Donald Trump held nothing back on Thursday when he used his speech in New Hampshire to tear into Hillary Clinton over her plans to attack him for being a racist.
The former Secretary of State is giving a speech today, and it will be themed on how Trump’s campaign has become incredibly far-right, and has essentially mainstreamed fringe political views. Trump called Clinton a “bigot” last night for viewing American minorities as nothing more than free votes, and today, he ripped her for painting him and his supporters as blatant racists.
“She bullies voters, who only want a better future, and tries to intimidate them out of voting for change,” Trump said. “When Democratic policies fail, they are left with only this one tired argument. You’re racist, you’re racist, you’re racist. They keep saying it…And it’s so totally predictable.”

Trump’s remarks also come as retaliation for Clinton’s new campaign ad, in which she attacked him by highlighting his support from Neo-Nazis, the KKK, and white nationalists. Clinton also used the ad to highlight Trump’s hiring of Stephen Bannon, the chief of Breitbart.com and a major player in the alt-right political sphere.
