In a major address on Thursday, Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of embracing the beliefs of the “alt-right,” a political movement whose followers include white nationalists, neo-Nazis and anti-Semites.

“From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties,” Clinton told supporters in Reno, Nevada. “His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”

Pointing to Trump’s retweeting of white supremacists, his initial refusal to disavow the endorsement of former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, and his failure to condemn the “anti-Semitic slurs and death threats coming from his supporters,” Clinton said, “Trump is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters. It’s a disturbing preview of what kind of president he’d be.” READ MORE OF THIS STORY
