In a far-ranging interview with the New York Times the US president-elect was quoted as saying: "I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn."
He said he did not want to "energise" the group, which includes neo-Nazis, white nationalists and anti-Semites.
Alt-right supporters were filmed on Saturday in Washington DC cheering as a speaker shouted: "Hail Trump."
In the video, Richard Spencer, a leader of the "alt-right" movement, told a conference of members that America belongs to white people, whom he described as "children of the sun".
Here are some of his comments:
Son-in-law Jared Kushner - a real estate heir who has no experience of diplomacy - could help forge peace between Israel and Palestinians, he suggested
The US should not be a "nation-builder" in the world, he argued
Republican leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell "love" him again, he asserted
He could run his business and the country both "perfectly" with no conflict of interest
There is some "connectivity" between human activity and climate change
Remember when Nixon made peace with China? Trump is an unlikely person to condemn the Nazis, but apparently he has decided that they are negative energy.
