If you're plugged into current events, you've probably heard the term "alt-right." The alt-right is an ultra conservative, populist, nationalist movement in the United States. The media has often linked the alt-right with Donald Trump and his views, but alt-right has no official ideologies itself. The movement has found a self-proclaimed leader in Milo Yiannopoulos, a journalist with Breitbart, who co-authored a manifesto on its beliefs. Learn more about the movement in the videos below.
