Clinton takes aim at Trump and gets unwanted support

As Clinton faces criticism from sanders, she's getting consideration from an unlikely place, Charles Koch

(CNN) – Hillary Clinton is taking aim at Donald Trump in a new campaign ad. This, as a mega republican donor suggests Clinton could be a better president than the GOP nominee.

All this unfolding as voters in five northeast states head to the polls Tuesday.

On the eve of primaries in five states. Hillary Clinton is taking aim at Donald Trump:

Hillary Clinton, Monday in Wilmington, “Donald Trump says wages are too high in America and doesn’t support raising the minimum wage and I have said, ‘Come out of those towers named for yourself and actually talk and listen to people.”

Clinton ratcheting up her attacks on the GOP frontrunner at a campaign stop in Delaware.

Clinton: “Don’t just fly that big jet in and land it and go make a big speech and insult everybody you can think of and then get on the big jet and go back to your country club house in Florida or your penthouse in New York.”

She’s trying to position herself as the unifying alternative to trump. Releasing an ad called “love and kindness.”

Clinton Ad: America is stronger when we are all supporting one and other.

But as Clinton looks to the general election, practically ignoring Bernie Sanders in her stump speech, sanders is fully engaged in his primary battle, hitting Clinton in Connecticut today:

Sanders, in Hartford, “Let me take a moment to talk about some of the differences between Secretary Clinton and myself. For a start, I am very proud to come before you and tell you I do not have a super PAC.

Trailing considerably in the pledged delegate count, sanders pushed back on critics who say he can’t catch up to Clinton on CNN’s state of the union.

Sen. Sanders: “I think we do have a path to victory. I think we have come a very, very long way in the last year, and we’re going to fight for every last vote until California and the D.C. Primary.”

As Clinton faces criticism from sanders, she’s getting consideration from an unlikely place – conservative mega-donor and billionaire Charles Koch.

He said Sunday “it’s possible” Clinton could be better than the GOP nominee.

Charles Koch, Chairman, Koch Industries, “We would have to believe her actions would be quite different than her rhetoric. Let me put it that way. But on some of the Republican candidates we would– before we could support them, we’d have to believe their actions will be quite different than the rhetoric we’ve heard so far.”

But Clinton was quick to respond – tweeting “not interested in endorsements from people who deny climate science and try to make it harder for people to vote.”
