donald Trump needs to understand that, whether he is a racist or not, he peddled in this for the last 18 months, and he unearthed an ugly underbelly in America."
