Donald Trump says regularly that he "cherishes" women and that he would be their greatest advocate as president.
But his latest feud with Ted Cruz — in which he threatened the Texas senator's wife, Heidi, and reposted an unflattering picture of her on Twitter — has resurfaced questions about his history of making comments that some find to be sexist. Over the years, Trump has said several things that his critics have called offensive. This is a sampling of such comments.
On media scrutiny
"You know, it doesn't really matter what (the media) write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass," Trump said in a 1991 interview with Esquire magazine.
On marriage and prenuptial agreements
"The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she's got in her grasp," Trump wrote in his 1997 book, The Art of the Comeback.
On having more children with Melania Trump
"Cause I like kids," he told the radio host Howard Stern in 2005. "I mean, I won't do anything to take care of them. I'll supply funds and she'll take care of the kids. It's not like I'm gonna be walking the kids down Central Park."
On chest size
"A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10," Trump said to Stern, also in 2005.
On women wearing burqas
"In fact, it's easier," Trump said at a rally in New Hampshire in 2015. "They don't have to put on makeup or anything."
On sexual assaults of women in the military
"What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?" Trump said on Twitter in 2013.
On tough questions from Megyn Kelly
"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. There was blood coming out of her wherever," Trump said after a Fox News debate in 2015, in an interview with CNN.
On beauty and politics
"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?" Trump, referring to Carly Fiorina, in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 2015.
