Hillary: Trump, Cruz Have Burst Open ‘Ugly Currents’ of Bigotry


Wednesday in New York at the National Action Network Convention, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)  have “burst into the open” the “ugly currents that lurk just below the surface of our politics.”

Clinton said, “When the front-runner for the Republican nomination was asked in a national television interview to disavow David Duke and other white supremacists supporting his campaign, he played coy. This is the same Donald Trump who led the insidious birther movement to de-legitimize President Obama.  He has called Mexican immigrants rapists and murders. He wants to ban all Muslims from entering the United States. And the list goes on. And not to be outdone by his primary rival, Ted Cruz would treat Muslim Americans like criminals and religiously profile their neighborhoods. So, ugly currents that lurk just below the surface of our politics have burst into the open, and everyone sees this bigotry for what it is.”
