Hillary Clinton will take aim on Thursday at Donald Trump’s growing link the “alt-right” conservative movement that many associate with white nationalism, aides said.
In a campaign speech in Nevada Thursday afternoon, Clinton will argue that voters should be concerned that Trump has found support among the conservative group, which is often connected with isolationist or anti-immigration views, and grew from a desire to buck the Republican establishment.
“We intend to call out this ‘alt-right’ shift and the divisive and dystopian vision of America they put forth because it tells voters everything they need to know about Donald Trump himself,” said Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta in a statement. “Republicans up and down the ticket are going to have to choose whether they want to be complicit in this lurch toward extremism or stand with the voters who can’t stomach it.”
Trump strengthened his association with the movement last week when he brought Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon on board as his campaign chief executive.
