Donald Trump’s boast that he received the majority of the female vote in the 2016 election couldn’t be further from the truth
Donald Trump boasted that he received 52 per cent of the female vote in the 2016 election even though he was running against a woman last night.
The claims, which we aired during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, have quickly been marked as false – with people quick to point out that the stat is based on the number of white women who voted.
According to Washington Post the exit poll shows he got only 41 per cent of the vote from women.
Only a quarter of Hispanic women voted for Trump, and just four per cent of black women.
At the PA rally, which took place shortly after International Women’s Day, Trump said: “Women! We love you! We love you.
“Hey, didn’t we surprise them with women during the election? Remember? “Women won’t like Donald Trump.”
“I said, have I really had that kind of a problem? I don’t think so. But, “Women won’t like Donald Trump. It will be a rough night for Donald Trump because the women won’t come out.”
“We got 52 percent, right?”
