Leading GOP candidate for the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump on Sunday accused Democratic Presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton of unfairly trading on her gender while declaring Bill Clinton to be “fair game” as the former president hits the trail to campaign for his wife. This will not be the first involvement of the former president in his wife’s campaign, as he has done that in 2008 when Hillary lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama. BIll Clinton has been raising money and offering campaign strategies and advice to his wife, but is planning to do more than that for the former Secretary of State.
War of words continues
Following a comment credited to Donald Trump during one of his campaign that Clinton got “schlonged” in the 2008 Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton responded last week to Trump’s “schlonged” remark by telling The Des Moines Register it wasn’t “the first time he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism.”
“She’s playing the woman’s card,” Trump said during an interview on Fox News, before turning his attention to Bill Clinton, Hillary’s husband, declaring him “fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled because of all the things that she’s talking to me about.”
Why it is Hillary Clinton
The recent development of blames and counter-accusation between Trump and Hillary, definitely has a lot more than what is seen on the surface. Trump, as controversial as he is, is noted for hitting out at his rivals in the Presidential race, both in the GOP and the Democratic circle. The back and forth has allowed Trump to look beyond the GOP primary and begin engaging with Clinton, who he said he believes will almost certainly be the Democratic nominee. according to the Politico, Trump said: “I don’t think it’s going to be Bernie Sanders,” “I’m more prepared to run against Hillary because I’ve been thinking about that.”
On Sunday, Trump also defended a message he sent Saturday on Twitter that said: “Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism, so inappropriate!” Trump said he considers Bill Clinton “fair game.”
