Trump Defends ‘Woman Card’ Attack Against Clinton – Campaign Live
Trump on ‘woman card’ comment: ‘It’s not sexist, it’s true’
Hello, and welcome to our live-wire coverage of the 2016 race for the White House. Donald Trump outperformed the polls last night to nab 55%-65% of the vote in Republican primaries in five north-eastern states, picking up more than 100 delegates and possibly as many as 150 (depending on how Pennsylvania’s unbound dozens eventually vote) – the vast majority at stake.
