Washington: Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has said that he prefers to run against Democratic leader Hillary Clinton in the elections and not against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders despite that he is giving a tough time to the former secretary of state.

“I guess. It’s over for Bernie. I don’t want to run against Bernie,” Trump said in Pennsylvania, where the Republican presidential primary is scheduled to be held on April 26. “I want to run against crooked Hillary Clinton. We are going to beat her so badly. Is there anyone more crooked than this woman?” Trump said, as he appeared to be confident of bagging the party’s presidential nomination despite being quite far from the necessary 1,237 delegates. However, he praised Sanders for his tough fight against Clinton.

“(Sanders) said she suffers from bad judgement... He said she’s not qualified to be the president. Now what he meant is because her judgement is so bad, so said Bernie Sanders, not me. So now I’m going to say: She’s not qualified, OK?” Trump said.

“We have all of the mistakes Hillary made as secretary of state. The war in Iraq has been devastating. We have probably spent $4 trillion in the Middle East,” Trump said in his speech.
