Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is looking to take down presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump by using the words of his fellow Republicans against him (video below).

Trump is well known as a polarizing figure – some say he is racist, bigoted and xenophobic, while others say he speaks his mind and does not fret over being politically correct. But either way, it has made him some enemies, and the latest Clinton ad shows a montage of their insults to discredit his words, Business Insider reports.

"I am a unifier," Trump says in a clip of the speech that begins the video. "We're going to be a unified party."

But the video questions that. Prominent politicians, including many former candidates, speak out against him. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida calls Trump a "con artist," former Republican nominee Mitt Romney calls him a "phony," and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas calls Trump "a narcissist at a level I don't think this country has ever seen."

"This is an individual who mocked a disabled reporter, who attributed a reporter's questions to her menstrual cycle," Romney says.

Others call Trump "the know-nothing candidate," a "bully" and "the most vulgar person ever to aspire to the presidency."

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina adds that Trump is a "race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot," while Romney says that Trump's "domestic policies would lead to recession" and "his foreign policies would make America and the world less safe."

But there is one thing they can all agree on.

"I bring people together," Trump says in the video.

Many other Republicans have spoken out against Trump and even started a viral #NeverTrump movement, while prominent politicians have questioned Trump's motives for the presidency, saying that he presents a lack of ideas.

"What does Trump really believe?" asked Douglas Holtz-Eakin, George W. Bush's former chief economist on the Council of Economic Advisors, according to Fortune. "I'm worried that he copyrighted his campaign slogan in December of 2012, but has done nothing to really understand the issues facing the nation."
