Donald Trump might have held back on bringing up former President Clinton’s extramarital affairs during Monday’s debate, but Mr. Trump’s deputy campaign manager on Wednesday labeled Hillary Clinton an “enabler” who attacked women.
“Clearly, Mr. Trump held his tongue,” Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said on “Fox and Friends.”
“I think that if you look at Hillary Clinton’s background and if you look at her being an enabler, really, in the ‘90s and really attacking these women, it goes against everything that she now tries to spout as a candidate for president,” Mr. Bossie said.
“She’ll say and do anything — those are Barack Obama’s words, not mine, that she’ll say and do anything to become president of the United States, and I think we’re seeing that now,” he said.
Mr. Trump has previously called Mrs. Clinton an “enabler” of her husband’s behavior and said on CNN in January that Mr. Clinton was “one of the great women abusers of all time.”
The GOP nominee declined to launch such attacks during Monday’s debate, saying afterward that he held back because he didn’t want to “embarrass” Mrs. Clinton.
“As I say, he can run his campaign however he chooses, and I will continue to talk about what I want to do for the American people,” Mrs. Clinton told reporters Tuesday when asked about Mr. Trump’s touting his restraint in the area of the Clintons’ personal matters.
