Following victory in Indiana, and ultimately sealing his status as the GOP nominee, Donald Trump has shifted his cross-hairs to Hillary Clinton once again, declaring that she should be barred from running for election altogether.
In an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Trump zeroed in on Hillary, returning to the ongoing saga over her private email server.
“She should not be allowed to run in the election,” Trump declared, saying Hillary is “only being protected by the Democrats”.
“She should suffer like other people have suffered who have done far less than she has.” he added.
“You look at so many people who have done far less… it’s been a horror-show, and here she is running for President like nothing Happened.” Trump urged.
Responding to Hillary’s comments yesterday about Trump not meeting the standard Americans require of elected officials, Trump said “It’s just words, it’s just another politician talking.”
“And look,” he continued, “Bernie Sanders said about Hillary Clinton, she’s got poor judgment. He also said, by the way, she is unqualified.”
During a victory speech last night Trump set his sights on Clinton, saying “We’re going after Hillary Clinton. She will not be a great president. She will not be a good president. She will be a poor president. She doesn’t understand trade. Her husband signed perhaps in the history of the world the single worst trade deal ever done.”
In a CNN-ORC poll released today, Clinton is shown to have a double digit lead over Trump, 54 percent to 41 percent.
Analysts believe that Trump needs to win a ‘long shot’ 270 electoral votes to reach the White House. This means he needs to hold the states where Mitt Romney had victories in 2012, Arizona and North Carolina, and then win three swing states, namely Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.
Reacting to Trump securing the GOP nomination, Clinton declared that she will ‘be the voice of literally every group Trump attacks.’
“I have been thrilled by the response to his negative comments because most women see it not just as about me, they see it about themselves, they see it about their own situation. There has been an outpouring of support; we have raised millions of dollars,” Clinton said, referring to Trump’s accusations that all she has going for her is the ‘woman’s card’.
“What he was saying in going after my qualifications is very familiar to a lot of women and we are not going to be counted out any more, we are going to stand up and express our opinions, we are going to claim what is rightfully ours in the workplace, in our society, in our economy, in our political system.” Clinton stated.
“I think that he should take a look at the numbers, I am leading him by millions of votes, so if we are going to be talking about the contest between him and me before we even get to the general election, I feel pretty good about it,” Clinton said.
In a further interview with ABC News, Trump said that as far as VP picks go, he will likely pick an already elected official.

“It will probably be a person with political experience,” Trump said. “I do like the political sphere.”
“You have the military sphere, you have the political sphere and you have the business. Well the business I handle. I’m going to be very, very good on the military,” Trump said.
“I think probably I would like to go with somebody with great political experience.” he concluded.
