(Clive, IA) Donald Trump making his fourth stop in Iowa since securing the Republican nomination blasted Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” remarks made at a fundraiser last week.

He said to an audience of about 1600 at a rally in Clive that the same arrogance that was behind the “deplorables” comment fuels the email and pay to play scandals during her tenure as Secretary of State.

Watch below:

Transcript:

While my opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable, I call you hard working American patriots who love your country and want a better future for all of our people. Her comments displayed the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led her to violate federal law as secretary of state, hide and delete her emails – I think 33,000 e-mails and that’s just one batch; that’s a lot of wedding talk, it’s a lot of wedding talk – put classified information in the reach of our enemies, lied to Congress, and sell government favors and access through the Clinton Foundation.

It’s this attitude of arrogance that explains why Hillary Clinton made 13 phones disappear, including with a hammer, so the FBI could not see them and why she bleached her emails after a congressional subpoena – that’s after the subpoena came; this isn’t before, that’s after the subpoena came. Now the people who destroyed the emails are all pleading the Fifth Amendment in front of Congress today. Have you seen what is going on in front of Congress? ‘Fifth Amendment, Fifth Amendment, Fifth Amendment.’ Horrible, horrible. And will anything happen? That’s going to be the question, we’ll find out.

Anyone watching today’s hearing in Congress knows that Hillary Clinton’s actions are far more corrupt than we ever imagined – this happened today. This is far bigger and a far bigger scandal than Watergate ever was. But with Watergate, we had a Justice Department that went after the people. Here’s something that just – nobody’s ever seen anything like this, folks. What we’re witnessing is a first. We’ve never, ever seen anything like it.

Trump is currently running neck and neck with Clinton in the latest poll taken of Iowa voters which shows him with a slight one point lead.
