Hillary Clinton is locked in a contested New York primary with Bernie Sanders — but the first television ad she plans to run here is all about Donald Trump.
The 30-second TV spot that will begin airing ahead of the April 19 primary — a Clinton spokesman said the timing of the ad launch in the expensive New York media market was still to be determined — uses grainy footage from a Trump rally earlier this month were a white supporter sucker-punches an African-American protester.

“When some say we can solve America’s problems by building walls, banning people based on their religion, and turning against each other, well, this is New York. And we know better,” Clinton says while the camera pans over a sign advertising a new Trump hotel that is “coming 2016.”
The ad is clearly aimed directly at defeating Donald Trump in the general which seems to indicate that Clinton is unconcerned with winning the primary in the state she represented in the Senate.
Whether that is good politics or not is left to be seen, but currently Hillary is leading Bernie by wide margins in the polls.
