Clinton Ties Trump to KKK Supporters in New Video

Later on Thursday, Clinton will attack Trump’s ties to the “alt-right” movement in a speech.


Ahead of a Thursday speech in which Hillary Clinton is expected to attack Donald Trump’s ties to the “alt-right” movement, her campaign dropped a video tying Trump to his most vocally racist supporters, including members of the Ku Klux Klan.

The video opens with a white-hooded KKK member saying in an interview that “the reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in.” The video then cycles through clips of white supremacists explaining their fandom for Trump, and pivots to footage of Trump unable to answer a question on whether he’d disavow the support of former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke.
