GOP nominee Donald Trump doubled and tripled down on his Cuomo verbal trashing of Hillary Clinton Monday, calling her ‘very nasty’ in response to comments she made toward Trump saying she was used to dealing with men who go “off the reservation.”
Appearing on CNN’s New Day, Trump said “Well, she has been taking a lot of heat for that statement. Not from you, obviously, but they do call it the Clinton Network.”
“But she has taken from others a lot of heat having to do with that statement. And I think it’s a very harsh statement.” Trump added.
“If I made that statement about women, it’d be front page headlines,” he continued. “It’s a very demeaning statement.”
Chris Cuomo interrupted Trump, claiming that the billionaire candidate “basically did” make that statement when he said “all she’s got is the woman’s card.”
“Look, women want strength. They want security. They want to have strong military,” Trump said. “They want to know that our country is being protected. They want to know about women’s issues, women’s health issues. I’m going to do a better job for women than Hillary can do.”
“I won’t even bring up the fact that the Indians have gone wild on this statement, and you know this,” Trump responded. “They think it’s a disastrous statement and they want a retraction. I’m not going to get into that.”
“Well, you just did get into that,” Cuomo retorted. “I had not really heard that. You did bring it up.”
It seems that Trump’s comments did not go unnoticed by the Clinton camp, given that Amanda Renteria, Clinton’s national political director, tweeted to say Hillary “meant no disrespect to Native Americans” with the comments.
Trump shot back with a tweet of his own:
Crooked Hillary Clinton said she is used to "dealing with men who get off the reservation." Actually, she has done poorly with such men!

In a separate appearance on Fox News Sunday, Trump again doubled down on the ‘woman’s card comment’, noting “Even women don’t like her. They don’t like her. It’s the woman’s card, and she plays it, and I’ll let you know in about six months, if she plays it, well. It’s true. If she weren’t a woman, she wouldn’t even be in this race.”
“I’m my own strategist, and I like what I said, and it’s true. I only tell the truth, and that’s why people vote for me,” Trump declared.
