Trump’s comments mark the latest escalation of his war of words with the Clinton family over gender and sexism.

He previously accused Bill Clinton of having sexist tendencies last weekend after reports emerged that the former president plans on campaigning with his wife next year. “Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign, but he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism — so inappropriate!” he tweeted last Saturday.

Hillary Clinton charged the outspoken billionaire with displaying his own “penchant for sexism” during an interview last week.

“It’s not the first time he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism,” she said of Trump’s personal attacks on her on Dec. 23. "I really deplore the tone of his campaign, the inflammatory rhetoric he is using to divide people, and his going after groups of people with hateful, incendiary rhetoric."

Trump shocked listeners last week by arguing Hillary Clinton "got schlonged” by then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.

He has since denied that the phrase is vulgar. Trump has claimed that it describes overwhelming defeat instead of anything inappropriate.

The real estate tycoon has frequently dodged accusations of misogyny since launching his presidential campaign this year. Trump has countered that he is merely tough on his critics regardless of their gender.
