Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced that he will give a speech lambasting the “corrupt dealings” of the Clinton family as he looks to pivot toward the general election and pacify Republicans concerned by his controversial remarks over the past week. 

{mosads}”I am going to give a major speech on probably Monday of next week, and we are going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons,” he said during a primary night rally in New York. “I think you are going to find it very informative and very, very interesting. I wonder if the press will want to attend.”
Trump went on to lambast Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, for turning “the State Department into her own private hedge fund,” accusing her of rewarding countries who donated to her family foundation. He went on to bash her for using a private email server to “keep her corrupt dealings out of the public record.”
“They’ve made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts,” he said. “It’s a sad day in America when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens.”
The attacks on Clinton come as part of a more polished speech from Trump Tower Tuesday night, aimed at placating Republican elites who have been sweating his controversial attacks on a Hispanic judge whom he called biased against him because of his ethnicity. After broad denouncement from both sides of the aisle, Trump issued a statement Tuesday afternoon seeking to calm nerves by asserting that his comments were misrepresented by the media and promising not to bring up the issue again. 
Clinton dedicated much of a recent foreign policy speech to attacking Trump’s character and positions.
