In an interview with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton was asked to respond to Donald Trump saying if she were a man she’d only have 5% of the support she currently has. Clinton called such attacks “familiar to a lot of women” and said “we will claim what is rightfully ours.”
“Donald Trump is out saying if you were a man, you would only have 5% of the support that you have, that you only have the support because you are a woman. Think about that,” Mitchell posed to Clinton.
“He should take a look at the numbers,” Clinton advised Trump. “I am leading him by millions of votes. If we are talking about the contest between him and me before we get to the general election, I feel pretty good about it.”
