With the election year just two days to start, GOP hopeful Donald Trump has shifted his focus away from his primary opponents and onto the Republicans’ likely foe in the general: Hillary Clinton. After several attacks and abused from Trump to the Clintons and vice versa, Trump is focusing his attacks on Hillary, whom he believes will cling the Democratic ticket ahead of Senator Bernie Sanders.
Speaking at a rally in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Tuesday afternoon, Trump, according to TIME called the former Secretary of State “theatrical” and said, “She just gives me a headache.” “For the last week she’s been hitting me really hard with the women card,” Trump said. “And I had to say OK, that’s enough” “I’ll tell you who doesn’t like Hillary,” he continued. “Women don’t like Hillary. I see it all the time.”
Trump loves a woman president but not Clinton
“I love, love, love having a woman president,” Trump said. “It can’t be her. She’s horrible. Trump, who is closing out the year with a dominant lead over the rest of the GOP field, has increasingly aimed his fire at Clinton, who has solidified her own lead among Democrats. The back-and-forth has gotten really nasty in recent days, with Trump last week telling a rally that Barack Obama “schlonged” her in the 2008 election, and Clinton firing back that Trump has a “penchant for sexism.” ” I shouldn’t do it. I just have to turn off the television sometimes. She just gives me a headache,” Trump said, before remarking, “Although last night I think I gave her a big headache.” Later in his speech, Trump remarked that “the last thing [Clinton] wants in her whole life” is to face him in a general election. Trump is already positioning himself as the GOP candidate.
Trump closes the year with more bluffs and lashes
Trump mocked the State Department’s declaration of “bringing peace” to Syria as one of its biggest achievements of the year. “The level of stupidity is incredible. I’m telling you, I used to use the word incompetent, now I just call them stupid. I went to an Ivy League school. I’m very highly educated. I know words, I have the best words, but there’s no better word than stupid,” Trump remarked. “Right? There is none. There is none. There’s no, there’s no, there’s no word like that.”
