You can read excerpts here from Hillary's speech on Thursday at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada or watch the video below.

"From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia."

His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.

"In just the past week, under the guise of "outreach" to Africans Americans, Trump has stood up in from of largely white audiences and described black communities in insulting and ignorant terms."

"Trumpwas sued by the State Department for refusing to rent apartments to black and Latino tenants....this pattern continued for decades."

"And let's not forget Trump first gained political prominence leading the charge for the so-called "Birthers."

Trump's "divisive rhetoric," is "like nothing we've heard before from a nominee for President of the United States from one of our two major parties. He's taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party. "

"There is someone who retweets white supremacist online, like the user who goes by the name "white genocide-TM." Trump took this fringe bigot with a few dozen followers and spread his message to 11 million people."

    She added, "This is what I want to make clear today: A man with a long history of racial discrimination, who traffics in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far reaches of the Internet, should never run our government or command our military. Ask yourself: If he doesn't respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?"

    "Of course there's always been a paranoid fringe in our politics, steeped in racial resentment. But it's never had the nominee of a major party stoking it, encouraging it, and giving it a national megaphone. Until now."

    "Trump is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to his most most hateful supporters."

    "His campaign famously posted an anti-semitic image--a Star of David imposed over a sea of dollar bills-that first appeared on a white supremacist website."

    She reminded us that Trump launched his campaign, describing Mexican immigrants as "rapists and criminals." Speaking about Trump's criticism of a Mexican-American judge, she added, "To this day he's never apologized to Judge Curiel."

    She defended Muslim Americans, and reminded us, "Under Donald Trump, America would distinguish itself as the only country in the world to impose a religious test at the border."

    Hillary brought up Paul Ryan. "Even the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, described that, and I quote, as 'the textbook definition of a racist comment.'"

    She mocked Trump for being "the only presidential candidate ever to get into a public feud with the Pope.

    Reviewing Trump's "conspiracy theories with racist undertones," Hillary chose this example: "He suggested that Sen. Ted Cruz's father was involved in the Kennedy assassination. Perhaps in Trump's mind, because Mr. Cruz was a Cuban immigrant, he must have had something to do" with the assassination.

    She pointed out that the newly installed CEO of Trump's campaign, Breitbart executive Steve Bannon, recently "railed against Speaker Paul Ryan for 'rubbing his social-justice Catholicism in my nose every second.' "

    "This is a moment of reckoning for every Republican dismayed that the Party of Lincoln has become the Party of Trump. It's a moment of reckoning for all of us who love our country and believe that America is better than this. Every day, more Americans are standing up and saying "enough is enough" – including a lot of Republicans. I'm honored to have their support. And I promise you this: with your help, I will be a President for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. For those who vote for me and those who don't."

    "For all Americans.

    "Because I believe we are stronger together.
