During a campaign rally in Hilton Head Island, S.C. on Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump responded to recent remarks made by Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, who accused the real estate mogul of having “a penchant for sexism.”
“Nobody respects women more than Donald Trump. That I can tell you,” he began.
“You know, when [Clinton] said that, I had no choice ‘cause I didn’t start it. I did have to mention her husband’s situation,” he added, referring to a series of comments he made on Twitter reminding his followers of Mr. Clinton’s history of marital infidelity and alleged sexual assault.
“We have to do it,” Trump continued. “You can’t let people push you around. You can’t let people tell lies. You can’t do it.”
He went on to say that if the 2016 general election happens to be Trump versus Clinton, America will witness “the greatest voter turnout in the history of this country.”
Trump added that his high poll numbers – in spite of poor publicity – demonstrate how voters are "fed up" with the media.
“They’re so fed up with the system. They’re fed up with those guys back there – the media. They’re the worst,” he fired.
