Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in an interview aired Sunday and called her husband and former President Bill Clinton “an abuser.”
Trump didn’t let up during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” and mentioned the reports of sexual abuse against Bill.
“She’s married to an abuser,” Trump said. “A woman claimed rape, and all sorts of things. I mean, horrible things.”
Host Chuck Todd moved the conversation toward whether it was appropriate for him to attack Bill over his infidelities. Todd noted that Trump’s first divorce was “all over the tabloids.”
“But, you know what?” Trump responded. “I wasn’t the President of the United States. And I wasn’t dealing in the Oval Office, all right? A big difference. I wasn’t the President. And my first wife thinks I’m great.”
