Trump: Hillary's 'Basket of Deplorables' Comment Is Biggest Mistake of 2016
Hillary Clinton is under fire for remarking that half of Donald Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables.”
At a fundraising event in New York on Friday, the Democratic nominee labeled many Trump supporters as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophoboic.”
She has since issued an apology for her "grossly generalistic" comments, but many believe this could have negative consequences for her campaign, including Trump himself.
Trump said that when he first heard about the remarks, he didn't believe that Clinton actually made them.
"I think this is the biggest mistake of the political season. I really do," Trump said. "When I saw this it its full form and I saw the anger with which she said - the way she spoke - I think it's the single biggest mistake of the political season."
He noted that comparisons have been drawn to Mitt Romney's infamous "47 percent" moment, but Clinton's “basket of deplorables" comment is actually much worse.
Steve Doocy pointed out that Clinton has tried to walk the remark back by claiming she regrets saying that applies to "half" of Trump supporters.
The Republican nominee said the precise percentage isn't important because he and Clinton are running to be president of all Americans.
"You're not president of 50 percent or 75 percent, you're president of all the people," Trump said. "You have to be president of everybody."
