Influence of the "Alt-Right" Movement
This program was part of a “Washington Journal” series highlighting recent magazine articles.
Ben Schreckinger talked about his piece in the January/February 2017 issue of Politico Magazine titled “The Alt-Right Comes to Washington.” Topics included the evolution of the term “alt-right” from merely being to the right of the mainstream of national politics to associations with white nationalism and the reaction of some against being so labeled. Mr. Schreckinger talked about how they became influential in the Trump presidential campaign because Mr. Trump was not embraced by the mainstream Republican Party.
