She cited Trump's decision to bring on Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his new campaign chief as a sign Trump is strengthening his ties to the alternative right movement. During Bannon's tenure, Breitbart News increased its coverage of alt-right issues, and Bannon told the magazine Mother Jones during the Republican National Convention last month that the website was "the platform for the alt-right". The term "alt-right" is used to describe a faction of political conservatives that have used the Internet in recent months to advance views of white supremacism, anti-Semitism and nativism. "The de facto merger between Breitbart and the Trump campaign represents a landmark achievement for this group, a fringe element that has effectively taken over the Republican Party," Clinton said. She also criticized Trump's decision to have Nigel Farage campaign for him in Mississippi on Wednesday. Clinton said Farage, a key figure in the successful campaign to get Britain out of the European Union, had "stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum."
