Trump Not Worried About His Marriages Coming Up: ‘I Have A Very Good History’

Donald Trump has awkwardly gone after Hillary Clinton over Bill Clinton’s sex scandals even though his own affair in the 1990s was widely publicized. But the Republican nominee isn’t worried about his marriages coming up during the campaign, telling New Hampshire television station NH1 on Thursday that he has a “very good history.”

When asked by NH1 whether he would bring up Bill Clinton in the second debate, the Republican nominee first explained why he refrained from doing so in the first debate.

“She was very nasty to me. And I was going to do it. And I saw Chelsea sitting out in the audience, and I just didn’t want to go there. I thought it would be too disrespectful,” he said.

And when asked again if he would raise Bill Clinton’s scandals in the next debate, Trump replied, “We’ll see what happens.”

Then NH1 asked Trump if his own marital history would be “fair game.”

“I guess,” he responded. “But it’s a lot different that his. That I can tell you. We have a situation where we have a president who was a disaster and he was ultimately impeached over it, in a sense for lying. And so we’ll see whether or not we discuss it.”

NH1 asked Trump if he was worried about his marital history.

“No, not at all. I have a very good history,” he replied.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
