Like the proverbial overnight sensation that actually took years, the roots of Donald Trump’s alt-right America stretch back to the 1990s, to patriot militias, white supremacists and Tea Party activists. Emboldened by right-wing media, they found a common object of loathing in the first black president. Their unlikely messiah was a controversial property developer and reality TV star, but is Trump really an ideologue? Investigative journalist David Neiwert has tracked US extremists for more than two decades. He talks about the result: "Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Time of Trump".
