Trump: Clinton’s ‘Off The Reservation’ Remark Was ‘Demeaning’ To ‘Indians’

Donald Trump on Monday morning hit Hillary Clinton for offending “the Indians” by using the phrase “off the reservation” while discussing Trump’s attacks on her throughout the campaign.

“The way she talks about, I can handle men who get off the reservation, I think is a very demeaning statement. I won’t even bring up the fact the Indians have gone wild on that statement. You know that? The Indians have said that that statement is a disastrous statement, and they want a retraction,” Trump said during an interview on CNN’s “New Day.”

He also told CNN that it was a “very nasty statement to men” and argued in a Monday morning tweet that Clinton “does poorly” with men who attack her.

During a Friday interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Clinton said that she was used to attacks from male politicians.

“I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get ‘off the reservation’ in the way they behave and how they speak,” she said. “I’m not going to deal with their temper tantrums or efforts to try to provoke me.”

The Clinton campaign’s political director, Amanda Renteria, apologized for Clinton’s comments after backlash from the Native American community.
