The ugly, divisive rhetoric we're hearing from Donald Trump—the encouragement of violence and aggression—is not only wrong, it’s dangerous.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 12, 2016
A following tweet quoted comments she made during a rally in St. Louis on Saturday in which she called Trump’s rhetoric “political arson,” according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.
"If you play with matches, you can start a fire you can’t control. That's not leadership—it's political arson,” she said.
Clinton’s comments come a day after the Post-Dispatch reported that more than 30 protesters were arrested during a Trump rally in St. Louis. Trump later called off his rally in Chicago.
During her rally Saturday, Clinton called the clash between Trump supporters and protestors “deeply disturbing” and blamed the GOP front-runner for inciting the violence.
On Twitter, she called on Americans to to “stand together against the forces of division and discrimination that are trying to divide America between ‘us’ and ‘them.’”
If you see bigotry, you should oppose it. If you see violence, you should condemn it. If you see a bully, you should stand up to him.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 12, 2016
Clinton also mocked Trump’s campaign slogan.
You don't make America great by getting rid of everything that made America great. Our values, diversity, openness—these are strengths.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 12, 2016
