Trump to Woman: You’ll ‘Make the Same’ as a Man ‘If You Do as Good a Job’
TRUMP: "I feel that. Go ahead."
AUDIENCE MEMBER: "OK. OK. So, maybe I'm wrong, maybe you can prove me wrong, but I don't think that you are a friend to woman. How--(Applause)--"
TRUMP: "I knew I shouldn't pick her. All right. So let me give you that answer right now. I respect women incredibly. I have had women working for me in positions that they've never worked in terms of construction, in terms of so many different jobs. I had a woman who was in charge of the building of Trump Tower many years ago before I was even thought--before anybody would have even thought of it and did a fantastic job. I have given women more opportunity than I would say virtually anybody in the construction industry. I have a daughter named Ivanka and a wife named Melania who constantly want me to talk about women's health issues because they know how I feel about it and they know how I feel about women. I respect women. I love women. I cherish women. You know, Hillary Clinton said: 'he shouldn't cherish.' I said: 'I do cherish women'. I do cherish. My mother was one of the great people of the world, may be the greatest ever--my mother. I respect women and I'm going to take care of women. You know, Jeb Bush didn't want to fund women's health issues. You read that, you saw that, and then he took it back later. I will take care of women and I have great respect for women. And I do cherish women and I will take care of women and I'll take care of us also from the enemy meaning the enemy on different shores that's looking to come in and do numbers. Believe me, I will take care of the people in this country far better than any of the folks that you're looking at right now. That I can tell you. OK? Yeah, go ahead. [crosstalk] I thought that was finished.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: "I want to get paid the same as a man and I think you understand that. So if you become president will women make the same as men, and do I get to choose what I do with my body?"(Applause)
TRUMP: "You're gonna make the same if you do as good a job."
