“And she could barely even reach her car,” he said at the end, appearing to refer to Clinton's health scare last month, in which her knees buckled as she was escorted into her vehicle. She had pneumonia at the time.
Trump claimed overwhelming victories after the first two debates despite polling suggesting otherwise. The third presidential debate is scheduled to take place next Wednesday in Las Vegas.
On the stump, Trump regularly questions Clinton’s health and stamina and has suggested that Clinton does not have the energy needed to be president.
Clinton developed pneumonia last month and was seen stumbling at an event commemorating the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Trump initially avoided commenting on the episode, but as his poll numbers have dropped, he has regularly mocked Clinton for falling.
Correct the Record, a pro-Clinton rapid response group, criticized Trump and accused him of peddling "more conspiracy theories about his opponent's health." They also knocked Trump's connections to Breitbart News, an "alt-right" platform formerly run by Steve Bannon, who is now the Trump campaign's chief executive.
"This is a completely outrageous statement that further proves he can’t help but peddle more conspiracy theories about his opponent’s health," Correct The Record President Brad Woodhouse said in a statement. "He also continued his rigged election rhetoric which is dangerous and undermines our democracy and the election process. What else should we expect from a Breitbart-run campaign?"
During the campaign event, Trump also briefly criticized the women who have accused him of sexual assault and harassment.
“It’s a crazy world we’re living in. But that’s what I mean. Because they’re taking these unsubstantiated [allegations], no witnesses, putting them on the front pages of newspapers,” he said. Some of Trump's accusers who have gone on record with claims of sexual misconduct have provided the names of witnesses who they say can corroborate their accounts.
During the event, Trump also referred to his GOP primary opponents, bragging about defeating them and mockingly contrasting their collective political experience to his own lack of experience before this election. Trump criticized the media for writing off his candidacy early on in his campaign.
“Don’t forget. I wasn’t supposed to win. I was a businessman with no experience, but I was always very political,” Trump said. Referring to the conservative Washington Post columnist, the nominee continued: “The geniuses back there — Charles Krauthammer, there’s a real winner, Charles Krauthammer says, ‘Donald Trump has no experience and he has no chance.’ "
