Trump says Clinton comment a 'grotesque attack'

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Donald Trump says that Hillary Clinton's remarks calling half of his supporters a "basket of deplorables" is "the worst mistake of the political season."

Trump said in a statement Saturday that "her true feelings came out, showing bigotry and hatred for millions of Americans."

Clinton made her comments at an LGBT fundraiser in New York late Friday, then walked them back Saturday, saying in a statement that it was "grossly generalistic, and that's never a good idea."

She specified that she believes the word "deplorable" was reasonable to describe much of Trump's campaign.

Trump is calling Clinton's comments a "grotesque attack" and questioning how she can be president when "she has such contempt and disdain for so many great Americans."
