Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had some choice words for Hillary Clinton in response to comments she made at the La Raza conference in Kansas City on Monday.
In a press release issued Tuesday, the blustery billionaire called Clinton a “failing candidate” who is “desperate,” “sad,” and “obviously very nervous.”
Hillary Clinton denounced Trump’s “appalling” comments on illegal immigrants during her speech to the Hispanic group yesterday.
“I have just one word for Mr. Trump: Basta. Enough!” Clinton intoned to great applause.
Trump hit back today with the following statement:
Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said “Mexico is sending”— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.
She is desperate, she is sad, and she is obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled given the absolute accuracy of my statement. She speaks about “my tone” and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice— it’s about being competent.
Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that JEB is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump.
