Election HQ Hillary Goes Off on Trump: 'Seems He Wants to Make America Hate Again'
Hillary Clinton went off on Donald Trump in a speech this afternoon in Reno, Nevada, accusing him of legitimizing the "fringe" alt-right wing of the conservative movement.
"He says he wants to make America great again but more and more, it seems as though his real message is make America hate again," said Clinton.
The speech came hours after Clinton released a campaign ad that features the KKK, white supremacists and David Duke.
"There's a reason the most hateful fringe of the right wing is supporting Donald Trump," Clinton wrote in the tweet.
Trump then hit back at Clinton in New Hampshire, arguing that she is branding him and his supporters as racist because her campaign is failing.
In her speech, Clinton highlighted Trump's hiring of Breitbart's Steve Bannon as his campaign CEO, arguing that his campaign has merged with the "alt-right."
She called it a "fringe element that has effectively taken over the Republican Party" amid a wave of "hardline right-wing nationalism around the world."
Clinton said the alt-right promotes a "racist ideology" that is anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-women and is not "Republicanism as we have known it."
She argued that Trump is, at the same time, promoting a pro-Kremlin foreign policy and that "it all adds up to something we've never seen before."
"There's always been a paranoid fringe in our politics, a lot of it rising from racial resentment. But it's never had the nominee of a major party stoking it, encouraging it and giving it a national megaphone until now," she said.
