Trump: I’m ‘Misquoted’ In Pro-Clinton Ad Featuring My Remarks On Women (VIDEO)

Priorities USA Trump ad women

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday homed in on one quote from a super PAC ad attacking his comments on women in order to bash his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as a liar.

The 30-second ad, from pro-Clinton group Priorities USA, features ordinary women mouthing Trump’s past remarks about how he thinks flat-chested women aren’t attractive and wanting to date his daughter Ivanka. The last quote featured in the ad, spoken by an elderly woman, is, “You can tell them to go fuck themselves.”

Trump criticized the inclusion of this line in a string of tweets, saying that it was actually directed at China, not women.

As The Hill reported, Priorities USA plans to spend $6 million on ads against Trump in the coming weeks. The “Does Donald Trump really speak for you?” ad is just the first.

Trump last week made a similar effort to fact-check a web video by pro-Clinton super PAC Correct The Record, which also focused on his unflattering comments about women.

A Fox News host mistakenly said a quote featured in the ad, in which Trump says a woman who attended his wedding ate “like a pig,” was about Clinton. Trump pointed out on Twitter that he’d directed the insult at comedian Rosie O’Donnell.
