Hillary Clinton Visits Chicago, Says Trump 'Plays Coy With White Supremacists'
Presumptive democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump "plays coy with white supremacists" at a Monday campaign stop in Chicago, according to the Sun-Times. Clinton also called the presumptive Republican presidential nominee out for making fun of the disabled, supporting increased global access to nuclear weapons, and supporting a ban on Muslim immigration that made even Trump Tower residents feel weird.
(Clinton's white supremacist comment is an allusion to Trump's refusal to disavow support from KKK members, including KKK Grand Dragon David Duke.)
During her appearance at the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s annual women’s luncheon in Bronzeville, Clinton also decried gun violence in Chicago and nationwide, calling it a "civil rights issue," according to the Sun-Times. In the process, she praised local politicians for the gun-control sit-in in the House of Representatives last week.
Her two primary topics intersected, too—she also took Trump to task for advocating against no-gun zones around schools. This is an especially timely point in Chicago, where a Chicago Public Schools employee was fatally shot outside an elementary school less than two weeks ago.
Clinton will continue campaigning in Chicago throughout Monday. During the luncheon, in fact, she directly addressed voters with doubts about her candidacy. She acknowledged she had made mistakes in her career, but reassured them, "No one, no one will fight harder for you and your families than I will. You can count on that.”
