Democratic front-runner and former First Lady of the US, Hillary Clinton, now requires only 240 delegates to clinch the Democratic Party nomination for the Presidential race in November after winning in four of the five states’ Primaries held on Tuesday.
Mrs Clinton swept Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Connecticut while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders walked away with Rhode Island.
The former American Secretary of State and Mr Trump are already gearing up for a possible showdown against one another in November’s White House election.
At her Tuesday night victory rally in Philadelphia, Mrs Clinton assailed the property magnate.
“Now, the other day Mr Trump accused me of playing the, quote, woman card,” the former Secretary of State, US senator and first lady told her supporters.
“Well if fighting for women’s healthcare, paid family leave and equal pay is playing the ‘woman card’, then deal me in!”
In another jab, she went on to envisage an America where “love trumps hate”.
At his victory rally in New York, Mr Trump said Mrs Clinton was a “flawed candidate”, whom he would beat “so easily”.
“I call her crooked Hillary,” he said. “She’s crooked. She’d be a horrible president. She knows nothing about job creation.
“Her husband signed (free trade agreement) NAFTA, which destroyed this country economically.”
