Trump said that his recent remarks attacking Clinton’s gender and China’s currency manipulation are not controversial.

“She is playing the woman card,” he said, doubling-down on his repeated criticism of the former first lady. "If she didn’t play the woman card, she would have absolutely no chance of winning.

“As far as China is concerned, everyone knows that’s true,” Trump added, referencing his remarks on Sunday that Beijing is guilty of “rape” in how it treats the U.S. "I haven’t heard anything negative.

“I think I’m saying what people want to hear. I’m winning with the voters. I’m leading [the Republican presidential primary] by millions of votes.”

Trump later said that Cuomo was trying to generate controversy.

“Don’t tell me about that,” he said when Cuomo suggested the former secretary of State's campaign would jump on the billionaire's comments regarding his experience in foreign negotiations.

“You are creating the phony pushback,” Trump added. "There’s no pushback. I’ve done a lot of traveling [and] a lot of deals. I have a lot of experience.”

Trump has repeatedly accused the media of treating him unfairly, arguing that they exaggerate protests against him and distort his remarks.
