Trump's anti-women remarks may cost probable contest against Hillary, fear Republicans


Washington, March 26: Republican presidential nomination front-runner Donald Trump has been targeting Heidi Cruz, the wife of his rival Ted Cruz, raising a fresh alarm among the Republicans about the former's ability to convince the women voters, especially if the final showdown takes place between him and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump has been attacking Heidi since a nude photo of his wife Melania, a former model, entered the scenario, thanks to an anti-Trump super PAC. The real-estate tycoon lashed out at Cruz saying he would spill the beans on his wife, seeing the latter hitting back at him, calling him "classless".

The hostilities that turned too personal saw the new low on Friday when Cruz accused Trump and "his henchmen" of creating false rumours that he had cheated his wife. [After Trump's dick size, focus is on her wife's nude photo]

Cruz told reporters in Wisconsin that the country doesn't want a president "who traffics in sleaze and slime" and "seems to have a real issue with strong women." [Bernie Sanders will look to win against Hillary in March 26 caucuses]

Trump is known for making sexist remarks

Trump is known to issue sexist remarks and the Republicans feared this could be make the party vulnerable in this election since it involves a woman who aspires to be the country's first woman president.

Trump had a major spat with Fox News after its anchor Megyn Kelly questioned the candidate on his calling women as "fat pig", "dog" and other names. Trump was also seen insulting businesswoman Carly Fiorina saying nobody would vote for a woman with such looks.

After the ugly fight over the wives started, Trump even retweeted a combined image of Heidi, a former White House aide, and Melania, saying the "images are worth a thousand words". While Heidi looked sad in the picture, Melania was in her glamorous best.

Soon after, Cruz responded by calling Trump "a snivelling coward" in Wisconsin.

Trump, who had earned flak in the past for also commenting on Jeb Bush's Mexico-born wife Columba, has been seen falling back in terms of popularity among women. In a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, it was seen an overwhelming 70 per cent women had an unfavourable opinion on Trump. Even in the Republican camp, 39 per cent of women did not find Trump their favourite.
