BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has told Northeastern University’s graduating class that their diversity makes them “Donald Trump’s worst nightmare.”

Kerry is speaking to an estimated audience of 25,000 in Boston’s TD Garden for the Northeastern commencement ceremony Friday.

In his remarks, the Democrat said the graduating class is the most diverse in Northeastern’s history. He noted the wide range of races and religions and said, “In other words, you are Donald Trump’s worst nightmare.” The audience applauded.

Trump has angered many by comments he has made about Hispanics and Muslims, among other groups. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee backs building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and wants to deport the millions of people in the U.S. illegally. He has also proposed banning Muslims from entering the U.S.
