Clinton regrets comments about Trump supporters
Hillary Clinton says she regrets describing Donald Trump supporters as a "basket of deplorables."
In a statement Saturday, Clinton said that, "many of Trump’s supporters are hard-working Americans who just don’t feel like the economy or our political system are working for them."
She said she was "grossly generalistic" in her remarks at the LGBT fundraiser in New York Friday and, she added, "that’s never a good idea."
But she said she regrets only half of her statement, emphasizing that it is "really deplorable" that Trump is affiliated with people from the right-winged "alt-right movement," and that "David Duke and other white supremacists see him as a champion of their values."
