Donald Trump spoke by telephone Tuesday with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. Trump denied calling Bill Clinton a racist, saying that he merely passed on what the Obama campaign said about him in 2008.
The New York businessman then went on to explain that Clinton was responsible for “a lot of abuse of women” citing the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Donald Trump: If you look at the different situations. Of course, we could name many of them. I could get you a list and have it sent to your office in two seconds. But, certainly there was a lot of abuse of women. You look at whether it was Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones or many of them. And they certainly will be fair game. Certainly if they play the woman’s card with respect to me. That will be fair game.
Savannah Guthrie: You mention Monica Lewinsky. Are you saying an alleged extramarital affair which he has now admitted. Is that fair game?
Donald Trump: It was not alleged. Was that alleged? I don’t think that was alleged.
Savannah Guthrie: He’s admitted it.
Donald Trump: You don’t have to use the word “alleged.”
He says Bill Clinton is “certainly fair game” if his wife, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, “plays the woman card.”
