In an impromptu discussion at a book store in upstate New York earlier this month, Clinton said this when asked if he thought Trump was smart: “He doesn’t know much. One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”
Clinton made the remarks December 10, and they were reported by a local newspaper editor who happened to be present. The comments were published on Monday by Politico.
Trump fired back Tuesday morning in a series of tweets.
“Bill Clinton stated that I called him after the election. Wrong, he called me (with a very nice congratulations. He ‘doesn’t know much’ …”
Trump added: “especially how to get people, even with an unlimited budget, out to vote in the vital swing states ( and more). They focused on wrong states”.
