Trump Accuses Clinton Of ‘Pandering’ To Black Voters

Hillary Clinton was “pandering” to African-Americans in New York when she said she carries hot sauce to add to her meals on the campaign trail, according to Donald Trump.

“It’s the same thing that she always does,” the Republican presidential front-runner said on Fox News. “She carries hot sauce like I carry hot sauce. I don’t know, it's just so phony; it’s so pandering; it’s so terrible.”

The Hill reported that Trump was responding to Clinton’s comments during a Monday appearance on the “The Breakfast Club,” a New York City radio station. She told the show’s black hosts that she always has hot sauce available. One of the interviewers suggested she was trying to appeal to African-American voters in Tuesday’s New York primary, and joked that she was “pandering to black people again.” Clinton replied by asking with a laugh: “Is it working?”

The former secretary of state claimed to have been consuming “a lot of hot sauce and raw peppers” recently. It was not the first time she has expressed a fondness for spicy food, having long been a fan of hot peppers.

The Hill noted that Trump also accused Clinton of “pandering” when she took a ride on the New York City subway as a photo opportunity. The billionaire businessman remarked Monday that her opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, had “a decent chance to win” the Democratic primary in the Empire State. However, Trump said it “won’t matter” due to a “crooked” process that awarded enough superdelegates to Clinton to guarantee her the nomination. She won the primary to widen her lead in the race.
