Donald Trump Accuses Hillary Clinton of Playing 'The Woman Card'
Donald Trump is ratcheting up his battle against Hillary Clinton by accusing her of playing what he called "the woman card."
Trump also went after Bill Clinton, pointing to the former President's history of cheating and his White House scandal with Monica Lewinski.
Trump went on to tweet:
Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE'S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2015
I will do far more for women than Hillary, and I will keep our country safe, something which she will not be able to do-no strength/stamina!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2015
If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2015
This comes after Clinton’s remarks that Trump had "demonstrated a penchant for sexism,” which she said was evidenced by the comments he's made during his campaign for the White House.
Trump fired the first shot in his latest barrage over the weekend, taking to Twitter with what some might call a threat.
Hillary, when you complain about "a penchant for sexism," who are you referring to. I have great respect for women. BE CAREFUL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2015
Others, like Congresswoman and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, are coming to Hillary’s defense, hinting that Trump is walking on dangerous turf.
Wasserman-Schultz said on Meet the Press on Sunday: “Anyone who attacks Bill Clinton does so at their own peril.”
Despite the ugly new turn in the campaign, both families were out and about over the holiday weekend.
The Clintons were seen with their pregnant daughter, Chelsea, pushing one-year-old daughter Charlotte in a baby buggy.
Trump, along with wife, Melania, and other family members, showed up at a Palm Beach church for midnight mass on Christmas Eve.
