Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have launched into a rhetorical scrum, with the Republican front-runner accusing at Clinton of playing “the woman’s card.”

“She’s got nothing else going,” Trump told supporters in New York after primary victories in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware.

“And, frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote.” He added in an immediate contradiction that “the beautiful thing is women don’t like her.”

Clinton, herself enjoying victory in four out of five of Tuesday’s Democratic primaries, retorted in Philadelphia, that “if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the ‘woman card,’ then deal me in.”
