Donald Trump receives backlash from his tweet

Organizers of ‘A Day Without a Woman’ stated that Trump’s era demanded the feminism. The group stated that their action is a “rejection of the current racist and misogynist policies of Trump.”

The public widely criticized the business mogul during the election campaign. Many people accused him of objectifying women due to a leaked audio and another statement he had made. Despite his goodwill and kind-mannered statement, social media users bashed Trump. The media documented Trump’s questionable rhetoric towards women during the campaign. The scandals tarnished his reputation when it comes to dealing with women.

During his candidacy and presidency, Trump tried to push back the negative perception that he has no respect for women. White House officials defended Trump from all the backlash he is getting. They pointed out that there are longtime female employees in the Trump organization. Officials siding with Trump also stated that the president supported paid family leave. Proving that he have the interests of women at heart.

Donald Trump’s past remarks about women continue to haunt him

Unfortunately, his history of making derogatory and disrespectful remarks to women is hard to remove. Trump continues to struggle to shake the anti-woman perception of some people. In spite of his attempts, millions of people demonstrated across the U.S. to protest his presidency during the women’s marches.

To appease the masses, Trump repeatedly pronounced his respect for women. In a debate on October 9, 2016, the president admitted that he is embarrassed by what he had said before. He said, “Nobody has more respect for women than I do. I’ve said things that, frankly, you hear these things I said. And I was embarrassed by it. But I have tremendous respect for women. And women have respect for me.”

In another interview, he said that his daughter, Ivanka, knows that he respect and love women. He stated that Ivanka even asks him to talk about it because people do not understand how he truly feels. While Trump battles the negative outlook, people are continues to take sides on the matter.
