When you think of Donald Trump, the first person that comes to mind shouldn’t be Mother Teresa. But that’s the case for Former “Apprentice” contestant Tana Goertz, who compared the president to Mother Teresa when it comes to women’s issues.
In a brief interview with one of CBS News’s 2020 campaign reporters, Adam Brewster, Goertz was asked about how the Trump campaign can regain some of the support from female voters who previously voted for the president in 2016.
“If Donald Trump was running, we would have never lost anything. So there’s different candidates running that don’t have the power that Donald Trump has and the pull, so I can’t speak for why. That’s kind of a, that one’s like comparing apples and oranges,” said Goertz, who currently works a senior employee for the Trump campaign in Iowa, according to Rolling Stone.
“So let’s move beyond that because Cindy Axne, you know, she won,” Goertz said before laughingly asking the reporter to “leave that out” after a brief pause.
“So let’s just say that, what is our message to those women? My message to those women would be Donald Trump is going to work harder, longer and more aggressively and do more for you than Cindy Axne ever would,” she went on to say.
“I know this man, I know his stamina, I know his work ethic, and I know what he’s capable of. And there’s not a person alive that literally has done so much for a female, for the female population,” she continued.
“I can’t think of one person that I could go, except for Mother Teresa. I mean, literally, who has done more for women in office than Donald Trump?” she went on.
“I can’t think of one person. Surely not gonna be Cindy Axne,” she added.
