Amid Protests From Animal Rights Activists, Hillary Clinton Blasts Trump and Sons as Hunters
Secret Service agents rushed to Hillary Clinton’s side Thursday as animal rights protesters got too close for comfort at a Vegas rally, but not before she took a jab at her Republican rival and his family.
Clinton told the concerned crowd that the protestors must be campaigning against Trump because “Trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals.”
The Democratic presidential nominee was referring to a photo of Trump’s eldest sons — Donald Jr. and Eric — hunting big game in Africa several years ago.
Clinton is also celebrating a growing lead over Trump in national polls.
She now has a 15-point lead over Trump in a new McClatchy-Marist poll. Clinton leads 48 percent to Trump’s 33 percent.
