Donald Trump not eligible to be US President - Clinton

While Addressing the NAACP National Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, the State which is hosting the Republican convention, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has alleged that Donald Trump is unfit to become the US president as he "demeans" women, plays coy with "white supremacists" and is a "threat" to American democracy.

"This man is the nominee of the Party of Lincoln. And we are watching it become the Party of Trump. And that is not just a huge loss to our democracy, it is a threat to our democracy. By now, we have heard a lot of troubling things about Donald Trump but that ones shocking," Clinton, 68, said.

"It all adds up to an undeniable conclusion: I don’t care if you are a Democrat, a Republican, an Independent? Donald Trump cannot become President of the United States. And that is why we have got to work together to get out the vote this fall," she said.

"Donald Trump led the movement to de-legitimize our first black president, trumpeting the so-called birther movement. Donald Trump plays coy with white supremacists," Clinton said.

"Donald insults Mexican immigrants, even an American judge born of Mexican heritage. Donald Trump demeans women. Donald Trump wants to ban an entire religion from entering our country," she alleged.

Clinton said that the first time the billionaire tycoon was quoted in The New York Times was in 1973 when the Justice Department went after his company for refusing to rent apartments to African Americans. "It was one of the largest federal cases of its kind at the time. And when federal investigators spoke with Trumps employees, they said they were instructed to mark rental applications from black people with a C. A C for colored," she said.
