Many lawmakers are joining Senator Bernie Sanders in calling on Donald Trump to immediately remove Steve Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News, from his new position as chief strategist. "This is a really negative message throughout the world that you have someone who has a history and a practice of dividing and pitting one people against another," says Kevin de León, president pro-tem of the California State Senate.

The United Nations says it hopes to mobilize $100 billion to combat climate change and to help compensate victims of global warming. But activists at the climate summit in Morocco say countries are pledging far too little. At a protest today, they held signs reading "WTF?" or "Where’s the Finance?" "The worst part is, $100 billion is not even close to what we need for climate finance," says Aneesa Khan of the group Earth in Brackets. "The amount we need is in the trillions." We get response from Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and former U.N. high commissioner for human rights.
