– Trump on offensive –
Trump, who himself won a slew of primary races, signaled Tuesday he plans to go on the offensive against Hillary and Bill Clinton.
“The Clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves,” he told supporters at his golf property in New York state.
“They’ve made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts.”
“I am going to give a major speech on probably Monday of next week and we’re going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons,” he said.
“I think you’re going to find it very informative and very very interesting.”
Clinton remains mired in scandal about her use of a private email server as secretary of state and perceptions of dishonesty – leaving her with unpopularity ratings surpassed only by the controversial Trump.
The millionaire has faltered badly since he won the Republican nomination, with violence-marred rallies, run-ins with the press and a widely condemned racial attack on a federal judge who is investigating his now-defunct Trump University.
Leaders of Trump’s own Republican Party described that as textbook racism.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, clearly aware the debacle could do lasting damage to Republican election hopes, called Trump’s “racist” attacks “absolutely unacceptable.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urged the presumptive Republican nominee to “quit attacking… various minority groups in the country and get on message.”
