President-elect Donald Trump's disavowal of Richard Spencer and his far-right thinktank the National Policy Institute, a day after video of Spencer's supporters giving the Nazi salute at an event in Washington DC surfaced, has dismayed some of his supporters on the "alt-right".

"This constant virtue signaling needs to finally end, otherwise our civilization will simply collapse," a commenter wrote underneath the article of Trump's disavowal on rightwing news site Breitbart.

People in the myriad "alt-right" communities that have flourished online in recent years are also expressing their displeasure that Trump appears to have abandoned the most extreme of his policies – at least for now – such as building a wall and prosecuting Hillary Clinton.
