President Donald Trump took to Twitter to celebrate International Women’s Day on Wednesday, tweeting about his “tremendous respect” for females that are “vital to the fabric of our society.”
Trump has had an interesting relationship with women since announcing his intentions to run for president. His campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was the first successful female campaign manager to ever oversee a presidential bid. Trump is also extremely close with his daughter, Ivanka, and has allowed her to be a vital part of his political team.
Trump recently addressed the nation via Facebook Live, saying the advancement of women entrepreneurs and business leaders is one of his top priorities.
“To truly succeed as a country, we must realize our full potential of women in our economy,” Trump said in the three-minute pre-taped video. “As president, I am committed to ensuring women entrepreneurs have equal access to the capitol, markets and networks of support that they need.”
However, the day after Trump was sworn is as the 45th President of the United States, hundreds of thousands of protesters took part in the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and in several other cities around the world.
Trump has also been accused of sleaziness, or worse, by a variety of women over the years. Back in 2005, Trump made hot-mic comments to then-“Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush that resulted in outrage when the tape was leaked prior to the election.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab em’ by the p–sy. You can do anything,” Trump told Bush at the time.
The comments resulted in Bush losing his gig at NBC’s “Today” show, but didn’t hurt Trump on Election Day.
