Donald Trump has a highly-publicized history of sexism and misogyny that result in a lack of appeal among female voters.

From calling opponent Hillary Clinton "grossly incompetent" on Wednesday to doubling down on his body shaming of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado – whom he previously nicknamed “Miss Piggy” – on Tuesday, this week has not been a good one for the GOP nominee.

But it appears Trump’s comments towards women is nothing new. In a resurfaced video from 2013, the real estate mogul called then-pregnant Kim Kardashian West “a little bit large.”

While speaking on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, Trump was asked to speak on Kardashian West’s decision to create a baby shower gift registry for herself in spite of her wealth.

“She’s a nice person. I’ve known her over the years. She’s really a nice person,” he said before weighing in on her appearance, “She’s gotten a little bit large. I would say this, I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.”

At the time, Kardashian West, now 35, and then-boyfriend Kanye West were expecting daughter North.

Fast forward to the present, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star has made it clear that she will not be voting for Trump.

“I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision,” Kardashian West announced on her website and app.

Adding, “Now that I have made my choice I want to be clear… I would never judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs. I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there.”
