Hillary Clinton gave her first television interview since announcing that she is running for president and the longtime politician addressed a wide range of topics including immigration reform, Saturday Night Live and, oh, Donald Trump, of course.

In her chat with Brianna Keilar, CNN's Senior White House Correspondent, Clinton admitted that she's "very disappointed" in Trump's latest comments.

"I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and with the Republican Party for not responding immediately and saying, 'Enough, stop it.'"

"They don't want to provide a path to citizenship. They range across a spectrum of being either grudgingly welcome or hostile towards immigrants," she explained. "I think that's a mistake. I think that we know we're not going to deport 11 million or 12 million people. We shouldn't be breaking up families.

"It's good for us.  It's good economically.  It's good for the taxes that will be legally collected.  It's good for the children, so that they can go as far as their hard work and talent will take them…I am 100% behind comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship."

Clinton also touched upon plans for the new $10 bill, saying, "I want a woman on the bill.  And I think that it might be easier to change the $20 than it is to change the $10.  But we'll see.  And I don't like the idea that as a compromise you would basically have two people on the same bill.  One would be a woman.  That sounds pretty second class to me.  So I think a woman should have her own bill.  And it may be more appropriate to look at the $20 than the $10.  I don't know.  We'll see."

And lastly, the presidential hopeful offered her two cents on who she thinks is the best Hillary Clinton between SNL's Amy Poehler and Kate McKinnon.

"Amy's a friend of mine. And Kate's doing a great job. You're not going to get me to pick one or the other. I think I'm the best Hillary Clinton, to be honest."

We think so, too.
