Clinton ad: ‘She’s the one tough enough to stop Trump’
Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a new ad Sunday calling out GOP front-runner Donald Trump by name ahead of the New York’s April 19 primary.
The ad attacks Trump’s rhetoric on immigration, Muslims, and abortion, while painting Clinton as a unifier, and the only candidate strong enough to defeat the billionaire businessman in a general election matchup.
Clinton’s campaign did not specify how large of an ad buy it would be, but said it would start airing in New York City this week.
“Donald Trump says we can solve America’s problems by turning against each other. It’s wrong, and it goes against everything New York and America stand for,” Clinton says in the ad.
CNN has reached out to the Trump campaign for response to the ad.
The ad comes Republican and Democratic candidates campaign across New York. A recent Fox News poll shows Trump leading at 54% in the Empire State, and Clinton leading Sanders 53% to 37%.
