Days after new sexual assault allegations were lodged against President Donald Trump (in addition to the 25 existing allegations), Second Lady Karen Pence spoke at a Women for Trump event in Minnesota. There, she claimed the man who bragged about forcibly grabbing women "by the p***y" had "empowered women like no other."
Pence was speaking with the President's daughter-in-law Lara Trump and Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany.
Pence addressed women who felt on the fence about voting for Trump, assuring them:
“The president has empowered women like no other. He cares about meeting them where it counts: in their pocketbooks…. Look at the job rate for women. You have to vote for Donald Trump.”
Polls have indicated that Trump's approval rating has dropped in recent months.
Many found the Second Lady's comments ridiculous.

The President will go to Minnesota today to speak at a rally in the district of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Trump has told Omar, an American citizen and Muslim Somalian refugee, to "go back" to where she came from, as well as repeatedly accusing her of hating Jews.
