After releasing a new campaign ad claiming that Donald Trump is the candidate preferred by racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis, Hillary Clinton continues with the attacks targeted at the Republican businessman.
This Tuesday, she launched a new set of accusations, during an event in Reno, Nevada, declaring that “fringe” elements have taken over the GOP, says CNN Politics.
Trump promotes hate!
“From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia,” Clinton said at a campaign rally. “He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party. His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”
And it wasn’t just this, as the former Secretary of State also accused Trump of discriminating in the past as well.
“This is what I want to make clear today: A man with a long history of racial discrimination, who traffics in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far reaches of the Internet, should never run our government or command our military. Ask yourself: If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?,” Clinton added.
These remarks come after the businessman called Hillary Clinton a “bigot” this Wednesday, claiming that she is trying to take “a hate movement mainstream”, something which is outside the norm of U.S. politics, also adding that she “paints decent Americans as racists.”
Trump says Clinton is indirectly attacking his supporters
“She bullies voters who only want a better future and tries to intimidate them out of voting for a change,” Trump said during an event in Manchester. “Hillary Clinton isn’t just attacking me, she’s attacking all of the decent people of all backgrounds — doesn’t matter — of all backgrounds who support this incredible, once in a lifetime movement.”
Everything ended with a tweet, in which Donald Trump said that “Hillary Clinton’s short speech is pandering to the worst instincts in our society. She should be ashamed of herself!”
