JENKINTOWN, Pa. — Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Friday that a common election match-up against Donald Trump could be "all about" insults and derogatory comments if they both become their party'south nominees.

After a long riff about the dangers of cyber-bullying, Clinton pivoted to Trump, saying she won't reply to what the GOP frontrunner says about her directly, but vowing instead to go after him for what he'south said about women, immigrants and Muslims.

"You know what, it isn't really about me," Clinton said to a mostly female audience during a discussion about equal pay and gender parity.

"I'm going to reply on behalf of all the people that have been the target of his hatred, and his demagoguery."

The prediction comes as Clinton looks to safe the Democratic nomination and turn her attention to the GOP front-runner. After winning the NY primary on Tuesday, she confidently said that the race was presently in the "homestretch" and "victory is in sight."

"Don't get it personally, because it can knock you to your knees if you get it personally," she said.

Trump recently started calling the former secretary of state "Crooked Hillary," which she dismissed summarily when asked about the label latest week.

"He can declare whatever he wants to declare about me," she said, pledging to stay focused on the "issues."

Clinton has long said that she'south running on a "love and kindness" platform and on Friday, she promised her campaign would aim to stay positive.

"To launch personal attacks, to attempt to intimidate and degrade somebody else, is off limits," Clinton said. "And we've to be powerful about this."

Women'south issues, including pay equity, are a key component of Clinton'south policy plans.

During the roundtable, she praised the Treasury Department'south decision to keep Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, but said "it'south not just sufficient to be on the money, you necessity to be making the money."

Sitting beside long-time equal pay advocate Lily Ledbetter, Clinton called the announcement "exciting" but said "I also wish to create sure that women are making the money that we deserve to make."
