Donald Trump has spent the week calling for African-Americans to uproot voter trends, reject "the bigotry" of Hillary Clinton, and vote for him in November. But Wednesday night, Trump escalated the line of attack and labeled Clinton herself a "bigot."Why did Hillary send Chelsea to private schools??
"Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future," Trump said, reading from prepared remarks.
Unlike past lines that have drawn scrutiny, including Monday's comments in Ohio about African Americans not being able to walk the street without being shot, this one was not a Trump ad-lib.
In prior days, the riff - which has become an embedded part of his new appeal to minority voters - was delivered as a variation of asking voters to "reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton" for what Trump called pandering and condescension to communities of color.
