Trump: Clinton’s ‘Alt-Right’ accusation is ‘disgusting’

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

STORY: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump responded on Thursday (August 25) to reports that his rival Hillary Clinton was going to try to present him to voters as a candidate who appeals to the political far right.

Clinton was set to appear later in the day in Nevada, a state with a heavy Hispanic population, with a speech that a top aide said would criticize Trump’s “divisive and dystopian vision.”

Aides said Clinton will link Trump’s statements about immigration and religion to the rise of a political fringe movement in the U.S. known as the “alternative right,” which opposes multiculturalism and immigration.

Trump told his supporters at a campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire that he had not seen the statement Clinton was expected to make but that the tactic was “tired and disgusting”

The two candidates have been sparring over who would make a better president for the country’s minorities, with each accusing the other of posing a threat to the interests of blacks and Latinos.

Trump has polled poorly with minorities but lately has tried to broaden his appeal to them, hinting at a softening of his hard-line position on immigration. In an appearance in Jackson, Mississippi, on Wednesday he had called Clinton a “bigot” who would do nothing to help blacks.

Trump has been heavily criticized by minorities for his proposals on immigration, which include deporting millions of undocumented foreigners, building a wall along the Mexican border, and suspending Muslim immigration to shore up national security. But recently he has suggested he could soften those positions.

The softening comes as Trump hopes to erode some of Clinton’s strong support with Hispanic and black voters, a central part of his campaign message for the past two weeks.
