In Washington, D.C., hundreds of people protested outside of a white nationalist conference in which white supremacists and other members of the "alt-right" movement gathered to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory. The gathering was held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Inside, white supremacist Richard Spencer, a leader of the alt-right movement, recited Nazi propaganda in original German and said, "America was, until this last generation, a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity." Multiple people performed the Nazi salute after his speech and chanted "Heil the people! Heil victory!" When asked by The New York Times about Donald Trump, Spencer said, "I do think we have a psychic connection, or you can say a deeper connection, with Donald Trump in a way that we simply do not have with most Republicans."
