Over the weekend the possibility of war between the Trump campaign and the Clinton Family Mafia began to grow ever more likely.
On Fox News, Trump argued that if Bill Clinton were going to make himself a central part of the campaign – then he would become fair game for political attack. Trump also said that he was preparing to go all out against Hillary Clinton, and that she better prepare herself for battle.
“I think he [Bill Clinton] is fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled, to put it mildly, because of all of the things that’s she talking to me about.
She’s [Hillary Clinton] got to be careful, you know, she’s got to be fair, we all have to fight fairly, and we have to fight for the good of the country, for the good of the people, for the good of everybody. But we have to fight fairly.
She’s playing the woman’s card, and it’s like, give me a break.”
Which led Fox News’ Ed Henry to ask, “So you’re looking ahead? You think you’re so far ahead in the GOP nomination battle that you’re taking Clinton on head on?”
No. I don’t feel I’m so far ahead, I could be doing well in a baseball game, up ten runs in the bottom of the ninth, and I wouldn’t feel I am so far ahead. I am against very capable people.
Also on Fox News Trump told Greta Van Susteren that Hillary will soon be facing his full wrath.
I really haven’t gone after Hillary yet and there’s a lot to go after. She is very susceptible, I think, to — I mean, look at the job she’s done. It’s horrible. It doesn’t get worse. So I think it’s frankly going to be easier in some cases than some of the people I am currently running against.
If you look at the people who have attacked me, those people are out of the race or they have gone down to nothing. There are sitting in the race but they are down to nothing. But I am fine with Hillary.
The DNC is not happy (to say the least) with Trump’s threats. In fact, they’ve become so agitated that they’re now warning Trump of the repercussions he’ll face if he openly attacks Bill Clinton.
I think that Donald Trump or any candidate on the other side of the aisle would raise Bill Clinton as somehow a negative to their peril. I think every poll I’ve ever seen shows that if President Clinton were a candidate tomorrow he’d be reelected. He presided at that time over the longest period of sustained prosperity up to that point. Finished his term very popular and continues to be one of the most admired elected officials, and former elected officials, and men in the world.
