Fox News Host Confronts Trump Over Claim That He Made a 'Personal Crack at a Woman

"I do take issue with your personal comment at another candidate like that."

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren confronted businessman and 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday night over comments that he purportedly made about fellow candidate Carly Fiorina's appearance.

"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?" Trump purportedly said of Fiorina in an interview with Rolling Stone. "Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"

Van Susteren, who had Trump on her show on Thursday night, started the segment out by highlighting her disdain for his comments.

"I do take issue with your personal comment at another candidate like that," she told the famed businessman. "I know you've made personal comments about others like Governor Perry, [but] do you want to take this one back about Carly Fiorina?"

Trump wasted no time in responding with a blatant, "No," adding that he was speaking about persona and not physical appearance.

"Her persona is all tied up ... she's had a tremendous failed business," he said. "If you look at Hewlett Packard — if you look at Lucent before Hewlett Packard — she hasn't done well."

Trump went on to say that Fiorina attacked him and that his comments were merely a response to that.

"We're really talking about not a physical thing," he reiterated. "We're talking about the persona."

Van Susteren, though, wasn't buying Trump's explanation, responding that he's not a "first-time offender" when it comes to "making a personal crack at a woman."

The businessman responded by claiming that his past statements were made as an entertainer and that he is leading in the polls with evangelicals and women.

Recent polling has shown that he has made gains among Republican women of late.
