Hillary Accuses Trump of ‘Playing Coy With White Supremacists’

Monday at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual policy conference, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, referring to him as a “bully,” accused Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of “encouraging violence” and “playing coy with white supremacists.”

Clinton said, “Now, in a democracy we’re going to have differences. But what Americans are hearing on the campaign trail this year is something else entirely. Encouraging violence, playing coy with white supremacists, calling for 12 million immigrants to be rounded up and deported, demanding we turn away refugees because of their religion and proposing a ban on all Muslims entering the United States. Now, we’ve had dark chapters in our history before. We remember the nearly 1,000 Jews aboard the St. Louis who were refused entry in 1939 and sent back to Europe. but America should be better than this. And I believe it’s our responsibility as citizens to say so. If you see bigotry, oppose it. If you see violence, condemn it. If you see a bully, stand up to him.”
