Trump: Ready to move my focus to Clinton

“I want to start focusing on Hillary,” Trump told supporters Tuesday night at a rally in Claremont, N.H., adding that “in a way, I think that’s going to be easier.”
The real estate mogul noted that while Democrats have “structural advantages,” he expects to win states that typically lean Democratic.
“We’ll be bringing in states that nobody thinks of with Republicans,” Trump continued.
Trump has already stepped up his attacks on Clinton, mocking her for using the bathroom during the Democratic debate and saying she got “schlonged” in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.
The GOP front-runner has also taken aim at former President Bill Clinton’s past infidelities, defending his attacks after the former secretary of State accused Trump for having a “penchant for sexism.”
Trump delivered his usual stump speech, railing against the media and touting his high poll numbers.
He also attacked his GOP rivals, namely Jeb Bush, repeating that he’s “low energy” and chiding the former Florida governor over his spending on attack ads and low standing in the polls.
But Trump, who typically leaves after a rally after his remarks, took a handful of questions from the crowd at the end.
When asked about his stance on women serving in combat roles in the military, Trump dodged answering directly.
“There is a tremendous amount of turmoil as you know in the military over that issue,” he said, continuing that after debating the issue "long and hard ... we’re going to come up with the right answer.”
The real estate mogul was also asked about whether he supports equal pay.
“I love equal pay, I do,” Trump said, adding that he’s employed “many” female executives in his company. He also noted that they sometimes make more than their male counterparts.
Trump holds a commanding lead in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary with 26.3 percent, according to a RealClearPolitics polling average.
The state’s primary will be held Feb. 9.
