Trump calls Clinton 'such a nasty woman'

During the dramatic live presidential debate in the US presidential election, Donald Trump made one of his most scathing attacks on Hillary Clinton so far. As the Democrat nominee outlined her policy on social security, her rival interrupted to call her a “nasty woman”.

She said: "My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s, assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it. But what we want to do is replenish the Social Security Trust Fund-”. At which point Mr Trump interjected: “Such a nasty woman”.

The comment has been much derided online, with female voters taking to social media to claim their pride at being a “nasty woman”.

Nasty Women For Hillary soon became a Facebook page as voters flocked to give their support to the Demcrat candidate and vent their frustration at Trump.
