The Electronic Intifada has uncovered evidence directly tying a senior 
adviser to President Donald Trump to neo-Nazi white supremacist Richard 

Spencer, the figurehead of the so-called “alt-right,” was notoriously 
caught on video after the November election bellowing “Hail Trump, hail 
our people, hail victory!” as his supporters gave Nazi-style salutes.

An email obtained by The Electronic Intifada confirms that Stephen 
Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, worked directly with Spencer when the 
pair were at Duke University a decade ago.

In October, Spencer told Mother Jones magazine that he had worked with 
Miller to organize a debate on immigration sponsored by the Duke 
Conservative Union.

Miller sought to undercut the story at the time, asserting that 
Spencer’s “claims are 100 percent false.”

But Peter Laufer, now a senior professor of journalism at the University 
of Oregon, sent The Electronic Intifada a 26 March 2007 email from 
Spencer that corroborates Spencer’s personal connection to Miller.
