Donald Trump, who provoked anger from both sides of the abortion debate this week, avoided answering whether or not he’s been with anyone who had an abortion.
Donald Trump isn’t answering any more abortion questions.
The GOP presidential front-runner, asked if he was ever involved with a woman who had an abortion during his swinging single days, dodged the query.
“Such an interesting question,” Trump told The New York Times. “So what’s your next question?”
The New York billionaire suffered a tough week on the campaign trail after bizarrely calling for “some sort of punishment” against women who had abortions if the procedure was banned.
Trump films a town hall meeting for MSNBC with Chris Matthews, where he stirred up controversy with his answer on whether there should be a punishment for women who have abortions if the procedure were outlawed.
Trump was a bit more reflective when asked about his decision to retweet an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz alongside one of his Slovenia-born model wife Melania.
“Yeah, it was a mistake,” Trump acknowledged. “If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have sent it.”
But Trump wasn’t done. He told the Times that he could have sent out a photo where his wife, 24 years younger than The Donald, looked even hotter.
“I think she’s taken better pictures,” Trump said.
The Republican front-runner had a bad week on the campaign trail, calling for “some sort of punishment” against women who had abortions if the procedure was banned, before changing his mind.
Trump, despite his insulting campaign comments about high-profile women like Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and ex-GOP candidate Carly Fiorina, insisted that “nobody respects women more than I do.”
Trump, in self-defense, then turned the conversation toward his famous coif — a daunting mix of combover and hairspray.
Hillary Clinton recently described Trump as “an id with hair,” but he would not respond in kind.
“My hair is just fine, but I get attacked on my hair,” Trump said. “But if I attack someone else on their hair, they’d say, ‘Oh, what a terrible thing to do.’”
