WASHINGTON -- Hillary Clinton took a swipe at Donald Trump today, adding her voice of disapproval to the chorus of critics against the Republican presidential candidate's recent remarks about Mexican immigrants.
“I’m very disappointed in those comments," she told CNN. "I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and with the Republican Party for not responding immediately and saying, ‘Enough! Stop it!’”
In Trump's announcement speech, real estate mogul lashed out at immigrants from Mexico, calling them "rapists" and "drug dealers" while saying that "some, I assume, are good people."
Clinton, who is leading in the polls among those seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, then pointed to the views of other Republican nominees on immigration.
"They are on a spectrum of hostility, which I think is regrettable in a nation of immigrants like ours," she said. "We shouldn’t be stopping people from having the opportunity to be fully integrated legally within our country. It’s good for us."
