Given his recent comments about Bill Clinton, Donald Trump on Tuesday night told a reporter that his own personal behavior would also be fair game during the presidential campaign.

Trump this week alluded to the Monica Lewinsky scandal in response to Hillary Clinton accusing him of sexism, and he said that her husband’s past would be “fair game” during the campaign.

On Tuesday evening, a reporter asked Trump if his “personal indiscretions” would also be fair game, according to video captured by CNN.

“Yes, they would be,” Trump responded before defending his decision to go after Bill Clinton.

“Frankly, Hillary brought up the whole thing with ‘sexist,’ and all I did was reverse it on her because she’s got a major problem, happens to be right in her house,” Trump said. “So, if she wants to do that, we’re going to go right after the president, the ex-president. We’ll see how it all comes out, and I feel very confident that it’ll come out very well for us.”
