Justin Trudeau talks with his American counterpart in Washington about reworking a North American free trade deal, saying Canada’s negotiators are braced for surprises from the Trump administration.
Last month, video from a white nationalist conference in Washington, D.C. went viral. The annual event was put on by the National Policy Institute, and its president, Richard Spencer, was filmed telling attendees about what Donald Trump’s election victory meant for the so-called alt-right; that white people must “conquer or die.”
Describing the United States as a nation that was “until this past generation a white country, designed for ourselves and our posterity,” Spencer concluded his remarks by declaring, “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory.” Some members of the audience responded with the Nazi salute.
Credited with founding the term “alt-right” in 2008, Spencer advocates for a “White Ethno-State on the North American continent” and giving up “the false dreams of equality and democracy.” It’s these views that resulted in a travel ban to the United Kingdom placed on Spencer by the then-home secretary Theresa May.
VICE News Tonight met with Spencer shortly after the conference to discuss the rise of the alt-right and the role he’s played in it.

The EU resolution was adopted in Strasbourg with 304 MEPs supporting it, 179 voting against and 208 abstaining. It was drawn up by a Polish member of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) group, Anna Fotyga, and is based on a report dubbed ‘EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties’.
The report says that Russian media attempts to ‘distort the truth, provoke doubt, divide the EU and its North American partners, paralyze the decision-making process, discredit the EU institutions and incite fear and uncertainty among EU citizens.’ The document singles out RT, Sputnik news agency, the Rossotrudnichestvo federal agency and the Russkiy Mir (Russian World) fund as being particularly devious tools of propaganda.
