Perhaps Donald Trump didn't always deal in divisive rhetoric. In an interview that aired Friday on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Hillary Clinton said that the Trump she once knew was a much different man than the "offensive" person she's seeing on the presidential campaign trail right now.

"It's been most surprising to me to see somebody who was affable and was good company and had a reputation of being kind of bigger than life really traffic in a lot of the prejudice and paranoia. And some of the comments that he's made, which have been so divisive and mean-spirited, doesn't quite fit with what I thought I knew about him."
