ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called rival Hillary Clinton a "bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings." He made the remarks at a rally in Mississippi. Trump is set to meet with African-American leaders in New York City on Thursday and said he would unveil an immigration proposal within the next two weeks. When asked by CNN to respond to Trump's charge that she was a "bigot," Clinton said he was "taking a hate movement mainstream. Clinton will accuse Trump of embracing a brand of U.S. political conservatism associated with white nationalism and nativism when she makes a Nevada campaign stop on Thursday. Aides said Clinton will link Trump's statements about immigration and religion to the rise of a political fringe movement in the U.S. known as the "alternative right", which opposes multiculturalism and immigration. Clinton's speech is an effort to keep attention focused on what a top aide called Trump's "divisive and dystopian vision" as he tries to reverse his slumping position in opinion polls in key battleground states before the Nov. 8 presidential election.
