Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rejected insults Sunday from real estate mogul Donald Trump, saying she’s more concerned about the attacks the leading Republican presidential candidate has made against women, Muslims and immigrants.
Clinton, who appeared on ABC’s “This Week,” accused Trump of “hurting our unity at home … [and] undermining the values that we stand for in New York and across America. And he’s hurting us around the world.”
Trump posted a tweet Sunday referring to Clinton as “crooked.”
Crooked Hillary Clinton is spending a fortune on ads against me. I am the one person she doesn't want to run against. Will be such fun!

“He can say whatever he wants to say about me. I really could care less,” she said.
With the New York primary just two days away, Clinton said she’s not worried she’ll be upstaged by rival Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont despite his claims she has less support in the states yet to hold their primaries than the ones she already has won.
“When you win Massachusetts and Ohio and Illinois and Missouri and Texas and Arizona and Nevada and a lot of other places from the north to the south from the east to the west, that illustrates how far ahead of him and why, because I value every voter,” Clinton said.
On CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sanders said he agreed with Trump’s statement that the delegate selection systems in both parties are rigged.
Clinton currently has a 700 delegate-lead on Sanders if superdelegates are counted. Sanders predicted, however, the superdelegates will switch sides once they realize he has a better chance of beating Trump than Clinton does.
“I think a lot of people are saying, well, I may not like Bernie as much as I like Hillary. But at the end of the day, we must defeat Trump,” Sanders said on “This Week.” “We must not allow a Republican to get into the White House. Some of those people will come over to us as the stronger candidate.”
