Donald Trump said today that Hillary Clinton is playing the "woman card" to get elected president.

"I call her 'crooked Hillary' because she's crooked, and the only thing she's got is the woman card. That's all she's got . . . it's a weak card in her hands," Trump said on Fox and Friends.

Trump said Clinton is using her gender to pander to the electorate, and the "woman card" just "may be enough" for Clinton.

"I'd love to see a woman president, but she's the wrong person. She's a disaster," Trump said. The businessman said he does plan to make women some of his top advisers if elected president.

"I would have women, I would have the most capable people on my Cabinet," Trump said.

Trump has a history of making incendiary remarks about women. Last year, he said Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever" after she questioned Trump about his history of calling women "disgusting animals" and "dogs".

Last month, he retweeted an unflattering image of Ted Cruz's wife contrasted with his own wife, a retired model.

When questioned about his comments by Kelly, Trump shot back, "only Rosie O'Donnell".

In the interview with Fox and Friends today, the businessman went after O'Donnell and actress Whoopi Goldberg, who said she would leave the country if Trump is elected president.

"Whoopi . . . that would be a great, great thing for our country" if she left, he said. "We'll get rid of Rosie . . . now I have to get elected, because I'll be doing a great service to our country."

Trump also had words for actress Lena Dunham, who said she would move to Vancouver if Trump is elected president.

"She's a B actor and has no, you know, mojo," Trump said.
