The Alt-Right may like Trump, but that doesn’t mean Trump likes the Alt-Right, and he has specifically called on anyone harassing other Americans because of their race, religion or sexual orientation to “Stop it, right now!”

Trump also pledged to reject “bigotry and hatred and oppression in all its forms” and says “I will fight to ensure that every American is treated equally, protected equally, and honored equally.” Put these together with the fact that his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Jewish, and you can understand why Trump rejects racism, the KKK and white extremists.

He will be to the right of a Clinton administration on some issues, but further left on others: Wall St and the Banks can expect to have less influence in his government for example.
