Trump Rips Clinton For “Deplorable” Comments
Donald Trump is ripping Hillary Clinton for describing some of his supporters as “deplorable.” Speaking at a National Guard Association convention in Baltimore, Trump accused Clinton of attacking, slandering and demeaning many good, hard-working, patriotic Americans. He said Clinton spoke with hatred and derision. At a recent fundraiser, Clinton argued that half of Trump’s supporters are in a “basket of deplorables.” Trump said Clinton hasn’t apologized and has doubled-down on her remarks. He suggested that she will lose credibility as a presidential nominee if she does not apologize.
Trump Visits New DC Hotel, Protestors Gather
Donald Trump is opening a residence on Pennsylvania Avenue. The new Trump International Hotel DC begins serving guests today with a “soft open.” The Republican presidential candidate was on hand to commemorate the event, and dozens of protestors were there to meet Mr. Trump from across the street. Aside from the demonstrations, it’ll be a quiet first few weeks until next month’s grand-opening celebration. The hotel is in the historic Old Post Office Pavilion, located at eleven-hundred Pennsylvania Avenue – just five blocks from the White House.
