Bill Clinton, Donald Trump to make dueling appearances next week

Things could get really interesting around these parts Monday.

Former president Bill Clinton will stump for his wife's presidential campaign in Nashua, just 20 miles away from the Lowell arena where Donald Trump will rally his supporters.

The day will play out amid the backdrop of Trump apparently alluding to Bill Clinton's past womanizing during a radio interview.

After Hillary Clinton told the Des Moines Register last week that Trump made sexist comments about her, Trump fired back that Clinton cannot beat him with the "women's card."

In an interview with Radio Iowa on Monday Trump said, "With all of her past and her past dealings and, frankly, she's been involved in it with her husband as much as anybody, for her to be discussing that I think is out of bounds, and I've let them know that. I think we have to have fair fights here and fair dialogue, and we have to do what's right for the country and she shouldn't be discussing it."


Clearly things have changed between Trump and the Clintons. He used to golf with Bill and talked to him on the phone regularly.

The Clintons attended Trump's third wedding.

Monday will also mark the first time that Bill Clinton has campaigned on behalf of his wife's presidential effort this season. He was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's Jefferson and Jackson dinner in December 2014.
