Donald Trump self-destructed Thursday morning at the final and last debate with Hillary Clinton, the candidate of the Democrats, when he said into the microphone, that Clinton ‘is a nasty woman’.
Moments earlier in response to the testimonies of sexual assault by many women against him, Trump said no one respects women better than he does.
Just when the debate was winding down, Donald Trump said Hillary Clinton was “such a nasty woman” while she was answering a question about how she would raise taxes on the rich to tackle debt and entitlements if she were to become president.
“My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s, assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it,” Clinton said.
“Such a nasty woman,” Trump said into the microphone while Clinton was talking.
She continued her answer without acknowledging the insult.
Donald Trump had accused Hillary Clinton of being responsible for getting the women who alleged sexual misconduct against him.
“Those stories have been largely debunked. Those people, I don’t know those people. I have a feeling how they came. I believe it was her campaign that did it,” Trump said, responding to a question about allegations he groped and kissed women without their consent.
Trump has repeatedly denied all of the allegations against him and CNN has not independently verified the claims made against the Republican presidential nominee.
Trump said at the debate that “he didn’t even apologise” to his wife Melania Trump because he didn’t do anything to the women.
“I didn’t know any of these women, I didn’t see these women,” Trump said. “I think they want either fame, or her campaign did it. And I think it’s her campaign.”
Clinton, the Democratic nominee, slammed Trump for his response to the allegations.
“Well at the last debate, we heard Donald talking about what he did to women and after that a number of women have come forward saying that’s exactly what he did to them,” Clinton responded. “Now what was his response? Well, he held a number of big rallies where he said he could not have possibly done those things to those women because they are not attractive enough.”
“I did not say that,” Trump interrupted.
