Trump Anticipates Running Against ‘Crooked Hillary’

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who frequently assigns derogatory nicknames to his political rivals, on Friday called the Democratic front-runner “Crooked Hillary.”

The Hill noted that the name-calling indicates the billionaire businessman is looking ahead to a possible battle with Hillary Clinton in November’s general election. Trump appeared poised to win New York’s GOP primary on Tuesday to increase his lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. He needs 1,237 pledged delegates to clinch the nomination on the first ballot at the party’s national convention in Cleveland, Ohio, in July.

“We have crooked Hillary — she’s been crooked from the beginning, and to think she has a shot at becoming president; we can’t let it happen,” Trump declared Sunday during a campaign event in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. “The only person that crooked Hillary Clinton does not want to run against is Donald Trump. Two months ago, we gave her a little dose. She said something about me, I gave it back, and believe me, that was a bad night in the Clinton household.”

The real-estate mogul predicted that a Trump-Clinton contest would draw a record number of voters to the polls. “Everybody says it,” he told his audience.

During the Republican primaries, Trump has often referred to Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted.” He called Marco Rubio “little Marco” before the Florida senator suspended his campaign.
