Hillary Clinton is grasping on Donald Trump’s recent comments that he “regrets” some things he’s said during the course of his presidential campaign.
Clinton launched a video mentioning Trump’s most “divisive and insulting” remarks while pointing out that he isn’t stating which ones he regrets.
The online video refers to:
- Recent spat with a Muslim-American Gold Star family whose son was killed in Iraq;
- Saying Arizona Sen. John McCain wasn’t really a war hero because he was captured;
- Calling undocumented Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals;
- Saying Fox News host Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever.”
The video is in response to Trump’s comments at a Thursday rally that he sometimes says “the wrong thing,” in a rare admission. “I’ve never been politically correct,” he said.
“Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues,” Trump told supporters in North Carolina.
The sound bites are spliced with reels of Trump, in multiple settings, refusing to apologize for the comments at the time.
