Trump bashes “crooked Hillary”
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday took aim at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, in a likely harbinger of the general election to come. Speaking at a campaign rally in Nebraska, he took a line from Democratic challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders, saying Clinton showed bad judgment and dishonesty in the way she handled her email account as Secretary of State, calling her “crooked Hillary.”
He also urged supporters in Nebraska to ignore the fact that he’s the Republican party’s only candidate left in the race and be sure to vote on Tuesday, calling on supporters to give him more influence at the party’s convention in July.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination, posted on Facebook that he will not vote for Trump – one of the heaviest slights yet against the New York real estate mogul by a senior Republican.
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, who made an unsuccessful bid for president, joined a growing list of Republicans who are refusing to support Trump and he announced on Friday he will also skip the Republican convention in July. Mitt Romney, who won the Republican nomination in 2012, is also refusing to support Trump.
