Donald Trump Accuses Hillary Clinton Of Having 'Tremendous Hate In Her Heart'


Donald Trump on Sunday accused Hillary Clinton of having “tremendous hate in her heart” after she called some of his supporters deplorable.

“We have a divided nation because people like her, and believe me, she has tremendous hate in her heart. And when she said deplorables, she meant it. And when she said irredeemable, they’re irredeemable,” Trump said.

There were audible gasps in the debate hall when Trump made the comment.

Clinton apologized last month after she said half of Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables.” She also said some of the supporters were irredeemable.

“Within hours I said I was sorry. I said that because my argument is not with his supporters, it’s with him and the hateful, divisive campaign he has run,” Clinton said during the debate Sunday.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
