Donald Trump this week mocked his presidential rival Hillary Clinton for riding the New York subway, calling it “pandering.” 

“She hasn’t been in the subway in 20 years, if she was ever in the subway,” Trump said during an interview Thursday on “The Michele McPhee Show” highlighted by BuzzFeed.

“Just seeing her do that, just for a picture, for a photo op is sad, actually, if you want to know the truth,” Trump said.

A cluster of media followed Clinton as she rode the subway Thursday, shaking hands and posing for photos with those on the train. The trip got off to a rocky start as Clinton struggled to get through the turnstile. 

 
Trump and Clinton are looking to defend their territory in New York ahead of the state’s April 19 primary as they lead their respective Republican and Democratic opponents.
