Trump hands his campaign to the "alt-right" movement

Specifically, Ms. Geller said Bannon “articulates what millions of Americans are thinking about how we need to tell the truth about jihad and the Muslim migrant invasion of the West.”

Trump’s open moves toward the alt-right could be effective in renewing the candidate’s focus on Mrs. Clinton. A renewed line of attack on Clinton has the capacity to hurt a vulnerable front-runner who also has historically high unfavorable ratings in polls.
