Trump: Clinton’s ‘Deplorables’ Comment Shows Her ‘Bigotry’
Donald Trump said on Saturday that Hillary Clinton’s “deplorable” comment shows the candidates “bigotry.”
“Isn’t it disgraceful that Hillary Clinton makes the worst mistake of the political season and instead of owning up to this grotesque attack on American voters, she tries to turn it around with a pathetic rehash of the words and insults she used in her failing campaign?” he said in a statement.
The Hill reports:
After facing a wave of controversy for saying half of Trump’s supporters fall into a “basket of deplorables” at a Friday night fundraiser, Clinton said she regrets using that term to describe half of Trump’s backers, while standing by her characterization of many aspects of Trump’s campaign.
“For the first time in a long while, her true feelings came out, showing bigotry and hatred for millions of Americans,” Trump said in his statement.
“She should be ashamed of herself, and this proves beyond doubt that she is unfit and incapable to serve as President of the United States.”
