Hate in the White House: January 2019

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.
