Former 'Apprentice' cast and crew members describe sexist behavior by Donald Trump

"Hillary Clinton's only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself", he said.

The Trump campaign has not denied the accuracy of the returns, with the real estate mogul saying on his Twitter account, "I know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix them".

For Mr Trump, who is trailing badly in polls with women, the new attack on Mrs Hillary Clinton is a risky strategy. "And really, folks, really, why should she be, right?" said the Manhattan billionaire, who has revived talk of Bill Clinton's past infidelities in the wake of his lacklustre performance in last week's debate.

"Here's a woman, she's supposed to fight all these different things and she can't make it 15 feet to her vehicle".

The former Miss Universe's story has dominated media coverage of the election since Clinton brought her up at Monday's debate, when she criticized Trump for denigrating comments he made in 1996 about Machado's weight. In the interview, he called her an "enabler" and said she had attacked the women who said that Mr Bill Clinton had had affairs with or sexually harassed them.

Even as he launched the contentious new attacks, a defiant Trump campaign dodged swirling questions about his tax record.

Regarding Clinton's emails, Trump said a closed Federal Bureau of Investigation probe was "rigged" and was bigger than the Watergate scandal that led former U.S. President Richard Nixon to resign in the 1970s.

If true, the report is proof of the tycoon's "absolute genius", said former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, a key Trump surrogate. He says his US income tax returns for recent years are under audit by federal officials and that he will release them when the reviews are finished, even though there is no prohibition against disclosing the information ahead of that time. The left-tilted news site, under the headline "Riches-to-Riches Trump Spins Fake Horatio Alger Tale", makes the case that had Trump cashed out his inheritance in the mid-1970s and invested in an S&P 500 index fund, he'd be dramatically wealthier than he is now.

Clinton seized on the Times report as undercutting Trump's core argument: that he is an iconic business success whose acumen can translate into positive action in the White House.

"What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?"

The next Clinton tweet borrowed a favorite word of Trump.

Trump told The New York Times that he was considering going after Clinton's marriage and her husband's past indiscretions.
