Donald Trump Thursday doubled down on his claim that Hillary Clinton was a bigot because of her policies that have disenfranchised African Americans and Hispanics.

"She is," the Republican nominee told Anderson Cooper on CNN after speaking in Manchester, N.H. "If you look at what is happening to the inner cities — African Americans, Hispanics — she talks all of the time.

"She said the vets are essentially just fine," Trump added. "She is selling them down the tubes, not doing anything for those communities."

In Mississippi on Wednesday, Trump called Clinton a "bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future."

Clinton later told Cooper — as well as supporters in Nevada on Thursday — that Trump was "reinforcing harmful stereotypes" and was running a presidential campaign built on "prejudice and paranoia."

In his CNN interview, Cooper pressed Trump on whether he felt Clinton was a bigot or was it her policies.

"You're saying she has hatred …?" Cooper asked.

"Her policies are bigoted," Trump responded.

"You're saying she is bigoted?"

"Yes, because her policies — and others that believe like she does also," the nominee said. "She came out with policies over the years.

"Over the years, a long time, totally bigoted."

"But does she have hatred towards …?" Cooper asked.

"I think she has been extremely bad for African-Americans, extremely bad for Hispanics," Trump said. "You look at what happens with her policies and the policies of President [Barack] Obama and others.

"Look at the poverty, the rise in poverty. The rise in violence. …"

"But hatred is at the core of that?" the reporter asked.

"Maybe she is lazy," Trump said.
