Clinton to accuse Trump of embracing nativist political movement

Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton holds a rally at West Philadelphia High School in Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaBy Amanda Becker PALO ALTO, California (Reuters) – Democrat Hillary Clinton will accuse Donald Trump of embracing a brand of U.S. political conservatism associated with white nationalism and nativism when she makes a Nevada campaign stop on Thursday. Aides said Clinton will link Trump’s statements about immigration and religion to the rise of a political fringe movement in the U.S. known as the “alternative right”, which opposes multiculturalism and immigration. Clinton’s speech is an effort to keep attention focused on what a top aide called Trump’s “divisive and dystopian vision” as he tries to reverse his slumping position in opinion polls in key battleground states before the Nov. 8 presidential election.
