Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday revived previous attacks on Bill and Hillary Clinton over the former’s personal conduct, accusing her of being an “enabler” by attacking those who revealed what Bill is all about.
“Nobody in this country – and maybe in the history of this country, politically – was worse than Bill Clinton with women. He was a disaster. He was a disaster,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Eugene, Oregon. “I mean, there’s never been anybody like this.”
Facing the likelihood that he and Hillary Clinton will face each other in the general election, Trump has escalated escalated his attacks on the former secretary of state.
“She’s been the total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives. She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler,” he said. “What she did to a lot of those women was disgraceful.”
The real estate mogul several weeks ago suggested that Clinton relied on the “women’s card”
“Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the women’s card,” Trump said during a news conference at Trump Tower in April. “And the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her.”
