Hate in the White House

The radical right — long relegated to the fringes — now has a toehold in the White House.

President Trump has opened the White House doors to extremism, not only consulting with hate groups on policies that erode our country’s civil rights protections but enabling the infiltration of extremist ideas into the administration’s rhetoric and agenda.

Every month we track incidents that illustrate the hate and extremism permeating the Trump administration. They include tweets, speeches, policy actions, legal developments and other activities involving Trump, White House advisers, Cabinet members and federal agencies.
