"I want to make sure that everybody understands that the alt-right is real. It is truly terrifying, in my opinion," Beck said on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."

Beck spoke with Cooper about Stephen Bannon, who previously served as the chairman of Breitbart News and will be President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump says he doesn't want NYT in the White House Veterans group backs lawsuits to halt Trump's use of military funding for border wall Schiff punches back after GOP censure resolution fails MORE's chief strategist.

Beck has previously accused Bannon, who also served as the Trump campaign's chief executive officer, of having ties to white nationalists and called him "a nightmare."

On Tuesday, he went after Bannon for openly admitting that Brietbart is a mouth-piece for the alt-right movement.

But Beck stopped short of calling the president-elect a racist.

"I do not believe that Donald Trump is a member of the alt-right. I don't believe he believes any of this. I don't even think that Donald Trump is a racist. He is many things, but I don't think he's a racist," Beck added.
