Clinton braces for fight with Trump as we approach conventions


by Joseph Earnest May 5, 2016


Newscast Media WASHINGTONDemocratic candidate Hillary Clinton has issued sharp words for likely rival Donald Trump, as Republican voters are still coming to terms with their likely candidate, who won a landslide victory in Indiana.

"He is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire," Clinton said of Trump in an interview with CNN. "He makes these grand statements and grand accusations. At some point when you're running for president, you actually have to put a little meat on the bones. You've got to tell people what it is you're going to do and how you're going to do it."

The last of Trump's rivals to go was Ohio Governor John Kasich, who announced his decision to suspend his campaign in an emotional address in his home state on Wednesday evening in the US.

Kasich's speech had followed a similar one by Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who dropped out of the race following his defeat to Trump on Tuesday. Cruz had counted on winning Indiana in an effort halt Trump's seemingly unstoppable rise to the nomination.

The Democratic frontrunner also took to Twitter to urge supporters to donate in the wake of Trump's victory. Clinton, who lost her primary race in Indiana to rival Bernie Sanders, is nonetheless presenting herself as the clear alternative to the New York billionaire.

Meanwhile, Republicans were still coming to terms with the meaning of his win and the reality of a Trump candidacy. While some, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have wearily pledged their support for Trump, other influential conservatives have refused to rally behind him.      Add Comments>>
