Donald Trump slams Hillary Clinton for 'off the reservation' remarks

Donald Trump on Monday condemned Hillary Clinton for saying she can handle men who go "off the reservation," calling it demeaning to men and to Native Americans.

“If I made that statement about women, it’d be front-page headlines,” the Republican presidential front-runner said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Trump also said  "the Indians have gotten wild" about Clinton's statement.

He again accused the Democratic front-runner of “playing the woman card” in her attacks, but this time by acting “nasty” toward men.

Clinton's initial comment came during an interview with CNN as she tried to dismiss Trump's "woman card" attack.

"I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak," Clinton said.

Clinton’s campaign insisted that the remark was not meant as a slight against Native Americans.

“Hillary Clinton meant no disrespect to Native Americans,” Clinton political director Amanda Renteria tweeted . “She wants this election to be about lifting people up, not tearing them down.”
