WASHINGTON, Aug 9 : Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Sunday refused to apologize for a crude attack on a female Fox News journalist that sparked widespread outrage, insisting he was misunderstood.
The brash billionaire -- who is leading a packed Republican field of White House hopefuls -- found himself at the center of controversy after seeming to suggest that Megyn Kelly, one of the moderators of last week's presidential debate, was tough on him because she was menstruating.
"You can see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever," Trump told CNN on Friday. The comment prompted the organizer of a major conservative forum in Atlanta to withdraw his invitation.
But on Sunday, Trump said only "sick" people or a "deviant" would have concluded he was talking about Kelly's period.
"I cherish women. I want to help women," Trump said in a phone interview with CNN's "State of the Union" news program.
"Who would make a statement like that? Only a sick person would even think about it."
When asked how so many of his fellow candidates and conservative pundits had reached the conclusion about his comment, Trump replied: "They want to be politically correct. They want to get points. I'm leading in the polls."    ?AFP
