ANDERSON COOPER (HOST): Are you embracing the Alt-Right movement? 

DONALD TRUMP: I don't even know -- nobody even knows what it is. And she didn't know what it was. This is a term that was just given that -- frankly, there's no alt-right or alt-left. All I'm embracing is common sense.

COOPER: Well Steve Bannon did say Breitbart is sort of the voice of the alt-right movement. 

TRUMP: I don't know what Steve said. All I can tell you -- I can only speak for myself.
