Trump defends Clinton comments: ‘It’s not sexist, it’s true’

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump defended his claim that Hillary Clinton is only performing well in the Democratic primaries because she’s a woman.

{mosads}“It’s not sexist. It’s true,” Trump told ABC News Wednesday. “If she were a man, she’d get less than 5 percent,” he added, rehashing what he said in his victory speech following a five-state primary sweep Tuesday night.

“She’s a bad candidate. She’s a flawed candidate that frankly … is not going to do very well in the election, and I look forward to showing that.”

Trump drew backlash Tuesday when he credited Clinton’s successes to her gender.

“The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card,” Trump said during his speech Tuesday.

Clinton shot back Wednesday on Twitter, saying the candidate’s comments just show his “true colors.”

“After a week of reports that Trump would change his tone heading into the general election, once again he’s letting his true colors show,” Clinton tweeted.
