WASHINGTON, DC - Hilary Clinton says the United States should not elect a Republican president.
"I would not advocate that we put a Republican in charge of this nation." Ms. Clinton said Sunday.
Clinton's comment comes on the heels of GOP front-runner Donald Trump taking a question from an campaign rally attendee who said, "We have a problem in this country; it's called Muslims."
Clinton, meanwhile, was asked Sunday whether a president's political affiliation should matter to voters.
"I guess it depends on what that affiliation is," she said. "Republican ideology is inconsistent with the values and principles of America. Of course it should matter."
Now, the Republican National Committee is striking back:
"It's beyond the pale and she should withdraw" from the presidential race, said Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, per Fox News.
