Trump Responds To Hillary Attacks, ‘She Is Desperate, She Is Sad’

For the last few days, we have been reporting on the controversy surrounding comments Donald Trump made about Mexico during his campaign announcement.

During his speech, the legendary businessman complained about the many criminals that are sneaking into the U.S. from Mexico, calling many of them “rapists.” Outraged, the Spanish-language television channel Univision announced that they would be boycotting Trump by refusing to broadcast his Miss Universe Pageant.

NBC quickly followed suit by ending their relationship with Trump on Monday. Days later, Macy’s also announced that they would be cutting ties with Trump after more than a decade of working with him.

Unfazed, Trump has stood by the comments he made, saying repeatedly that the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico has become problematic. Last week, he filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision for dropping the Miss Universe pageant.

Despite the backlash and ensuing scandal, Trump has continued on with his campaign, and his efforts are paying off. Last week, polls revealed that Trump is currently the frontrunner for the GOP nomination.

These poll results have only intensified the scrutiny of Trump, especially from his fellow candidates. During a speech in Kansas City yesterday, Hillary Clinton slammed Trump for his comments about Mexico:

It was appalling to hear Donald Trump describe immigrants as drug dealers, criminals and rapists,” she said to the National Council of La Raza. “When people and business everywhere rejected his hateful comments, did he apologize? No. He doubled down. It is shameful and no one should stand for it… I have just one word for Mr. Trump… “Basta!” Enough!”

Never one to let someone get away with criticizing him, Trump respond to Hillary’s remarks this morning. Here is his statement, courtesy of The Gateway Pundit:

Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said “Mexico is sending”— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.

She is desperate, she is sad, and she is obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled given the absolute accuracy of my statement. She speaks about “my tone” and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice— it’s about being competent.

Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that JEB is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump.
