Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump called into "Fox and Friends" Friday morning and leveled a harsh hypothetical at his likely general election foe, Hillary Clinton.

When discussing the Democratic frontrunner's plans to put her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in charge of "economic revitalization" during her administration, the billionaire businessman seemingly hinted at the former president's previous infidelity as a motivating factor.

The "Fox and Friends" interviewer asked Trump if the former Secretary of State would choose her husband to head up economic revitalization because of his popularity relative to hers, but the GOP frontrunner responded: "Maybe she's saying that, or maybe she just wants him around the White House so she can keep her eye on him."

A Clinton spokesman walked back Clinton's comments about her husband's role this week, refusing to comment on whether Bill Clinton would live in Washington during his wife's presidency. The campaign also said that discussion of the former president's role as an "economy czar" overinflates his significance.

Trump has used Bill Clinton's infidelity as a talking point on the campaign trail multiple times, calling Hillary Clinton a "total enabler" of her husband's behavior, adding that she would "go after" the women he was allegedly involved with.

During an interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday, Trump raised old allegations of sexual misconduct by the former president in response to a New York Times article about his own behavior toward women in his orbit over the years.

Trump also famously boasted about affairs that he's had with married women.
