Donald Trump likened Hillary Clinton's "deplorables" remark last week to Mitt Romney's "47 percent" comment that doomed his campaign four years ago — though "this was far worse."

"That was her 47 percent moment," Trump told Sean Hannity on Fox News on Tuesday. "I think it was far worse. This was far worse.

"Let's see what happens, but there are a lot of very angry people. People are really upset that she would feel that way.

"That's really her true feeling," he said. "That's her true feeling."

Clinton has been under fire since saying Friday at a New York fundraiser: "To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.

"The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it," the Democrat added. "And, unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up."

At a private fundraiser in Florida in May 2012, Romney said: "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him [President Barack Obama], who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.

"That's an entitlement," Romney said.

The former Massachusetts governor's comments at the $50,000-a-plate event were secretly recorded and leaked to Mother Jones magazine.

The remarks came after Romney had effectively won the GOP nomination and doomed his campaign.

"It's very unfair," Trump told Hannity of the remark. "A horrible characterization — and even people that support her say, 'Wow, what a mistake.'"

He added Clinton's later apology "probably got her into more trouble.

"It's been a really bad statement."
