Hillary Clinton stuck her foot in her mouth last week when she referred to Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables.” She continued on to call them “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
Now Donald Trump is demanding an apology.
Donald Trump pounced Monday on Hillary Clinton for calling half of his supporters a “basket of deplorables” late last week, launching a new attack ad and arguing on the stump that the remark disqualifies Clinton from the presidency.
The Republican nominee, speaking Monday at the National Guard Association’s annual conference, called on Clinton to apologize for and retract her remarks, arguing that she had “slandered” millions of Americans.
… “The disdain that Hillary Clinton expressed toward millions of Americans disqualifies her from public service. You cannot run for president if you have such contempt in your heart for the American voter,” Trump said. “You can’t lead this nation if you have such a low opinion of its citizens.”
The President of the United States is supposed to represent all Americans, not just those who align with his or her political party. Hillary Clinton is unfit for the presidency for multiple reasons- but perhaps one of the biggest is that she is incapable of treating Americans equally. She doesn’t just disagree with citizens, she ridicules and demonizes them.
The Democratic Party has made a habit of giving themselves preferential treatment under the law. With Hillary in the Oval Office, we could only expect that trend to continue.
