Donald Trump retweeted the video of Hillary Clinton referring to black gang members as "super-predators" who need to be "brought to heel" in support of criminal sentencing reforms in 1996.
Clinton has faced this controversy already during the 2016 campaign. "Well, first of all, you know, I have said that I should not have used that word. You know, I was talking about drug gangs and traffickers and cartels, but it was a poor choice of words," Clinton told the hosts of WWPR-FM's "The Breakfast Club," a popular black radio show in New York City in April.
During the heat of the Democratic primary she was inturrupted by Black Lives Matter activists demanding an apology for her use of the term. "Do you want to hear the facts or do you just want to talk?" she asked the protesters before they were removed from the building.
Bill Clinton was also confronted about the issue in April. He angrily told Black Lives Matter protesters that they "are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter."
Host of 'The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur said in February that this issue should cost the Clintons the black vote.
