Hillary Refuses To Respond To Trump’s Accusation That She’s Her Husband’s ‘Enabler’
Hillary Clinton on Monday refused to respond to recent accusations from Donald Trump that she has been an “enabler” of her sex scandal-ridden husband.
“Trump has really gone after your husband and even you as an enabler for the scandals of the ‘90s. Is that fair?” NBC News reporter Andrea Mitchell asked Clinton at a campaign stop in Aldie, Va.
The Democratic front-runner dodged the question, saying that she plans to run a campaign that focuses on “a positive vision for our country with specific plans that I think will help us solve the problems that we’re facing.”
“I’m going to let him run his campaign however he chooses,” said Clinton.
Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, has recently set his sights on the Clinton’s various scandals.
He’s hammered the former first couple on their charity’s shady business dealings as well as sexual harassment and assault accusations that have been leveled against Bill Clinton.
The former president has had numerous affairs during his marriage. Several women have also accused him of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of raping her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978, has said that Hillary Clinton “tried to silence” her several weeks after the alleged rape.
“I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away,” Broaddrick wrote on Twitter in January.
“She’s been the total enabler,” Trump said of Clinton during a campaign speech last week. “She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.”
“Are claims accurate, or do you feel need to correct the record?” Clinton was asked on Monday.
“I have nothing to say about him and how he’s running his campaign,” she said.
And asked whether she will have to respond to questions from Trump and others about those accusation given that so many young voters are unaware of the history, Clinton dodged again.
“I’m answering him all the time,” she said. “I’m answering him on what I think voters care about. I’m answering him on the differences between our records, our experience, what we want to do for our country, how important it is to try to unify the country.”
