The Republican nominee has stepped up his campaign name calling as Clinton begins to gain ground in the polls.

He told the crowd Monday that Bernie Sanders made a “deal with the devil,” by agreeing to back the Democratic presidential nominee following his bitter loss to Clinton in the primaries.

“He made a deal with the devil. She's the devil. He made a deal with the devil. It's true,” Trump said.

In the past, Trump has alluded to calling the former secretary of state the devil but Monday’s rally marked the first time he has flat-out called her “the devil.”

Trump has famously called Clinton many names in the past, including “liar” and his personal favorite “Crooked Hillary.”
