"If you want to be president of the United States, you got to get familiar with the United States. You’ve got to spend time with Americans of all sorts and backgrounds in every part of our country," she said to supporters at a Wilmington, Del., rally.

"Don’t just fly that big jet in and land it and go make a big speech and insult everybody you can think of, then get on that big jet and go back to your country club house in Florida or your penthouse in New York. I don’t think that puts you in touch with what’s going on.” 

Trump has eschewed the typical presidential campaign formula--a mixture of glad-handing, baby-kissing, small events and huge rallies--in favor of a steady diet of rallies. Just on Monday alone, Trump planned to hold three rallies in both Pennslyvania and Rhode Island.  

Clinton has also faced accusations of being out of touch with voters, specifically around her 2014 comment that she was "dead broke" after she left the White House.

Clinton went on to criticize Trump's recent calls to pull out of NATO and to allow other countries to obtain nuclear weapons, as well as Cruz's call to patrol Muslim neighborhoods.
