MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Donald Trump is accusing rival Hillary Clinton of "trying to smear" him and his supporters with a speech that will try to link him with hate.
Clinton is delivering a speech Thursday highlighting Trump's support within the "alt-right" movement, which is often associated with efforts on the far right to preserve "white identity."
Trump says that Clinton is trying to accuse all of his millions of supporters, including those attending the New Hampshire rally where he is speaking, "of being racists, which we're not."
He says, "It's the oldest play in the Democratic playbook."
He said her speech is aimed at distracting from questions about her family foundation and private emails use.
He calls it "one of the most brazen attempts at distraction in the history of politics."
