Donald Trump is defending a gesture he makes at his rallies at the request of supporters in which he raises his right hand that has been compared by some to the Nazi salute.

Speaking to US broadcaster NBC's Today programme, Mr Trump called the accusations "ridiculous" and said his supporters call on him to make a gesture as if he is swearing in for the presidency.

"Until this call, I didn't know it was a problem," Mr Trump said. "Sometimes we'll do it for fun."
