Alex Jones, the online radio host and conspiracy theorist who has claimed the Sandy massacre was faked, has said Donald Trump telephoned to thank him for his help in getting him elected.

In a clip posted on his website over there weekend, Mr Jones said: “He said, ‘Listen Alex, I just talked to the kings and the queens of the world. I want to thank you, your audience.”

He said the incoming president promised to come on his programme again in the next few weeks. He celebrated that Mr Trump had triumphed over “hoaxes” such as Obamacare, the New York Times reported.

Mr Jones was quick to throw his support behind Mr Trump

During the presidential election campaign, The Independent reported how it appeared Mr Trump was using talking points that very closely mirrored some of the comments of Mr Jones, a so-called alt-right commentator whose believes Ms Clinton is a genuine avatar of satan.

Mr Jones, whose show is broadcast from Austin, Texas, was an early supporter of Mr Trump, who appeared on his programme during the end of the primaries.
