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.”
