Ahead of the first debate between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clinton's camp has released a video that offers a view into how Trump treats women.

The ad, released on Friday juxtaposes young women looking in the mirror with Trumps' misogynistic comments collected over the years through public interviews.

Through the video Trump is heard referring to a woman's “fat, ugly face,” calling another one a “slob” who “ate like a pig” and talking about another woman as not having a “good body”.

The video also shows him admitting he does not treat women with respect.

While his comments play, the young women look into the mirror. The juxtaposition offers the Clinton campaign's views of the harm Trump would cause the nation's women.

“Is this the president we want for our daughters?” The video asks.

This video only features a few of Trump's misogynistic views and comments. Aside from what's in the video his views have been well-documented. Whether in interviews, his own writing or tweets, Trump has said:

“If I were running ‘The View’, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I’d say ‘Rosie, you’re fired."


“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

In 2011 when a lawyer facing Trump asked for a break to pump breast milk for her infant daughter, Trump “got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there,” attorney Elizabeth Beck told CNN.

Trump’s own attorney does not dispute that his client called Beck “disgusting.”

In his 2004 book How to Get Rich Trump wrote: “It’s certainly not groundbreaking news that the early victories by the women on ‘The Apprentice’ were, to a very large extent, dependent on their sex appeal.”

 

In an interview in Esquire in 1991 he said : “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” — from an interview with Esquire, 1991.
