While speaking on The View Monday morning, hours before the first presidential debate, GOP candidate Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, reminded the hosts of what she felt was her boss’s true record on women’s issues.
“I can tell you the thing about Donald Trump that I hope you would all give credence to is he is surrounded by strong women,” she said. “He has employed thousands and thousands of women over the years.”
This statement was made amid a discussion about whether or not Trump should go after Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton at the debate over the way she targeted her husband’s alleged sexual assault victims.
To see the full discussion with Conway, watch the video below, though the part regarding jobs for women can be heard around the 4:40 mark:
Writing for Yahoo News last October, chief national correspondent Lisa Belkin confirmed that Trump has indeed hired many women during his long career as a businessman. He also treated them well, she maintained.
She reached this conclusion by speaking with a number of Trump’s employees, including Sarah Malone, executive vice president of the Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeen, Scotland.
“Unlike many employers, women are given equal status in the business,” Malone reportedly wrote in an email at the time. “I report directly to Trump. He is tough, but he’s a great motivator and empowers his team to get results.”
Likewise, a profile of Trump written a month later by The Washington Post also confirmed that Trump has treated his female employees well.
“Many women who have worked closely with Trump say he was a corporate executive ahead of his time in providing career advancement for women,” the paper wrote.
