Hillary Clinton Says She Is “Very Disappointed” in Donald Trump


In a new interview with CNN, Hillary Clinton weighed in on the continuing controversy over Donald Trump’s presidential announcement speech in which he characterized Mexican immigrants crossing the border as criminals and  “rapists.”

“I am very disappointed in those comments,” Clinton said. “I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and the Republican party for not responding immediately and saying ‘enough stop it.'”

Trump’s remarks have sparked national outrage over their racist descriptions, even prompting several businesses and television networks long associated with the real estate mogul to sever business ties with him. While most of the GOP presidential field have distanced themselves from Trump’s comments, some including Sen. Ted Cruz have applauded him “on the need to address illegal immigration.”

Trump has donated to Clinton’s past campaigns on a number of occasions. He also contributed at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

 

 

The full interview will air on the cable news network Tuesday evening.
