Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The president’s chief strategist stayed with the Trump team about 1 year.

Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump, Salon.

It is interesting to note that a Harvard/MIT study recently proclaimed that Breitbart, the right wing publication Steve Bannon led before coming on board with Team Trump, was not racist, and not alt right.

Some headlines on the issue, noted above. Breitbart employs Jews, Muslims, and other ethnic/diversity groups, many in high visibility roles. That said, it is clearly right of center.

…and the bottom line is that investors are concerned that the pro-growth Trump agenda is being undermined. Per Fox Business.

The Trump press conference that created such a firestorm is shown below.  Watch it all, and ask yourself.  Did he say anything racist?  We’ve watched every minute, and there seems to be nothing racist about it.  No wonder the president attacks his opponents as “fake news.”

Bannon is back at Breitbart.  The word is that he will be providing the president cover from his previous role, which he lead the Breitbart editorial review discussion tonight. Stay tuned…
