In what could result in a somewhat dull general election should Republican front-runner Donald Trump be the party nominee, likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said she has no intentions of mixing it up with the real estate tycoon.

Appearing Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Clinton was asked to respond to a new nickname Trump rolled out for her on Saturday and she said her rival can “say whatever he wants to say about me. I really could [not] care less.”

While speaking at a campaign rally in Watertown, N.Y., Trump referred to Clinton as “crooked Hillary.”

“I don’t respond to Donald Trump and his string of insults about me,” Clinton told George Stephanopoulos. “I can take care of myself.”

Clinton let slip the expected strategy she will employ if Trump is her general election opponent.

“What I’m concerned about is how he goes after everybody else.” she said, adding that Trump “goes after women, Muslims, immigrants and people with disabilities.”

“He is hurting our unity at home,” Clinton said. “He is undermining the values that we stand for in New York and across America. And he’s hurting us around the world.”

Clinton insisted that she will stay focused on the issues instead of getting down in the mud with Trump.

Of course, many a former Republican presidential primary opponent said pretty much the same thing.
