The alt-right is a right-wing political movement originating in the United States.[1] There are many different type of people in the alt-right. They include white nationalists, antifeminists, manospherians, conservatives, Christians, nationalists and men's rights activists.[2] The group is said to have influenced the 2016 United States presidential election in favor of the winning candidate Donald Trump.[3] The term "Alt-right" is said to have been coined by Richard Spencer, who is a political writer and the current president of the nationalist think-tank National Policy Institute.[4]
