But in a speech in Reno, Nevada, yesterday, Clinton was on the attack. She came out strongly against Donald Trump, specifically calling out the connections between his campaign and the "alt-right," a mostly online movement closely aligned with white nationalism.

“There's always been a paranoid fringe in our politics, a lot of it arising from racial resentment, but it’s never had the nominee of a major party stoking it, encouraging it ,and giving it a national megaphone — until now,” Clinton said.
