Donald Trump, and his supporters, didn’t take charges of racism lying down.
After Hillary Clinton released an ad that tried to link Trump to the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke, and just before she gave a speech where she accused Trump supporters of being racists and white supremacists, Trump called her out on her act of desperation.

“It’s the oldest play in the Democratic playbook,” he said. “When Democratic policies fail, they are left with only this one tired argument. ‘You’re racist. You’re racist, you’re racist,’ they keep saying it, ‘you’re racist.’ It’s a tired, disgusting argument. And it’s so totally predictable.
“They’re failing so badly. It’s the last refuge of the discredited Democrat politician,” he continued. “They keep going back to the same well but you know what? The people are becoming very smart. They’ve heard it too many times before. The well is dry.”
