Hillary Clinton said Friday that "half" of Donald Trump's supporters could be grouped in "the basket of deplorables" at a fundraising event in New York City.Hillary sees an enemy.
"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the 'basket of deplorables'. Right?" Clinton said to applause and laughter from the crowd of supporters at an LGBT for Hillary fundraiser where Barbra Streisand performed. "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic - you name it."
"And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up," she added.
Clinton then noted, as she has several times in the past, that Trump has "given voice" to white supremacist and anti-Semitic voices on the Internet.
