Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, was on Thursday night booed at a charity roast in New York City for jokes about his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Critics said on Friday in New York that the jokes went beyond the good-natured jibes expected at such a function.

A report on Friday quoted Trump as saying “Hillary is so corrupt that she got kicked off the Watergate commission."

It said the statement led to an unprecedented boos from the audience at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner, a charity fundraiser organised by the Catholic Church.

The report added that Trump also got laughs from the audience, most notably when he referred to his wife Melania’s speech at the Republican national convention in July.

“Michelle Obama gives a speech and everyone loves it, it’s fantastic, they think she’s absolutely great.

“My wife Melania gives the exact same speech and people get on her case. I don’t get it, I don’t know why,’’ he said.
