Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump used different tactics to appeal to evangelical Christian Hispanics this weekend, with the Democratic hopeful presenting a message of policy and faith while the presumptive GOP nominee tried to explain how his platform would benefit minorities.
The two messages, aired in videos presented at the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California, on Friday, come at a time when a new Fox News Latino poll found Clinton enjoying a nearly 40-point lead over Trump among Hispanics, a critical and growing voting bloc.
In her video, Clinton vowed to raise the minimum wage, create new jobs and offer quality education to all Americans. She talked about how she wants to pass comprehensive immigration reform, taking a thinly veiled swipe at Trump, though she didn't mention him by name.
"You know, we're hearing some divisive and dangerous rhetoric in this election," she said. "We have a candidate who wants to tear families apart and forcibly deport 11 million undocumented immigrants ... that is not who we are as a people."
Clinton, a Methodist, also stressed the importance of religion, saying she's been a "person of faith" her entire life.
"The lessons I've learned from my family and church guide me every day of this campaign," she said.
And if you'd like to watch Trump's laughable cellphone-on-a-plane video to the NHCLC, here it is.
