“War on Women” has broken out once again in the 2016 presidential campaign, just like in 2012. Until now, there has been a cease-fire, but Tuesday night, Donald Trump reignited the battle that will now turn into a war. Donald Trump artillery fired upon Hillary Clinton on Tuesday in a victory speech in New York. The firing the first shot in the GOP “War on Women”, with Hillary Clinton as the target. Reminiscent of the First Battle of Fort Sumter during America’s Civil War, the “racist” and now “sexist” Trump started a Civil War as he fired upon camp Hillary Clinton. Trump accused Clinton of playing the “woman’s card” to collect votes. “If Hillary Clinton was a man, I don’t think she’d get 5% of the vote,” Trump said. “The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card.” According to the New York Daily News, the “snide remark” by Trump, was accompanied by a “quizzical smirk from one of Trump’s sidekicks: Gov. Chris Christie’s wife Mary Pat Christie.”
Hillary Clinton slapped back at Donald Trump at the Philadelphia Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at her Democratic primary victory. “Mr. Trump’s accused me of playing the ‘woman card,'” Clinton said before fiercely answering Trump. “Well, if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.” The rally followed victories in Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania, in effect, sealing the deal for the Democratic nomination. According to The New York Times, Clinton won 64 percent of the vote in Maryland, 60 percent in Delaware, 56 percent in Pennsylvania and 50 percent in Connecticut. Sanders won the state of Rhode Island, where he won 55 percent of the vote.
According to People.com, 2,383 delegates are needed for either Clinton or Sanders to clinch the Democratic nomination. Going into Tuesday’s primaries, the Associated Press reports, Clinton had secured 1,944 delegates, including “super delegates,” while Sanders had earned total 1,192 delegates. A total of 384 pledged delegates were at stake in Tuesday’s primaries. Super delegates tend to migrate toward the candidate winning the primaries, which is clearly Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton then turned attention away from Trump, and toward making peace with her opponent in the Democratic primaries, Senator Bernie Sander (I-VT). “We will unify our party to win this election so we can build an America where we lift each other up instead of tearing each other down,” Clinton said. “There’s much more that unites us than divides us.”
