Donald Trump continued Friday night to highlight Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” remark — this time in quite a creative manner.

The Republican presidential nominee walked onstage to the theme song of the popular musical “Les Misérables” at a Miami rally, sending the crowd into a frenzy.

“Welcome to all you deplorables!” Trump told the audience, prompting a roaring applause.

Clinton ignited controversy last Friday when she said at an LGBT gala, “You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”

Though the former secretary of state later walked back the statement, Trump has continued to hammer Clinton all week for the comment.
