Congressman Jim Cooper is joining calls for President-elect Donald Trump to drop top advisor Steve Bannon from his leadership team.

The Nashville Democrat says Bannon's selection as Trump's chief strategist is a "terrible mistake" and describes Bannon a hate-monger and fear-monger who will make it harder for Trump to achieve his stated goal of reconciling Americans after a divisive election.
