Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton was 'Schlonged' to the Presidency by Barack Obama

Donald Trump has attracted fresh controversy after telling a rally that Hillary Clinton was “schlonged” by Barack Obama when both ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.

The Republican presidential frontrunner – who has hardly been out of the news in recent weeks following his call for all Muslims to be banned from entering the US – told a 6,000-strong audience in Michigan: “Even her race to Obama. She was going to beat Obama. I don’t know who’d be worse. I don’t know. How does it get worse?
“She was favoured to win and she got schlonged, she lost.”

“I watched her the other night and said ‘this is not a president’,” he added.
The billionaire entrepreneur has previously been criticised for misogynistic comments he made in relation to an interview with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of wherever.”
The 69-year-old used the rally to raise a number of criticisms he has of Mrs Clinton, who is running for the Democratic nomination for next year’s US presidential election.
Mocking her for taking a brief toilet break during Saturday’s Democratic debate, Mr Trump told the rally: “I thought she quit, I thought she gave up.”
He later added: “I know where she went. It’s disgusting. I don’t want to talk about it.”
Mr Trump also accused the Democratic frontrunner of lying during the debate when she said that Isis had used videos of his comments relating to Muslims to recruit militants.
Mrs Clinton had said that Mr Trump had become Isis’s “best recruiter”: “They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
Mr Trump has said that counterterrorism experts have found no evidence to support the claim.
A spokeswoman for the Clinton campaign later said that “she didn’t have a particular video in mind”.
Her team reiterated to CNBC that her remark had been based on evidence that supporters of the extremist group frequently cite Mr Trump’s comments to make the case that Americans hate Muslims.
It quoted a counterterrorism expert and linked to a tweet from a “very vocal Isis supporter”.
Campaign chairman John Podesta said: “That's the interpretation we made. I think it's a very fair charge.”
Also at the rally, Mr Trump defended the kind words he has been exchanging with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who last week described the presidential candidate as a “flamboyant and outstanding” man.
“That’s like a good thing, not a bad thing,” Mr Trump said.
“Wouldn’t it be nice if we could get along like with people?”
