President Donald Trump on Thursday called Hillary Clinton “bigger than” he did.
In an interview with The Washington Post, the president called his Democratic rival the Democratic presidential nominee “really, really, really good” and said she has “biger heart” than he did.
“It’s an interesting thing because I think people are kind of underestimating her,” Trump said.
“I’m a lot bigger than her.
She’s bigger than me.
She has bigger heart than I do.”
In his interview, Trump also praised the Democratic nominee for being the first female president and for having an “unbelievable” record of achievements in her presidency.
But Trump, who has repeatedly praised Clinton’s accomplishments, also said that she does not have a “great temperament.”
“I have a temperament, a temperament that’s very much in line with what I have seen,” Trump told the Post.
“And I think you know that in the country.
I think that you’re going to see that.”
Trump’s comments come after a number of women who have accused the former first lady of sexual misconduct, including several former Democratic senators, as well as an ex-girlfriend who claimed Trump groped her while she was in his hotel room in New York in 2005.
Trump’s remarks came just days after former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., slammed Trump for using a “sadistic” tweet to criticize House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., over the weekend.
“What he is doing is sadistic, and I think the American people are tired of that,” Pelosi said.
The president did not directly criticize Ryan, who is currently on leave after a serious heart attack.
“Paul Ryan is a great person,” Trump added.
“He’s done a lot for the country, and he’s done really well for himself.”
