On the other hand, the Alt-Right and China don't have a common cause.
Firstly, you're conflating several loosely affiliated right-wing groups. They don't have a common cause with China but they may not necessarily hate them either just because of Trump's protectionist rhetoric.

And I do think it is somewhat stranger to see American right-wingers/fascists working with Islamists because of the 9/11 attacks and how deeply embedded it is in the popular consciousness. I think the recent case showed that we can't expect all organizations to be equally stubborn about working with foreigners if the connection pays.
