Hillary Clinton upping attacks on Donald Trump

With only 14 contests remaining, the adviser said, there just wasn't a need for all the field workers

(CNN) – On the democratic campaign trail, Senator Bernie Sanders is looking ahead and campaigning in Oregon.  Which doesn’t hold its primary for another two and-a-half weeks.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is looking even further ahead, to the general election. Focusing more on republican rival, Donald Trump.

Tonight, Hillary Clinton is upping her attacks on Donald Trump.

Trump: “Everything I say I’m going to do folks, I do.”

The Clinton campaign releasing this new video offering a glimpse at its strategy for taking on the GOP front runner. Highlighting Trump’s promises.

Donald Trump: “We’re going to have a deportation force. A total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US. When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families.”

WOLF: “you say you would even to further than waterboarding, is that right?”

Trump: “absolutely”

The fresh offensive coming after the two exchanged fire over women’s issues.

Trump: “The only thing she has going is the woman’s card, and the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her.”

Clinton: “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card then deal me in!”

Clinton’s new focus on Trump comes after a dominating performance in Tuesday’s 5-state primary – putting her 215 delegates shy of clinching the nomination. But sanders insists the primary fight is not over yet.

Sanders: “We are in this campaign to win and become the Democratic nominee.”

Declaring that he can turn the race around and ultimately still win the nomination.

Sanders: “I am very good at arithmetic. And I can count delegates and we are behind today. But you know what? Unusual things happen in politics.”

But the Sanders campaign is significantly downsizing dropping to at most 350 staffers, down from a recent peak of over 1000.

Even so, Sanders’ wife Jane, says no one should write her husband off.

Jane Sanders: “Back in mid-March he had lost five states and everybody was writing his political obituary and then we came back to win eight in a row. The next states look much better and we hope to do really well there.”

A sanders adviser tells CNN the layoffs were a natural progression for the campaign. With only 14 contests remaining, the adviser said, there just wasn’t a need for all the field workers.
