Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has taken the rivalry between himself and the Hillary Clinton campaign to a new level this week, again citing allegations of rape against Bill Clinton, and even insinuating that the Clintons may have been involved in the death of a former aide.
Trump released a video Monday which features Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey accusing Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them.
The video then cuts to an audio clip of Hillary laughing and asks “Is Hillary really protecting women?”
Democratic aligned groups have accused Trump of attempting to distract from his own attitudes toward women.
“It’s these types of attacks that only draw more attention from Trump’s extreme and hateful worldview toward women.” commented Marcy Stech, vice president of communications at Emily’s List.
Trump says he is responding like for like with the Clintons telling The Washington Post“They said things about me which were very nasty. And I don’t want to play that game at all. I don’t want to play it — at all. But they said things about me that were very nasty. And, you know, as long as they do that, you know, I will play at whatever level I have to play at. I think I’ve proven that.”
Trump has also brought up the case of former White House aide Vincent Foster, who was ruled to have committed suicide by federal investigators. However, many conspiracy theorists believe there was foul play involved in his death, and that the Clintons may have been involved.
“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said of Foster. “He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.” Trump added, describing the circumstances as “very serious” and “very fishy.”
“I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.” Trump added.
“It’s the one thing with her, whether it’s Whitewater or whether it’s Vince or whether it’s Benghazi. It’s always a mess with Hillary,” Trump said in the interview.
Appearing on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News show Monday, Trump defended his tactics, referring to the Clintons as “dirty players”.
“I don’t like doing that, but I have no choice,” Trump said. “When she hits me on things, I just have no choice. So you have to do it. It’s unfair. And you know they’re dirty players. They’ve been dirty players historically. And I have to fight back the way I have to fight back.”
Senior Donald Trump aide Stephen Miller stated last week that Trump’s attacks on the Clintons are going to be amped up as the election approaches “Because Hillary Clinton would be an extremely dangerous person to put in the White House.”
