GOP president Donald Trump is firing back at Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s statements regarding Trump’s comments on illegal immigration.

In a news release, Trump says:

Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said “Mexico is sending”— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.

Trump said Clinton is “desperate” and “sad” as well as “obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled given the absolute accuracy of my statement.”

“She speaks about ‘my tone’ and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice— it’s about being competent,” he added.

Trump said Clinton should spend more time addressing her scandals than discussing him.

Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that JEB is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump.
