(POLITICO) A new video released Thursday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
“The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in,” says a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan at the top of the video, followed by the images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally.
The video’s release comes on the same day that Clinton is scheduled to deliver a speech on the so-called “alt-right” political movement that has formed much of Trump’s base from the beginning of his campaign. In the video, an unidentified voice labels the alt-right as “the sort of dressed-up-in-suits version of the neo-Nazi and white supremacist movements.”
