GOP nominee Donald Trump is staying on message.

While campaigning in New Hampshire — the state where he won his first big primary victory — he continuously bashed his rival Hillary Clinton.

“She short circuited — she used the term,” Trump stated about Clinton during a campaign rally in Windham, New Hampshire — a state where he’s currently seven points behind the former secretary of state. “She took a little short circuit in the brain.”

“I think that the people of this country don’t want somebody that’s going to short circuit up here,” the New Yorker stated, pointing towards his head, adding, “Not as your president!”

Trump was referencing Clinton admitting to short circuiting some of her answers about her email scandal.

“I was pointing out in both of those instances, that Director Comey had said that my answers in my FBI interview were truthful. That really is the bottom line here,” Clinton said on Friday, referencing the FBI investigation into her use of a private email scandal as secretary of state. “What I told the FBI, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what I have said publicly. I may have short-circuited and for that I will try to clarify.”

“Her greatest achievement is getting out of trouble,” Trump jabbed.

He also said Clinton’s desire to increase the number of refugees from the Middle East without properly vetting them will destroy the United States.

“She will cause the destruction of our country from within,” Trump declared. “ISIS is looking, folks. They dream of Hillary Clinton.”

He also went after Clinton’s crowd size at her campaign events, saying, “ Nobody shows up!”

“Hillary’s people have no spirit,” he added. “I don’t even think you can even think of allowing this woman to become the President of the United States — I don’t think so.”
