Hillary Clinton is telling supporters that she doesn’t know “which Donald Trump” will show up at the presidential debates.

At a private fundraiser in East Hampton Monday, Clinton told supporters that she is “running against someone who will say or do anything.” The Democratic presidential candidate said her Republican opponent may try and convey “gravity” or he could seek to “score points.”

Clinton called this year “the most unpredictable electoral season” she had ever seen. Her remarks could be heard by a small group of reporters in a nearby room.

Stressing that the race was not over yet, Clinton noted that she had recently been warned that many people tuning into the debates “will be paying attention for the first time” and that the campaign can’t “assume they have followed anything.”

In the midst of a multi-day fundraising swing through the wealthy Hamptons, Clinton stressed her commitment to boosting the minimum wage, improving access to education and improving mental health care. She also argued that Republican efforts were underway in many states to make it harder for minority voters to participate.

“It is not an accident that they have ended up closing all the DMVs where African Americans in Alabama live,” Clinton said, referring to motor vehicle offices where people can obtain identification cards used in voting. “That is how brazen it is. And what we have got to do is stand up.”

Clinton also noted that David Duke, the white supremacist who is running for US Senate from Louisiana, has endorsed Trump and “he is the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.” She added that “Trump’s acceptance of him could put that man, that despicable man, in the Senate of the United States.”

Arguing Trump has hurt the country, Clinton said she would need to “repair the damage that has been done.”
