The video is the second such video to appear in as many days showing Trump airing views completely opposite to his current statements on the Clintons.

In the interview Trump says about the Clintons: "People don't like them because they're jealous of them. But Bill Clinton was a great president . . . she [Hillary] is going to go down as a minimum as a great senator. She is going to go down as a great wife to a president."

He even goes as far as to describe Hillary Clinton as 'a great woman and a good woman'.

Talking about the years when Bill Clinton was president he says: "During the Clinton years the economy was doing great, we had no war . . . everybody was happy."
