"Don't be fooled" by Trump's efforts to rebrand, she told voters Thursday, saying the United States faced a "moment of reckoning". He claims that the Democrats have taken minority voters' support for granted. It also shows headlines about a racial discrimination lawsuit the NY real estate mogul faced in the 1970s.
A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll for the week beginning August 15 found Clinton beating Trump among Hispanic voters by 15 percentage points, and by 57 percentage points among black voters. They were quickly escorted out by security as they railed against Trump for "trying to pander to black and Latino leaders". We've been doing incredible, far, far greater. than anyone understands.
"And if there were no evidence - and I mean people can say whatever they want, I understand that - but if there were no evidence that there was any conflict, I would say look, I appreciate the work that they did to help 11-and-a-half million people around the world get more affordable medicines; and I appreciate the work that was done to help more people make a living and get a job and to help American kids battle obesity and get better food".
"People who want their laws enforced and respected and who want their borders secured are not racists", Trump said. "The country has some very, very serious problems", he said.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Thursday's speech "proved to the American public what we have known all along - Hillary Clinton has no hope, no vision and no ideas for the future of our country".
Clinton attacks came during a hard week for her campaign, as the release of new emails from her time as secretary of state revived criticism of her decision to use a private address and server rather than a government one.
On Tuesday, an Associated Press report found at least 85 people from private interests who met with or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to the Clinton foundation.
"She doesn't have one single proposal that hasn't been tried and failed", he said.
Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer told MSNBC Clinton was only talking about Trump and race this week to deflect attention from that controversy.
But Clinton has always shied from making judgements on what those comments say about Trump himself, telling reporters she would "let others comment on his character and his motivation and his behavior". This June, Trump accused a USA federal judge of being biased against him because of his Mexican heritage, which prompted Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan - who endorsed Trump - to accuse Trump of voicing "the textbook definition of a racist comment".
Clinton, speaking on CNN, dismissed Trump's shifting language as "a desperate effort to try to land somewhere that isn't as devastating to his campaign as his comments and his positions have been up until now". Those include describing some Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists, suggesting a judge could not be fair because of his Mexican-American heritage, and proposing a temporary ban on Muslim immigration to combat terrorism.
Calling it "a exhausted, disgusting argument", he said it was Clinton who was being a "racist" by viewing minorities merely as a source of votes while doing nothing for them.
"He's learned painfully, belatedly, that what stirs up a large part of the Republican primary electorate is not what wins general elections", said John Rowe, a GOP donor and former CEO of Exelon, who's planning to vote for libertarian Gary Johnson.
There were signs that Trump risked angering hard-core supporters who helped him win the nomination. "And Clinton has a lot of deep roots among black politicians".
On Thursday, he denied he would loosen his proposed immigration restrictions.
