Washington: Republican front-runner Donald Trump has said Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is playing the “woman card” to try to get elected president.
“I call her ‘crooked Hillary’ because she’s crooked, and the only thing she’s got is the woman card. That’s all she’s got … it’s a weak card in her hands,” Trump said on “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday morning ahead of primaries in five states — Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland and Rhode Island.
Trump won in all the five states while Clinton bettered her opponents in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut. Her main rival, Vermont junior senator Bernie Sanders, picked up his sole victory in Rhode Island, The Washington Post reported.
The business mogul said Clinton is using her gender to pander to the electorate, and that the “woman card” just “may be enough” for her.
“I’d love to see a woman president, but she’s the wrong person. She’s a disaster,” Trump said.
Trump has a history of making incendiary remarks about women. Last year, he said “Fox News” anchor Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” after she questioned him about his history of calling women “disgusting animals” and “dogs”.
Last month, he retweeted an unflattering image of rival Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi, contrasted with his own wife, retired model Melania Trump.
Trump also had words for actress Lena Dunham, who said she would move to Vancouver if Trump is elected.
“She’s a B actor and has no, you know, mojo,” Trump said.
