She also added: "Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime".
Hill called Trump a white supremacist during a discussion on Twitter and argued that his rise has further empowered white supremacists. Even if you privately believe Trump is a white supremacist, you simply don't throw that term around publicly unless you have some sort of hardcore proof.
