The presidential race got personal this week as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton exchanged insults. In an attempt to reach out to minority voters, Trump labeled Clinton a "bigot," while she shot back with some of his own past controversial statements. The Republican nominee also "softened" his immigration proposals including his plan for mass deportation of undocumented immigrants.
