Trump Threatens to Bring Up Bill Clinton’s ‘Indiscretions’

Immediately following the first presidential debate, Donald Trump revealed to Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would have liked to have brought up Hillary Clinton’s personal life, but “I didn’t want to say—her husband was in the room along with her daughter, who I think is a very nice young lady—and I didn’t want to say what I was going to say about what’s been going on in their life,” he ever-so-unsubtly hinted at Bill Clinton’s alleged sexual misconduct throughout his career. “I decided not to say it. I thought it would be very disrespectful to Chelsea and maybe to the family. But she said very bad things about me... it’s a disgrace.” Several minutes later, while appearing on CNN, Trump said, “I was able to hold back on the indiscretions,” and then suggested he will not do the same during the second presidential debate. Top surrogate Rudy Giuliani echoed the narrative during a spin-room interview, telling reporters, “I know he would have liked to have said—except for the fact that Chelsea Clinton was in the audience—and that is that [Hillary Clinton] enabled and supported a president who is a disgrace to the White House.”
