OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Hillary Clinton will be heading back to California on Thursday for five days of Get Out the Vote events.
The former Secretary of State had a low key day on Monday, marching in the Memorial Day parade in her home-town of Chappaqua, New York.
KTVU's Gasia Mikaelian spoke with Clinton by phone Monday on a range of issues about the campaign including why she has called Donald Trump "dangerous."
"It's not a reality show, it's not just politics, this is serious. The entire world looks to the President of the United States for leadership and stability and that's going to be one of the main contrasts between me and my record and the kind of leadership I would provide, if elected, and what Donald Trump represents," she said.
Clinton also talked about her time in Oakland last week saying, "I had the best visit. I really enjoyed talking with so many people from Oakland who are determined to just make things better for everybody."
Clinton recently canceled some planned campaign events in New Jersey to come to California ahead of the primary. "I think the main reason is because I want to focus meeting directly with as many voters as possible across California. You know being from New York I have spent a lot of time in New Jersey, I feel very knowledgeable about a lot of issues that are facing that state. But as I heard just the other day at the meeting that I had at the Home of Chicken and Waffles, there's a lot going on in California. A lot of really positive energy, good ideas, but also some big challenges. Everything from the drought to immigration and the like so I am proud to be campaigning across California and talking, and listening mostly, to what people are telling me about what they think the next President should be doing to be a really good partner for California," she said.
KTVU asked Clinton, "Some of Donald Trump's attacks against you and your husband have been very personal - does that upset you emotionally or are you somehow able to set it aside?"
Clinton responded, "It's something that Republicans have done for a very, very long time. There's nothing new in it. People understand that. I think voters are smart enough to figure it out for themselves. What's really at stake in this election is the future of every family in America. And what I'm going to be talking about is how my economic plan is so superior to Trump's because I have a plan to help create jobs and raise income."
Analysts say a win for Clinton in New Jersey's primary on June 7th could give her the delegates she needs.
