Wink, wink! Clinton dog whistles to racists

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s newest campaign tactic is the most disgusting yet.
It appears Clinton is giving a ‘wink’ to voters all over the country — and warning that anyone who is against her is a racist.
Clinton warns that Trump has unleashed a ‘radical fringe’ in America, including anti-Semites and white supremacist, dubbing the billionaire businessman’s campaign as one that will “make America hate again.”
By embracing such an outrageous tactic, Clinton is only proving one thing: There’s only one candidate that’s thriving through racial tensions, and it’s not her opponent Donald Trump.
Trump rejected Clinton’s allegations, defending his hard-line approach to immigration while trying to make the case to minority voters that Democrats have abandoned them.

In a tweet shortly after Clinton wrapped up her speech in the swing state of Nevada, Trump said she “is pandering to the worst instincts in our society. She should be ashamed of herself!”
Trump tried to get ahead of the Democratic nominee, addressing a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire just minutes before Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton is going to try to accuse this campaign, and the millions of decent Americans who support this campaign, of being racists,” Trump predicted.
“To Hillary Clinton, and to her donors and advisers, pushing her to spread her smears and her lies about decent people, I have three words,” he said. “I want you to hear these words, and remember these words: Shame on you.”

Later, on Twitter, Trump released an incredible video —
Trump, who also met Thursday in New York with members of a new Republican Party initiative meant to train young — and largely minority — volunteers, has been working to win over blacks and Latinos and has been claiming that the Democrats have taken minority voters’ support for granted. At rallies over the past week, the Republican presidential nominee cast Democratic policies as harmful to communities of color, and in Mississippi on Wednesday he went so far as to label Clinton “a bigot.”
“They’ve been very disrespectful, as far as I’m concerned, to the African-American population in this country,” Trump said.
