While speaking at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, a deranged President Trump falsely claimed that he got 52 percent of the female vote in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump referenced speculation ahead of the election that female voters would not turn out to 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.”
In fact, Hillary Clinton received the majority of female votes, with 54 percent casting their vote for the Democrat.
Trump has repeatedly touted his achievements for women as president. On International Women’s Day, Trump released a statement detailing his administration’s work for female entrepreneurs and women in peace and security fields.
Trump was in Pennsylvania in support of GOP House candidate Rick Saccone, who is facing a tough race against Democrat Conor Lamb in the deep-red district’s special election.
Trump won the district by double digits in the election, but recent polls have shown Lamb slightly leading Saccone. The special election is Tuesday, March 13.
