Yamich Alcindor: A White Nationalist Visited the W.H. the Same Day I Asked About White Nationalism

‘ ...and was tweeting about it yesterday on the same day that I was asking about the question about white nationalism’

EXCERPT:

ALCINDOR: "No, there was not a caravan that was invading the United States. I will say I interviewed some Trump supporters who were in a gated retirement community in south Florida who were scared this caravan was going to come and bring all sorts of diseases to them. These are interviews I did on camera where people were really, really fearful. And the President essentially feels as though he was validated running that campaign of fear because Republicans were able to keep control of the Senate and even gain a couple of seats. That’s why I posed that question to the President, which is, 'Are you worried that you're emboldening white nationalists?' And what we know now is that a white nationalist visited the White House and was tweeting about it yesterday on the same day that I was asking about the question about white nationalism."
