Clinton, Not Trump, Playing 'Woman Card,' Says Trump Senior Adviser

“The person that is playing the woman card is Hillary, not Donald Trump."

Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump's comments this week in which he said Clinton would receive less support if she was a man and that women don't like her.

Trump made the comments despite Clinton receiving a higher percentage of the vote among female Democrats than he received among female Republicans during five primaries last Tuesday. Huckabee Sanders expressed confidence Trump would win them over.

"At the end of the day, they're going to side with Donald Trump," Huckabee Sanders said.

"She does happen to be a woman -- that is true," she said. "But really this campaign has been focused on economic opportunities for women and families in this country on a whole wide breadth of issues."

According to Huckabee Sanders, though, every endorsement counts this election year.

"Donald Trump is looking for the endorsement and the vote of every American," she said. "I think that's why he's doing so well."
