Amidst news of Donald Trump's recent cameo in a Playboy, soft core porn video in 1999, the Republican presidential candidate is looking to turn the negative attention back onto his opponent, Hillary Clinton. And his next plan of attack? To talk about her marriage. During a recent interview with The New York Times, Trump vowed to unleash a war against Hillary over her husband's past indiscretions. 

"She’s nasty, but I can be nastier than she ever can be," Trump told the newspaper of his intent to smear Hillary in the upcoming weeks. "Hillary Clinton was married to the single greatest abuser of women in the history of politics. Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward."

The Republican said he was bringing up the Clinton's rocky marriage over the years because "he thought [it] would repulse female voters and turn them away," and because he was "eager to unsettle" Clinton ahead of the next two debates, according to reports. "Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future." 

While Trump's ploy may seem like a brilliant idea to pull women voters, he might want to tread lightly before plunging head first into the marital topic. The presidential candidate isn't a stranger to family scandals, and has reportedly been accused of cheating throughout his three marriages. According to the NY Daily News, Trump reportedly became involved with Marla Maples while he was still married to his first wife, Ivana. Trump and Maples married in 1993, but finalized their divorce in 1999. The Apprentice host married his third wife, Melania in 2005. 

After the first debates on Monday, Trump gave himself a pat on the back for not blasting Clinton over her husband's affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, or former mistress Gennifer Flowers—whom he sent a personal invitation to the political event earlier in the week. At the time, he stated that the topic would have been "inappropriate" and "not nice." But after Clinton attacked Trump over his comments about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, it looks like all bets on a "nice" campaign trail have been taken off the table.
