Touché. Condoleezza Rice perfectly shut down Donald Trump after he reportedly called her a bitch during a 2006 speech at the Javits Center in New York City.
After New York Daily News and Deadspin first reported the remarks, CNN verified Trump’s comments, which were caught on video.
"I wish she was a bitch. I don't care if she's a lovely woman. I want somebody that can go and make deals,” the Republican presidential nominee said during a November 19, 2006, speech at the Learning Annex Real Estate & Wealth Expo. “She goes to countries, nothing ever happens. Except sound bytes.”
NYDN and Deadspin originally reported that Trump stated: “Condoleezza Rice, she’s a lovely woman, but I think she’s a bitch. She goes around to other countries and other nations, negotiates with their leaders, comes back and nothing ever happens.”
When CNN reached out to the former Secretary of State regarding Trump’s “bitch” comment, Rice perfectly responded.
“Can’t wait until November 9!” the 61-year-old wrote to CNN in an email, hinting at Trump’s forthcoming possible loss to his opponent, another former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
The Republican politician previously bashed the businessman via a Facebook post after his 2005 audio surfaced online.
"Enough! Donald Trump should not be president,” Rice wrote on October 8 in response to Trump's lewd comments. “He should withdraw.”
The controversial Republican nominee will sound off against Clinton during the final debate tonight, Wednesday, October 19, at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. ET. Stay with Us Weekly throughout the evening for a complete recap of the event.
