Civil rights group wary of incoming Trump administration

WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation's largest civil rights groups on Monday announced plans to closely monitor President-elect Donald Trump administration's policies and actions.

This comes from the NAACP, the National Urban League, the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and the National Action Network.

Wade Henderson is the president of Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. He says they will oppose any proposal that would roll back civil rights.

They also criticized the appointment of conservative media executive Stephen Bannon as Trump's senior counselor.

Melanie Campbell is the president of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. She said Bannon's appointment will not help unify the country.
