Washington (CNN)Donald Trump mocked Hillary Clinton on Tuesday for barking like a dog and vowed he would never do so because he said he would be pilloried in the media.

"If I ever did that, I would be ridiculed all over the place. I won't do it. I'm not going to imitate her," Trump said during a rally in North Augusta, South Carolina. "She's barking like a dog, and they're saying 'wonderful.'"
Clinton barked like a dog Monday while delivering an extended analogy about an old Arkansas political ad where a dog was trained to bark every time something a politician said was untrue.
    "I want to figure out how we can do that with Republicans. We need to get that dog and follow them around and every time they say these things like, 'Oh, the Great Recession was caused by too much regulation,' arh, arh, arh, arh," Clinton said, letting out a barking noise that caused the audience to laugh and some people to mimic her.

    It's not the first time Trump has talked about Clinton barking. During a New Hampshire rally last month, a dog barked and Trump stopped his speech.
    "What was that -- was that a dog?" he asked.
    Someone in the audience shot back, "Hillary!"
    "Uh oh," Trump said, then laughed and repeated, "It's Hillary!"
