Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made a stop in Jackson Heights on Monday while campaigning before the New York primary next week.
Clinton joined U.S. Rep Joseph Crowley at the Jackson Diner, located at 37-47 74th St., ahead of the April 19th primary vote.
Clinton praised the diversity of both Jackson Heights and Queens as a whole, before speaking about her opponent in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, and Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Clinton said that Sanders has struggled in her home state, according to the Daily News.
“Under the bright spotlight and scrutiny, here in New York, [Sanders] has had trouble answering questions,” Clinton said, the News reported.
She went on to call Trump’s behavior “dangerous” and “divisive.”
“Trump’s rhetoric, his divisiveness, his encouraging of aggressive behavior, even violence, is absolutely unacceptable and needs to be called out,” she reportedly said. “People around the world, as well as our country are hearing this, and they’re wondering, what’s happening in America?”
Clinton did not eat while at the diner, but left with two to-go bags, according to DNA Info.
