GOP presidential frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump tells Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that the women who former President Bill Clinton has allegedly targeted, including Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and others, have “gone through a lot.”
When asked to respond to Willey’s comments to Breitbart Jerusalem Bureau editor Aaron Klein—where Willey thanked Trump for bringing the issue back to the forefront—Trump said he was “honored” that Willey thanked him.
“Thank you very much, Mr. Trump, for asking the right question at the right time. And please keep asking more,” Willey, who has accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, stated.
She also called for more alleged victims to come forward:
I would just like to encourage any woman who has suffered at the hands of Bill Clinton to please try to find the courage and bravery to come forth. Because it’s okay now. Nobody can hurt you now. It’s as simple as that,” Willey said. “Nobody can touch you now. The word is out. You will be okay but you will be doing the right thing for all the right reasons and you will be helping your fellow sisters.
Meanwhile, Juanita Broaddrick—who has accused Bill Clinton of rape—told The Hill newspaper she likes Trump, even though she’s not a member of either major political party.
“He says the things I like to hear,” Broaddrick said.
Trump, in response to both Willey and Broaddrick, told Breitbart News exclusively that he was “honored” they said these things about him—and that he knows both of them have been through hell thanks to the Clintons.
“I was honored that they said that about me,” Trump told Breitbart News. “I know they’ve gone through a lot. But I’m honored that they said they said that about me. That was very nice, and very much appreciated.”
Trump also, in this exclusive interview on Monday, recounted how the whole battle has resurfaced. He said that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, and is Bill’s wife—accused him of having a “penchant for sexism.” But, Trump said that Hillary’s decision to keep Bill around proves that is just not the case: It’s actually Hillary who has that issue.
“She said I have a ‘penchant for sexism,’ she used that exact statement,” Trump told Breitbart News. “That was before and she was referring to me.”
Trump is confident that if he wins the GOP nomination in 2016 that he will do better with women than Clinton in a general election.
“There’s nobody that respects women more than I do,” Trump said.
There’s nobody that will do more for women than I will—and included in that is that I’m going to make our country secure. That benefits women and men and everybody. There’s just nobody that is going to do what I am going to do for women, and there’s nobody that has the respect that I have for women. So when she said that I said ‘wait a minute, you have somebody who’s on the campaign trail right now talking for you and he’s had serious problems including all of the charges’ that you could go into if you want. That’s how it all started, and after that I haven’t been active with respect to this issue, but I just thought it was very inappropriate that she would mention such a thing. She wasn’t an innocent victim, she was an enabler. You can ask the people—and when we talk about things like women and women’s rights and all the things we want to talk about, she’s got a very big issue there. Look, nobody respects women more than I do and that includes Hillary Clinton.
Gennifer Flowers, who had consensual relations with Clinton, also warned about a Hillary presidency on Klein’s show.
The interviews helped to spark the current debate about Bill’s alleged female victims, a topic that has engulfed Hillary’s frontrunning campaign.
The Washington Post on Thursday cited a Breitbart article in which Klein described how his radio program had become “a support center of sorts” for Bill Clinton’s female accusers — “a safe-space for these women to sound off about the way they were allegedly treated by both Bill and Hillary.”
