Following the Tequila incident, a shocking video has emerged of a National Policy Institute meeting in Washington, showing some in attendance giving Nazi-style salutes.

The event for the National Policy Institute, which occurred Saturday inside the Ronald Reagan Building, saw many, including leader Richard Spencer, say: “Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!”

Spencer has popularized the recent term “alt-right” and described in the past his dream of “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans.”

He has also called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”

The Trump transition team condemned the meeting, saying in a statement: “President-elect Trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind and he was elected because he will be a leader for every American."
