Hillary Clinton said Saturday she regretted saying that half of Donald Trump's supporters belong in a "basket of deplorables" -- a remark the billionaire Republican slammed as her "worst mistake of the political season".There was even a mock account called "Hillary's Basket," with the handle @TheDeplorables, deriding the former first lady and U.S. senator.With less than two months to go before Election Day, and the race still tight, Clinton walked back her remark Saturday. Clinton then listed a number of "deplorable" things about the Republican presidential candidate.Clinton, 68, also told the fundraiser crowd that other Trump supporters feel let down by the government and the economy, and are "desperate for change".She reiterated that point Saturday, saying many Trump supporters are "hard-working Americans" who feel marginalized. Trump's running mate Mike Pence said Clinton had disrespected voters.An FBI investigation found that Clinton sent unsecured emails with classified material through the server, but ultimately recommended that she not be prosecuted.
