Trump: Hillary Clinton Labeling Me Sexist Made Attacks On Bill Clinton "Open Season"

|

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Two days ago the Clinton team said they were going to punch back, they were going to fight you. There was this back and forth because Hillary Clinton suggested that you were sexist. You responded using her words against her husband. It seems, if you look at the Clintons yesterday on the campaign trail, that they’ve backed out. Is that how you see it?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, I don’t see it any way. I just look -- I was mentioned --

SCARBOROUGH: But they’re not attacking you anymore.

TRUMP: -- I was mentioned -- I was attacked --

SCARBOROUGH: Right.

TRUMP: -- nine times during the debate, the Democrat debate. Hillary called me sexist, that I had an inclination. What does she know about me? I had an inclination. When she said that, I said, well, your husband’s now campaigning, it’s open season. Now, if he wasn’t campaigning, maybe it would be different, and if he weren’t a past president it would be totally different. It would be --

SCARBOROUGH: Right.

TRUMP: -- you know, I’d leave the spouse out of it. But he’s now campaigning for her. So, all I did was, you know, recite history. Don’t forget, don’t forget.

SCARBOROUGH: Well, Ruth Marcus and the --

TRUMP: He lost his law license, he wasn’t allowed -- he was impeached. He wasn’t allowed to practice law. He settled for a tremendous amount of money. I mean, you know, there’s a lot things going on there, and she calls me sexist.

SCARBOROUGH: But -- but -- but haven’t they backed down? Hillary won’t -- Hillary won’t even respond –

TRUMP: I don’t -- I don’t call it a back down. Yes, it looked like that, but I don’t call it that because tomorrow they can start it up. I’m just saying this, it’s fair game, when they attack me I’m going to attack them. Now, if they don’t I would leave that off the table.

SCARBOROUGH: I want to be specific here, because a lot of people have made misrepresentations in the press over the past several days claiming that she brought up ISIS and attacked you, and then you responded on Bill Clinton’s past history. You’re saying today you’re only going to bring up Bill Clinton’s past history as a possible sexual harasser if she accuses you of being sexist.

DONALD TRUMP: Sure, that’s what it’s all about. That was what it was.
