Looking to bring a change to the subject of the renewed FBI review into emails associated with Hillary Clinton’s private server, her campaign has launched a concerted attack against Donald Trump’s treatment of women.

Mrs Clinton said Mr Trump had a 30-year history of “demeaning, degrading, insulting and assaulting” women. Meanwhile, Mr Trump has branded Mrs Clinton “corrupt” and said she would “destroy American healthcare forever”.

Clinton, speaking at a rally  on Tuesday, called Trump a bully and accused him of “assaulting” women, opening up a last-ditch effort to put the spotlight on Trump, not her.

After being introduced by former Miss Universe Alicia Machado at the rally, Clinton cracked a joke about Trump finding fault with her.

Appearing on stage with former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, who has previously claimed Mr Trump once called her “Miss Piggy” after she put on weight – Mrs Clinton said she had “learned way back in elementary school that it’s not OK to insult people”.

For her part, Ms Machado called Mr Trump “cruel” and said she had spent years “sick, fighting back eating disorders” as a result of the Republican nominee’s comments.

Echoing Mrs Clinton’s comments at a rally in Ohio, President Barack Obama said the Republican candidate had spent a “lifetime calling women pigs and dogs and slobs”.
