Hillary Clinton's camp reacted to Donald Trump's admission that he regrets certain things he's said on the campaign trail by calling the apology "a well-written phrase" he read from a teleprompter.

Clinton deputy communications director Christina Reynolds told The Hill Trump has been on the attack since his campaign started 14 months ago.

"Donald Trump literally started his campaign by insulting people," Reynolds said.

"He has continued to do so through each of the 428 days from then until now, without shame or regret.

"We learned tonight that his speechwriter and teleprompter knows he has much for which he should apologize. But that apology tonight is simply a well-written phrase until he tells us which of his many offensive, bullying and divisive comments he regrets — and changes his tune altogether."

Trump's Thursday night speech in Charlotte included the use of a teleprompter, something he has largely left backstage in favor of speaking more off the cuff during his presidential campaign. The title of Reynolds' reaction statement was "Trump's Teleprompter regret," The Hill reports.

Trump, whose campaign received a jolt this week when it brought onboard a new chief executive and a new campaign manager, said Thursday he has said things in speeches he wishes he could take back.

"Sometimes, in the heat of debate, and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing," Trump said. "And, believe it or not, I regret it.

"I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues."
