“Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” Trump said as he appealed to African-American voters.
Clinton later responded to Trump’s remarks in an phone interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “Oh, Anderson, it reminds me of that great saying that Maya Angelou had, that when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time,” she said. “And Donald Trump has shown us who he is. And we ought to believe him. He is taking a hate movement mainstream.”
Trump was joined on stage by Nigel Farage, one of the leaders of the “Brexit” movement.
Farage spoke to the crowd assembled about the parallels between this election and the British referendum to leave the European Union, while Trump called for the U.S. to “re-declare our independence.”
