COOPER: You called last night Hillary Clinton a bigot. Previously you called her policies bigoted. You directly called her a bigot.TRUMP: Well, she is a bigot because you look at what's happening to the inner cities, you look at what's happening to African Americans and Hispanics in this country where she talks all of the time. She's talking — look at the vets where she said the vets are being treated essentially just fine, that it's over-exaggerated what's happening to the vets not so long ago.COOPER: But how is she bigoted? Bigoted is having hatred toward a particular group.TRUMP: Well, because she's selling them down the tubes. Because she's not doing anything for those communities. She talks a good game but she doesn't do anything.COOPER: So you're saying she has hatred or dislike of black people?TRUMP: Her policies are bigoted. Her policies are bigoted because she knows they're not going to work.COOPER: Do you think she personally is bigoted?TRUMP: Well, she is. Of course, she is. Her policies. They're her policies, she comes out with the policies and others that believe like she does also. But she came out with policies over the years. This is over the years, a long time. She's totally bigoted. There's no question about that. Look at what …COOPER: But it does imply that she has antipathy, she has hatred toward, in this case I guess it's African Americans ...(CROSSTALK)TRUMP: I think she has been extremely, extremely bad for African Americans. I think she has been extremely bad for Hispanics. You look at what has happened with her policies and the policies of President Obama and others.Look at the poverty. Look at the rise in poverty. Look at the rise in violence.COOPER: But hatred is at the core of that, or dislike of African Americans?TRUMP: Well, or maybe she's lazy. I don't know what it is. All I can tell you is I've been hearing the same stuff from her and others for years and the inner cities today are worse than they ever have been.
