Matthew Heimbach is leader of the White Nationalist Traditional Workers Party.
Matthew Heimbach, co-founder of the white supremacist Traditional Workers Party, attended the August 2017 Unte the Right rally and is a big fan of Putin.
"I really believe that Russia is the leader of the free world right now," he recently told Business Insider. "Putin is supporting nationalists around the world and building an anti-globalist alliance, while promoting traditional values and self-determination."
In 2015, he led a rally at which Russian and Confederate flags were flown alongside each other.

Heimbach, was described by the far left Southern Poverty Law Center as the “face of a new generation of white nationalists”, has made several trips to Europe to meet the leaders of far-right parties, and at the official launch of the Traditional Workers Party in 2015 Heimbach hosted a Skyped-in congratulatory speech from Alexander Dugin.
The following year he planned his first trip to Russia for the far-right World National Conservative Movement conference, which was ultimately postponed.
Heimbach specifically cited the USSR's dissolution as his vision for the US.
