House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Monday blasted Donald Trump's hire of Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist, saying it proves the president-elect "remains committed to the hateful and divisive vision that defined his campaign."

Pelosi, D-Calif., released a statement rebuking Trump for putting a "white nationalist" in the White House. Bannon served as Trump's campaign chairman since August after another campaign shakeup.

"President-elect Trump must try to bring Americans together — not continue to fan the flames of division and bigotry," Pelosi said. "Bringing Steve Bannon into the White House is an alarming signal that President-elect Trump remains committed to the hateful and divisive vision that defined his campaign."

The top Democrat in the House congratulated Trump just a few days ago and said she was looking forward to working with the president-elect on infrastructure and jobs.

Then Trump hired Bannon.

"There must be no sugarcoating the reality that a white nationalist has been named chief strategist for the Trump Administration," Pelosi wrote.
