TRUMP'S HISTORY WITH WOMEN: B+
Has Donald Trump said offensive things about women in the past during his entertainment days before he was President? Sure he has. But he has also said some equally, if not, more offensive things to men. So to say he is anti women based on this analogy is just ludicrous. He's an equal opportunity name caller. The fact is when it comes to actions (you know the old saying..."actions speak louder than words") there are not many people that can say they have done more to give women equal opportunity than President Trump.
Before Donald Trump Was President:
-Barbara Res, at 33 year old became the first women to ever be put in charge of supervising the construction of a skyscraper, when Donald Trump hired her in 1980.
-After Jennifer Hudson’s (African American female) mother, brother, and nephew were murdered, Trump sheltered her and her family at the Trump International Hotel & Tower free of charge.
-President Trump donated $25,000 to a mostly black women's basketball league after the founder was killed in the 9/11 attack.
-Trump resurrected Miss USA, an event that offers women a once in a lifetime, dream come true, experience to showcase their many talents and fitness lifestyles.
