Trump Plans To Cut Fundings To Every Violence Against Women Grant & Program

Donald Trump has a well known past of harassing women. He even said it himself in an interview where he gloated about groping women. So the next move he did wasn’t surprising.

Trump is now planning to get rid of all grant programs that the Department of Justice (DoJ) has to fund measures to eliminate violence against women.

To make things clear, the Trump Administration is planning to gut grants that are used for programs that help protect women from violence in order to save a small amount on government expenses. And not to mention that the programs also help protect children who have been victims to domestic violence.

Statistics show that domestic violence and harassment on women in the U.S. is a serious problem. And Trump knows, as he’s been involved in harassing women himself.

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. 1 in 5 women in the United States has been raped in their lifetime.

These statistics are real and it’s a real scary thought that Trump wants to stop funding programs that help fight against harassment and domestic violence.
