After Hillary accused him of being a sexist, Trump said he “had no choice” but to bring up her husband’s past infidelities.
“She came out with the sexism which is so nonsense, but she’s playing that card, and then I hit her back, and I talked about her husband and the abuse of women and the tremendous abuse — no, it’s tremendous abuse, it’s tremendous abuse,” he said at a rally earlier this week.
