Trump ad shows Clinton making racist comment, calling blacks super-predators

On Friday, GOP nominee Donald Trump posted a new ad on his Facebook page in which he focused on a racist 1996 statement made by then First Lady Hillary Clinton.  The ad is no doubt in response to Clinton’s speech this week conjuring up a racist global alt-right conspiracy out to get her.

Trump’s ad included her 20-year-old comments, which stand in stark contrast to her own remarks on Thursday.

“They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators,” she said of young blacks at the time while discussing high crime rates during her husband’s administration.  “No conscience, no empathy, we can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”

She was also called out on that statement by Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders during a debate and she was confronted by activists in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Washington Times reported:

Black voters are the linchpin of Hillary Clinton’s strategy for winning the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary, and as a result, her campaign has put racial justice issues at the forefront of her agenda. But at an event on Wednesday night, Clinton was vocally confronted by an activist questioning her past support for policies that had a disproportionately negative effect on African Americans.

Ashley Williams, a 23-year-old activist from Charlotte, interrupted Clinton during a private fundraiser in Charleston on Wednesday night. Williams stood and demanded an apology from Clinton for the high incarceration rate for black Americans, and confronted her with the words of a speech Clinton delivered 20 years ago voicing support for the now-debunked theory of “super-predators.”

Here’s the ad:

As of this writing, the ad has been viewed over 865,000 times and shared nearly 16,000 times.

The Clintons, Trump wrote, “are the real predators…”

“‘Bring them to heel’ Hillary expresses her true feelings about African Americans,” one person wrote, echoing the sentiments of many others.

The Hill added:
Trump’s focus on the term Friday comes as he and Clinton ratchet up their rhetoric on each other on the issue of race. Clinton accused Trump, the GOP nominee, in a speech Thursday of trying to bring “hate groups mainstream,” while Trump repeatedly called Clinton a “bigot.”

Trump’s campaign released another video Thursday showing Clinton facing criticism on race issues during her 2008 campaign against President Obama. Obama has endorsed Clinton’s current White House bid and campaigned with her.
