Washington, Apr 27: Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump today said his Democratic counterpart Hillary Clinton is playing the "woman's card", and claimed that she would have few votes if she were a man.
"I think the only card she has is the woman's card. She's got nothing else going," Trump told media after his sweeping victories in five states where presidential primaries were held. The leading Republican presidential candidate claimed that Clinton, who won the primaries in four states, was leading in the Democratic race because of her gender.
"And frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man I don't think she'd get 5 per cent of the vote. The only thing she's got going is the woman's card," he said.
"The beautiful thing is women don't like her. And look how well I did with women tonight," he said in response to a question.
"We're going to win and we're going to beat Hillary Clinton," he said. Over the past few weeks, Trump has been describing his Democratic rival as "crooked Hillary" to which the former Secretary of State has refused to respond.
"I call her crooked Hillary. She's crooked. She'll be a horrible president. She knows nothing about job creation. Her husband signed NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) which destroyed this country economically," he said.
"You look at New York state, you look all over New England, you look at Pennsylvania, NAFTA was a disaster. Her husband (Bill Clinton) signed it and it was a disaster for this country. Hillary will be horrible, absolutely horrible on economic development. She will be terrible on jobs. She knows nothing about jobs except for jobs for herself," Trump attacked.
".....You look at what she did with Syria. You look at what she's done in so many different ways...She will not be a good president. She doesn't have the strength, she doesn't have the stamina," he alleged.
"I know about dealing with China. I've made billions of dollars dealing with China. China can be dealt with and you can get along with them. But Hillary does not have the strength or the stamina to deal with China or other things," Trump said. Trump today declared himself the "presumptive nominee" after sweeping presidential primaries in all five Northeastern states while his Democratic rival Clinton also cemented her lead, bringing them closer to a monumental duel for the White House.
