Trump: "Proud" That More Women In The Workforce Than Ever Before "On My Watch"

|

President Trump made remarks about female employment at a 'Women of America' panel held at the White House on Tuesday. Trump said he is "proud" that under his watch more women are in the workforce than ever.

"Women in the workforce reached a record high. More women in the workforce today than ever before. That’s really terrific, and especially since it’s on my watch. I feel very proud of that," he said.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Women represent half of the population, but they care about 100 percent of the issues that face the nation, that’s for sure. We’re making incredible progress. The women’s unemployment rate hit the lowest level that it’s been in 17 years. Well, that’s something. And women in the workforce reached a record high. More women in the workforce today than ever before. That’s really terrific, and especially since it’s on my watch. I feel very proud of that.



I have to tell you a statistic that just came out recently, as you saw, that the black unemployment rate — the African American unemployment rate is the lowest it’s ever been in the history of the report. So we’re very honored by that. It’s really a great, great thing.
