Bill Clinton declined Tuesday to respond to new accusations from Donald Trump that he is the “worst abuser” of women of any politician in history.
The former president was at a restaurant in Cayey, Puerto Rico following a campaign stop when he was asked about a tweet that the presumptive GOP nominee posted earlier in the day.
The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty asked Clinton if he would like to respond.
“No. I won’t,” Clinton said. “I think people are smart enough to figure this out without my help.”
Trump went after Clinton after a pro-Hillary super PAC released an ad on Monday featuring clips of Trump making negative comments about women. The real estate billionaire has responded to past accusations of misogyny from the Clinton campaign and its surrogates by pointing to Bill Clinton’s affairs and the sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations made against him.
A former nursing executive named Juanita Broaddrick accused Clinton of sexually assaulting her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978. Paula Jones has also accused him of sexually harassing her. Trump has also used the allegations to accuse Hillary Clinton of being her husband’s “enabler.”
