Hillary Clinton Criticized After Saying Trump Voters Supported a 'Backwards' Agenda

Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday picked injuries in her hand during her visit to Rajasthan's Jodhpur and had to cancel some of her programmes as a result, officials said.

Clinton also had trouble while walking onto an airplane to Yemen in 2011, tripping and falling when she got to the top of the stairs.

Clinton was critical of the reality campaign tactics of her opponent and questioned whether she should have provided more entertainment to voters who responded to Trump's brash style.

Clinton's accusation that Trump represents voters who oppose "black people getting rights" also provides a marked contrast with the unemployment rate for African-Americans, which at 6.8 percent in December was the lowest it has ever been since the U.S. Census Bureau began measuring it. "And his whole campaign, 'Make America Great Again, ' was looking backwards".

"You didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs", Clinton said.

"The most qualified candidate ever folks".

Clinton said there is "the phenomenon of disappointment" about economic outcomes, particularly after the 2008 financial crisis, one of three main areas where she said she sees Americans' fears play out. A Washington Post-ABC News poll after her "deplorables" comments found that more than two-thirds of Americans felt it was unfair "to describe a large portion of Trump's supporters as prejudiced against women and minorities".

Clinton was on a private trip to India this week, which saw her give several speeches on both the USA election and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's policies in the Asian nation. "It has always been under the Republican administration that relations with India have deepened on multiple fronts", he alleged. "Does America deserve Donald Trump?" asked the moderator. "President Trump and his administration has highlighted deepening partnership with India and its growings role in the Indo-Pacific region", Ahluwalia said.
