What did Hillary Clinton say About Trump Supporters ?

Just a few days ago Hillary Clinton said that Donald Trump supporters fit into a "basket of deplorables" with led to #BasketofDeplorables to be trending on Twitter.

The democratic candidate did not let up, saying “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” she said to applause and laughter. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up".

Trump struck back in characteristic fashion, using his twitter to say the following “Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard working people. I think it will cost her at the polls!”

Clinton later offered an apology, saying that she was "grossly generalistic" and that is "never a good idea".
