President Trump falsely attempted to claim this Saturday that he seized 52 percent of the female vote during the 2016 presidential election.
While giving a speech at a recent campaign rally in Pennsylvania, Trump cited to the estimation ahead of the election that female voters would not vote for him.
“Remember, women won’t like Donald Trump,” he said. “I said, ‘Have I really had that kind of a problem?’ … We got 52 percent. And I’m running against a woman. You know, that’s not that easy.”
Trump did manage to obtain 52 percent of the vote from white women. Hillary Clinton on other hand dominated the majority of female votes, with a staggering 54 percent casting their vote for the Democrat.
Trump has recently attempted to boast about his achievements in paving the way for a women president. On International Women’s Day, Trump issued out a statement outlining his administration’s work for female entrepreneurs and women in peace and security fields.
Trump made his remarks Saturday while giving a speech at a Pennsylvania campaign rally in support of GOP House candidate Rick Saccone, who is looking at a hard run against Democrat Conor Lamb in the deep-red district’s special election.
Trump managed to win over the district with double digits in the election, but recent polls have shown Lamb slightly leading over Saccone.
Hillary Clinton is expected to receive an award in May in support of here impact on society from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, according to a new press release.
Previous award recipients include Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, and former Senator Elizabeth Dole.
