CNN host Chris Cuomo on Wednesday asked presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump how he expected to win with a strategy of reducing Hillary Clinton to “just a woman.”
After Trump won big in five states on Tuesday, he argued in his victory speech that Clinton was playing “the woman card” and that she would only get 5 percent of the vote if she were a man.
“Do you think that’s a winning formula for saying ‘the woman card’ is all that Hillary Clinton has?” Cuomo asked Trump on Wednesday.
“Yes,” Trump insisted. “She is a woman, she is playing the woman card left and right. She didn’t play it last time [in 2008] with Obama but she is playing it much harder this time. And she will be called on it.”
“How do you call someone on being a woman?” Cuomo wondered.
“You just tell them they’re playing the woman’s card,” the front-runner stated.
“But what does that mean?” Cuomo pressed.
“If she didn’t, she would do very poorly,” Trump opined. “I know it because I think if she were a man and she was the way she is, she would get virtually no votes.”
“It sounds dismissive of her gender,” the CNN host observed.
“When I came out I was competing against 17 capable people,” Trump said. “I was competing against 17 very capable people — and a woman. And what happened was one by one they disappeared.”

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
