    More than 150 members of the House of Representatives have signed a letter urging President-elect Donald Trump to rescind his appointment of Stephen Bannon to a key White House post, a Rhode Island congressman announced Wednesday.

    The 169 US representatives — all Democrats — included the entire delegations from both Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

    Representative David Cicilline, who led the effort, said in a statement Wednesday that the appointment of Bannon “sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be.”

    The letter, first announced by Cicilline on Tuesday, asks President-elect Trump to rescind his appointment of Bannon as the White House chief strategist and senior counselor and also to “build a diverse White House staff who are committed to the core American values of inclusiveness, diversity and tolerance.”
