Hillary Clinton on Friday slammed Donald Trump for being the standard bearer of the Obama birther movement, telling the audience that "he is feeding into the worst impulses, the bigotry and bias that lurks in our country."
Clinton made the remarks at the Black Women's Agenda 39th Annual Symposium in Washington, D.C.
"For five years [Trump] has led the birther movement to delegitimize our first black president," Clinton said in her speech. "His campaign was founded on this outrageous lie. There is no erasing it in history.
"He is feeding into the worst impulses, the bigotry and bias that lurks in our country. Barack Obama was born in America, plain and simple, and Donald Trump owes him and the American people an apology," Clinton said.
Clinton cited Maya Angelou's saying that "when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. And we know who Donald is."
"Imagine someone who distorts the truth to fit a very narrow view of the world," Clinton said. "Imagine a president who he sees doesn't look like him and doesn't agree with him and thinks, that person must not be a real American. Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States."
