Though she has yet to clinch the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton is going after Donald Trump in their shared home state of New York in advance of the April 19 primary.
Clinton today is debuting a new TV ad that proclaims her the only one “tough enough to stop” the billionaire GOP frontrunner. The spot, titled “Stronger Together,” is airing in New York City, where the bulk of the primary vote is likely to be generated.
I believe this is the third Clinton ad in rotation in New York, and its release comes as her Democratic primary opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, hit the airwaves for the first time in the state over the weekend.
Here’s the full transcript of “Stronger Together”:
Narrator: He says we should punish women who have abortions.
Donald Trump: There has to be some form of punishment.
Narrator: That Mexicans who come to America are rapists.
Donald Trump: They’re rapists.
Narrator: And that we should ban Muslims from coming here at all.
Donald Trump: Total and complete shutdown.
Hillary Clinton: 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.
Narrator: With so much at stake, she’s the one tough enough to stop Trump.
