Top Donald Trump aide Paul Manafort says the GOP nominee has a special appeal for women whose “husbands can’t afford paying for the family bills.”

In a Thursday interview at the Republican National Convention, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked Manafort how he planned to keep the Trump campaign’s strategy of intensely criticizing Hillary Clinton from alienating women.

“It depends on which women you’re talking about,” Manafort said. “Many women in this country feel they can’t afford their lives. Their husbands can’t afford paying for the family bills.”

“You said women are concerned about their husbands’ income?” Matthews pressed.

Manafort grinned. “I can speak personally to that,” he replied.
