GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump isn’t backing away from his contention that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is playing the “woman’s card,” saying Thursday that Mrs. Clinton’s gender is the primary thing she has going for her.

“She is playing the woman’s card,” Mr. Trump said on NBC’s “Today” program. “Everything she says is about the woman’s card, and frankly, all I’m doing is bringing out the obvious.”

“I think the only thing she’s got going is the fact that she’s a woman,” he said. “She has done a terrible job in so many different ways. You look at Libya, you look at some of the things that she’s done are just absolutely disastrous.”

“No, I would say the primary thing that she has going is that she’s a woman, and she is playing that card like I have never seen anybody play it before,” Mr. Trump said.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign has embraced the attack, highlighting comments from her victory speech Tuesday evening responding to Mr. Trump.

“Now, the other day Mr. Trump accused me of playing the quote, woman card,” Mrs. Clinton said. “Well, if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.”

Mr. Trump said in his own victory speech Tuesday that if Mrs. Clinton were a man, he didn’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote.
