The Hillary Clinton campaign immediately seized on Trump’s claim that he regrets using painful words during his campaign to ask for a specific list of insults that Trump regrets.
In a statement, HFA Deputy Communications Director Christina Reynolds said, “Donald Trump literally started his campaign by insulting people. He has continued to do so through each of the 428 days from then until now, without shame or regret. We learned tonight that his speechwriter and teleprompter knows he has much for which he should apologize. But that apology tonight is simply a well-written phrase until he tells us which of his many offensive, bullying and divisive comments he regrets—and changes his tune altogether.”
As a helpful resource to Trump, the Clinton campaign provided this list of 250 insults that he has spoken during the campaign.
Trump claimed that he regretted using “painful words” during his campaign, but the Republican nominee never mentioned anything specific that he said. As the Clinton campaign pointed out, Trump has been insulting people without regret for more than a year.
Donald Trump has opened the door to a discussion of his insults, and Hillary Clinton just walked right in and made herself at home.
