PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Hillary Clinton’s campaign has released an online video that compiles footage of white supremacist leaders praising Donald Trump.

The video comes ahead of a Clinton speech Thursday that will seek to attach Trump to the so-called “alt-right” movement that is often associated with efforts on the far right to preserve “white identity.”

Trump has been criticized for failing to immediately denounce the support that he’s garnered from white nationalists and supremacist, including former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

Trump’s campaign responded with a strongly worded statement from a prominent black supporter, Pastor Mark Burns, who says Clinton and her campaign “went to a disgusting new low” with the video tying the Trump Campaign to “horrific racial images.”

He called on Clinton to disavow the video.
