Hate in the White House - January

The following is a timeline of instances of extremism in the Trump administration in January.

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.

Once relegated to the fringes, the radical right now has a toehold in the White House.

Groups and individuals referenced in the list below are not associated with hate groups and extremist ideology unless indicated by a hate group profile.
