Donald Trump Thursday morning doubled down on his complaints that Hillary Clinton is playing the "woman card" in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, saying that she couldn't win as much as a local election if she was a man.
"Frankly, all I'm doing is bringing out the obvious," the GOP front-runner told NBC's "Today"
show. "Without the woman's card, Hillary would not even be a viable person who could even run for a city council position."
Trump, appearing on the NBC program a day after rival Ted Cruz selected Carly Fiorina as his running mate, kept his attention on Clinton, a former secretary of state and U.S. senator, telling the show "the primary thing that she has going is that she's a woman and she's playing that card like I have never seen anybody play it before."
On Wednesday, however, Trump mocked Cruz for picking Fiorina while he is still trailing in the nation's primaries and has fewer delegates than Trump.
Trump also on Thursday reiterated a point he made in his first foreign policy speech the day before, telling the program that he would deal with the threat of the Islamic State, but not how he would do that, as remaining unpredictable is key when dealing with terrorists.
"If I get elected president, I don't want ISIS to know what I'm going to be doing," he said, but he would not rule out the possibility of using nuclear weapons or "anything" in the fight.
"I will be the last to use nuclear weapons," he said. "It's a horror to use nuclear weapons. The power of weaponry today is the single greatest problem that our world has. I will not be a happy trigger like some people might be. I will be the last, but I will never ever rule it out."
