meet some of Trump’s White House Team –


Donald Trump campaigneStop Trump's toxic agenda. Join the fight.d on a divisive agenda of racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. Now Trump and his cronies have formally begun their assault on our core American values.

Trump’s responsibility as President-elect is to appoint responsible and qualified leaders to head our government agencies, set national policy, and stand up for American interests and values.

Instead, Trump selected a white nationalist champion1 as his chief strategist and a climate science denier2 to head his EPA transition team.

Donald Trump has unequivocally failed in his first responsibility as President-elect and shown that he will likely govern the way he campaigned — pitting Americans against each other, spreading hate and fear, and promising to befriend Big Oil insiders and corporate polluters.3

We can’t sit back and let Trump get his way. We must stand together and demand better. This is what a robust democracy is all about.

Meet some of Trump’s latest appointments to his inner circle.

Steve Bannon, Chief White House Strategist
Bannon championed the white nationalist movement and gave voice to racism, anti-semitism, and nationalism as the former head of Breitbart News.4 Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke called Bannon’s appointment “excellent” news that shows Trump is “sticking to the issues and the ideas that he proposed as a candidate.”5

Myron Ebell, head of Trump’s EPA transition team
Ebell is a fervent denier of climate science and has for years worked spreading misinformation at an advocacy group funded by the fossil fuel industry.6 Trump has put Ebell in charge of his EPA transition team, where he will work to dismantle the agency responsible for protecting our climate and keeping our air and water clean.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, member of Trump’s transition team
Amid criticism for having appointed no women other than his daughter to his transition team, Trump added Blackburn, best known for leading a politically motivated investigation into Planned Parenthood, threatening research that has the potential to cure Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.7 But Blackburn isn’t a single-issue crackpot: She also falsely claims the earth is cooling.8

Commit to push back on Trump’s toxic agenda.

NextGen Climate is part of the movement to stand against the Trump presidency. We’re glad you’re with us.
