GOP's Donald Trump calls Bill Clinton a 'great abuser'

Donald Trump escalated the growing conflict over sexual politics between the Clinton and Trump campaigns on Wednesday when he called Bill Clinton "one of the great abusers of the world".

In a nationally televised interview on Dateline NBC in 1999, Juanita Broaddrick, a nursing home administrator, alleged that Bill Clinton had raped her while he was running for governor two decades prior. But they could pose a long-term risk for Trump, some observers warn.

But it's the Clinton campaign that appears to have the most to lose if the plot loses its focus, while thrice-married Trump, who once defended Bill Clinton's "private life" and grandly promised that "nobody respects women more than Donald Trump" has described his own private life as fair game to reporters.

Trump has predicted that a general election matchup with Clinton could lead to one of the largest voter turnouts in recent history. After several attacks and abused from Trump to the Clintons and vice versa, Trump is focusing his attacks on Hillary, whom he believes will cling the Democratic ticket ahead of Senator Bernie Sanders.

Trump said Tuesday that his kind words in 2008 were his "obligation" as a "world-class businessman".

In a few days, Bill Clinton will head to New Hampshire to campaign on behalf of his wife. Still, 22 percent remain unsure whom to support.

Clinton's deputy communications director Christina Reynolds said Monday that Clinton "won't be bullied" by Trump and plans to "stand up to him, as she has from the beginning of his campaign" when he insults women and other groups. "It will be wider than the Grand Canyon".

It was the year Clinton proved herself a very capable debater, watched Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren pass on possible presidential campaigns, and saw Beltway chatter about "scandals" quietly evaporate into nothing. "It was my obligation to get along with all politicians", he wrote.

Hillary Clinton, who has been embracing the possibility of becoming the country's first female president, has also benefited when she has been perceived to have been unfairly attacked by men.
