One of the most acrimonious US presidential election campaigns hit a new low when Republican frontrunner Donald Trump referenced the size of his penis and assured voters that he was well endowed.

Trump, who has already been criticised by the American media for his brash and coarse campaign, brought up the issue while responding to comments by Senator Marco Rubio during a Republican debate on Thursday night.

On Sunday, Rubio had reacted to insults from Trump by mocking the billionaire for having small hands.

“He’s always calling me Little Marco. And I’ll admit he’s taller than me. He’s like 6’2, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5’2,” Rubio said. “And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”

During the Republican debate, Trump pointed out there was “no problem” with the size of his hands or any other part of his anatomy.

“Look at those hands, are they small hands?” Trump asked, raising his hands. “And, he referred to my hands –’if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”
