Washington: Donald Trump’s rhetoric on the campaign trail grew even darker on Monday after a new poll was released showing him trailing Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Criticizing Vermont senator Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of Clinton, Trump pulled no punches.

“He made a deal with the devil. She’s the devil,” Trump said of Clinton at an evening rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

A CNN poll released Monday showed Clinton with a 52% to 43% lead over Trump in an head-to-head match-up taken after the Republican and Democratic conventions.
