Donald Trump's candidacy has invigorated a new generation of the far right and white nationalists. In May, it was revealed that a Trump delegate from California was a white nationalist leader, which caused the Trump campaign to quickly drop him as a delegate.

But apparently, that was not the only Trump delegate who is also an open white nationalist. VICE News met up with one of the faces of this new movement, Matt Heimbech, in Cleveland, Ohio during the Republican National Convention.

Not only is Heimbech himself a Trump supporter, he says that he personally knows several other members of his group who are Trump delegates and currently on the convention floor.
