Hillary Clinton is revving up her attacks on Donald Trump as well as his supporters.
CLINTON: You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the “Basket of Deplorables.” Right? They’re racist sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic. You name it.

Sheriff David Clarke argued playing the race card is the only way the Clintons appeal to the black community.
CLARKE: Well, she’s relying on that because it’s worked in the past. But look, black people are as diverse as any other demographic in the United States and they’re beginning to open their eyes to this monolithic voting for Democrats. So, she’s a one-trick pony, it’s the only thing she can play. The one word that comes to mind when I think of her is ‘sinister.’ Donald Trump however, he made the appeal and that’s something that hasn’t happened in the past in the fashion that he did. He went down and talked to black people with respect and he understands that we can think our way through this thing. And he made it clear that, you know, give them a chance, take a look around the American ghetto, things have not gotten better voting for Democrats. Look, she’ll get a high number of blacks because there will be a lag time between his message and the time it takes effect, but she’s not going to draw out the numbers. Think volume, not percentage. She will not get the volume of black voters that Barack Obama or even her husband did and that’s why she’s in trouble.
