White Nationalists gathered on Saturday to celebrate the Donald Trump presidency as a victory for white Americans.
Spectators lifted their arms in the Nazi salute as National Policy Institute president Richard Spencer declared “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”
His closing speech for the annual conference was filmed and edited in a video on YouTube via The Atlantic.
“America was until this past generation a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity,” Spencer told the audience. “It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”
The audience of over 200 appeared to be entirely white and composed of mostly men.
The National Police Institute claims they are “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world.”
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum — blocks away from the conference — released an open letter on Monday condemning the NPI conference's rhetoric.
"The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is deeply alarmed at the hateful rhetoric at a conference of white nationalists held on November 19 at the Ronald Reagan Building just blocks from the Museum," the letter reads. "The Holocaust did not begin with killing; it began with words."
