Clinton to give speech linking Trump to ‘alt-right’

Hillary Clinton will deliver a speech Thursday linking Donald Trump to the “extremism” of the “alt-right” movement.

Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday morning that her Reno, Nev., speech would focus on Trump and his aides’ “embrace of the disturbing ‘alt-right’ political philosophy.”
 
{mosads}”This ‘alt-right’ brand is embracing extremism and presenting a divisive and dystopian view of America which should concern all Americans, regardless of party,” her campaign said. 
 
The alternative right, or so-called alt-right, movement has generally been comprised as those opposed to multiculturalism and immigration, according to The Washington Post, and has gained mainstream attention during this year’s presidential campaign as Trump seeks to maximize support among white voters.
 
The Post reported over the weekend that members of the movement have been excited over Trump’s candidacy, including Trump last week installing Steve Bannon, an executive for the far-right Breitbart News, as his new campaign CEO.
