The Republican primary front-runner has been accused of misogyny for using the Yiddish term.
Trump said the term is “not vulgar,” citing a National Public Radio report in 2011 that used the term to describe Walter Mondale’s defeat in the 1984 presidential campaign.
He also said it was “too disgusting” to see Clinton walking back on stage from a bathroom break at Saturday’s Democratic primary debate.
