Donald Trump: Hillary constantly plays ‘the woman card — it’s the only way she may get elected’

Published

Donald Trump has taken another shot at Hillary Clinton, telling CBS’s Face the Nation in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday: “She’s constantly playing the woman card. It’s the only way she may get elected.”

The Republican presidential frontrunner also said Clinton, who leads the Democratic race as the primaries approach, had during her time as secretary of state in the Obama administration “caused tremendous death with incompetent decisions” regarding the Middle East.

“And all of this has led to Isis,” he said. “All of this has led to the migration. All of this has led to tremendous death and destruction. And she, for the most part, was in charge of it, along with Obama.”

In the interview, which was recorded on Friday night – before the emergence of an al-Shaabab recruitment video which used footage of Trump saying Muslims should be barred from the US – the Republican continued recent attacks in which he has focused on Clinton’s husband, Bill , and his relationships with other women.

“She’s constantly playing the woman card,” he said. “It’s the only way she may get elected… Personally, I’m not sure that anybody else other than me is going to beat her. And I think she’s a flawed candidate.

“… It hasn’t been a very pretty picture for her or for Bill. Because I’m the only one that’s willing to talk about his problems. I mean, what he did and what he has gone through I think is frankly terrible, especially if she wants to play the woman card.”

Excerpts of the interview in which Trump rejected President Obama’s plans to address gun control reform via executive actions were released by CBS on Saturday. The remarks about Clinton were excerpted by the website Politico on Sunday.

“She is pandering to the public,” Trump continued. “And she’s pandering to women. And when she did it with me, she talked about sexist. And I said, ‘Me?’ I have more respect for women by far than Hillary Clinton has. And I will do more for women than Hillary Clinton will. I will do far more, including the protection of our country.”

Trump addressed such foreign policy concerns in a rally in Biloxi, Mississippi on Saturday night, telling his audience: “ Hillary Clinton created Isis with Obama .” He did not address the al-Shabaab recruitment video. At the last Democratic debate, in December, Clinton claimed Islamic militants were using footage of Trump in such fashion. At the time, no such videos could be found.

“She caused a lot of the problems that we have right now,” Trump said on CBS. “I mean, the entire world has been upset. The entire world, it’s a different place.

“During Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s term, she’s done a horrible job. She’s caused so many of the problems. And let me tell you something. She has caused death. She has caused tremendous death with incompetent decisions. I was against the war in Iraq. I wasn’t a politician, but I was against the war in Iraq. She voted for the war in Iraq.”

Trump continued: “Look at Libya. That was her baby. Look. I mean, I’m not even talking about the ambassador and the people with the ambassador – young, wonderful people. With messages coming in by the hundreds, and she’s not even responding. I’m not talking about that.

“… If we would have never done anything in the Middle East, we would have a much safer world right now. Getting rid of Saddam Hussein, I’m not saying he was a good person. He was a bad person. But what we have now is far worse, OK?

“And all of this has led to Isis. All of this has led to the migration. All of this has led to tremendous death and destruction. And she, for the most part, was in charge of it, along with Obama.”

Trump also told CBS he would continue “giving rallies” after he became president, though “I would certainly probably not talk as much”.

To boost his attempt to become president, he said he would spend “$2m on ads per week at least” in Iowa, which kicks off the election with its caucuses in 1 February.

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.

In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."

......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!
