Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told a rally in Jackson, Mississippi, on August 24 that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is a "bigot," which seemed to shock a supporter standing behind him (video below).
Trump, who recently told black people how horrible their lives are, stated: "Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future. She's going to do nothing for African-Americans. She's going to do nothing for the Hispanics."
In response, Clinton told CNN:
He is taking a hate movement mainstream. He's brought it into his campaign. He is bringing it to our communities and our country. And someone who has questioned the citizenship of the first African-American president, who has courted white supremacists, who has been sued for housing discrimination against communities of color, who has attacked a judge for his Mexican heritage and promised a mass deportation force, is someone who is very much peddling bigotry and prejudice and paranoia.
During his speech, Trump brought on stage Nigel Farage, who has been accused of bigotry in the U.K., notes NBC News.
Farage told the audience that President Obama "could not possibly tell you how you should vote in this election," and then himself told the crowd how to vote: "I will say this. If I was an American citizen, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me. In fact, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if she paid me."
Farage, head of the Ukip Party in the U.K., caused outrage in June when he unveiled a pro-Brexit poster that pictured mostly non-white migrants and refugees with the words: "Breaking point: the EU has failed us all," noted The Guardian.
Some Twitter users compared the poster to Nazi propaganda films of migrants from a 2005 documentary by the BBC, but Farage defended it saying, "This is a photograph -- an accurate, undoctored photograph -- taken on 15 October last year following Angela Merkel’s call in the summer..."
