Trump: If Hillary Doesn't Retract 'Deplorables' Remark, I Don't See How She Can Campaign Further
— Fox News (@FoxNews) September 12, 2016
Donald Trump had some strong words for Hillary Clinton today in response to her controversial "basket of deplorables" remarks.
At the National Guard Association’s 138th General Conference & Exhibition, Trump responded to Clinton's assertion that half of Trump supporters are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophoboic."
"Hillary Clinton still hasn't apologized to those she slandered. In fact, she hasn't backed down at all – she's doubled-down on her campaign [of] conspiracy and contempt," Trump said. "If Hillary Clinton will not retract her comments in full, I don't see how she can credibly campaign any further."
He said that her words weren't offhand or accidental, but planned and prepared.
"It was perhaps the most explicit attack on the American voter ever spoken by a major-party presidential nominee."
