The comment came not long after Clinton called out the GOP presidential nominee for his history of misogynistic and insulting comments.
Trump had followed up by stating, “No one has more respect for women than I do.”

“This is a candidate who has a deficit with women,” said anchor Savannah Guthrie. “It was so striking to see him actually go there.”
