WASHINGTON: Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, is headling a Women for Trump rally in Marietta, Georgia tonight. Dr. King is a long supporter and defender of President Trump, recognizes an essential truth and that women of all colors are united in that truth. What they want is a safe, nurturing environment in which to raise their children. The ability to put food on the table. Clothing on their bodies. Shoes on their feet. A safe space to live in.
That all children are given the opportunity to thrive. For their children to not be judged by the “color of their skin but by the content of their character. A character that is fostered by a loving home with engaged parents.
In an earlier interview (The Daily Signal) Dr. King says:
There are sins we know now and can call “crimes against humanity,” for instance: sex trafficking, abortion, mistreatment of the homeless, all these types of things. Of course, that would not have been what Martin Luther King Jr. would have wanted us to do to each other.
One of his famous quotes, “We must learn to live together as brothers,” and I’ll add, “as sisters—or perish together as fools.” He fully understood Acts 17:26: “Of one blood, God created the human race.” We’re not separate races and we’re designed to love each other.
President Trump for Women – Women for Trump 2020
Throughout our history, women have dedicated their lives to achieving equal rights for all Americans. They envisioned a society where women could pursue a formal education, start a business, serve in the military, or run for elected office. The example of each of these women motivates successive generations to aspire to greatness and to stand tall in the face of adversity. We remember all the American women, past and present, who have inspired and empowered today’s women to advocate for their beliefs and pursue their dreams without hesitation.
Further on in the proclamation, the President says:
My Administration continues to empower women by creating unprecedented opportunities for them. The United States economy is booming like never before. An all-time record number of women are employed, and, just last year, women filled 58 percent of new jobs. Our economic agenda, including the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and the elimination of unnecessary and burdensome regulations, has driven women’s unemployment to the lowest level in 65 years. My Administration fought to provide tax relief to parents by doubling the child tax credit and preserving the child and dependent care credit. To help women thrive in the labor force and provide for their families, we developed a tax credit for employers who offer paid family and medical leave, and I have called on the Congress to pass a nationwide paid family leave program.
Trump campaign seeking support from women – all women
In the 2016 election, 52% of white women supported the President with 42% of all women voters supporting him. The President’s efforts on behalf of women in the workplace, and at home, should hopefully increase his percentages among women. Particularly as liberal socialist democrats, if taking control of the White House, would revert those gains to Obama-era numbers.
Female unemployment, at a 50-year low of 3.9 percent under Trump, is less than half the rate it was as recently as President Obama’s second term.
Statistics confirmed by Americans for Tax (Unemployment Rate Hits 50-Year Low)
Key demographics are also seeing record levels of unemployment:
- Unemployment for adult women is at 3.1 percent, a 66 year low.
- Unemployment for Hispanics is at 4.2 percent – the lowest rate since this data was first collected in 1973.
- Unemployment for veterans is at 2.3 percent, a 19 year low.
Progress for women under President Trump
Wages for women have increased markedly. Women-owned businesses have grown by 114 percent over the past 20 years compared to just 44 percent overall. There are an estimated 11.6 million women-owned businesses, about 40 percent of the total businesses in the country:
Kauffman (Report) points to a major hurdle to greater female entrepreneurship: childcare. It suggests that child-care burdens swamp female entrepreneurship opportunities in a way that they do not for men. It argues that if public policy could help overcome such challenges, women would “unleash a wealth of ingenuity and creativity that can spark a new era of entrepreneur-led growth in America.”
Such public policy took effect this year in the form of tax cuts. A central component of the tax cuts is a doubling of the child tax credit to $2,000 per child. This is not a deduction but a direct tax bill offset, meaning a mother with two kids will save $4,000 as a result. The tax legislation also makes the first $1,400 of this credit refundable, meaning that low-income mothers actually get a payout in addition to their regular tax refund. It also creates a tax credit for non-dependent children — think college-aged — for the first time.
Allowing ordinary mothers to keep more of their hard-earned money makes it easier for them to pay for increasing child-care costs, giving them the freedom to pursue their entrepreneurial passions. (Women Are Winning in the Trump Economy)
The Kauffman Foundation report also lauds women entrepreneurs:
Women entrepreneurs bring particular sets of skills that not only set them apart from their male counterparts but also lend themselves to being successful entrepreneurs.
- Women entrepreneurs have a more nuanced view of risk, identifying more strongly than men as financial risk-takers while remaining concerned about “foolhardy risks.”
- Women display greater ambitions to become serial entrepreneurs than their male counterparts.
- More broadly, an increase in the number of women in business leadership positions is correlated with increased business returns and payout ratios.
Woman’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative
Another important action by the President is the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, or W-GDP
W-GDP establishes an innovative new fund at the U.S. Agency for International Development to support proposals that enable women to succeed in the economy. The president has directed USAID to allocate an initial $50 million for this new fund.
According to the White House, the W-GDP will be a three-pillar structure to support governmentwide programs and partnerships.
- Pillar One will advance workforce development and vocational education for women.
- Pillar Two will empower women to succeed as entrepreneurs. Women own or run more than a third of all small and medium-size enterprises in emerging markets, yet the United Nations has found that less than 1% of spending by large corporations on suppliers is allocated to women-owned businesses.
- Pillar Three focuses on eliminating the legal, regulatory and cultural barriers that prevent women from participating in their local economies. According to the World Bank, more than 100 countries prohibit women from working in specific industries, which means 2.7 billion women are legally restricted from having the same choice of jobs as men.
I guess another road block is up and the funny part is that won’t stop him from receiving donations or support from America. Just last week at one fundraiser the campaign raised 12 million in a day. I guess us women are a threat #WomenForTrump https://t.co/tGhNKNiLQF

Kayleigh McEnany, the national press secretary for President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign confirms that women continue to make great strides under the Trump administration.
“Today, under the leadership of President Trump, the party is again pioneering the way for women in the workplace,” McEnany wrote in a Fox News op-ed. “For more than a year under President Trump, the unemployment rate for women has been below 4 percent month after month.”
“By contrast, the unemployment rate never once fell below 4 percent under either Presidents Barack Obama or George W. Bush. Overall, female unemployment is at its lowest point in 65 years.”
In interviews, McEnany notes that President Trump is the first president to include paid family leave in a federal budget. A policy that helps to promote mothers in the workforce.
“Additionally, President Trump ensured that $2.4 billion be made available to the Child Care and Development Fund, which now provides more than $8 billion to low-income families in need of access to childcare.
President Trump has doubled the Child Tax Credit and added thousands back into the average Americans’ paycheck through tax cuts and wage growth.”
Women for Trump 2020
The Women for Trump coalition is confident that ladies nationwide “have taken notice” of the efforts of the President on behalf of families and women. (Women Who Love Trump – His approval among female Republicans is 93%—higher than among GOP men.)
Moreover, that women will be behind the reelection Trump on November 3, 2020.
Trump 2020 campaign adviser Katrina Pierson praised President Trump for his record helping women, minorities, and the forgotten men and women across the United States.
“The time for skepticism on the Trump economy has long since long come and gone. This isn’t a flash in the pan,” Pierson writes in the Detroit News. “Trump has achieved the strongest overall economic growth since the start of the Great Recession, and he’s made sure that this time the prosperity is shared by ordinary Americans, especially women, and not just the ones with jobs on Wall Street.”
“With unemployment holding steady in the mid-3% range, Americans are enjoying the lowest jobless rate since 1969.
Women are doing even better, achieving a 3.6% unemployment rate last year, the lowest female unemployment rate since 1954, when far fewer women were in the workforce. And the jobs being created in the Trump economy are good ones, too — wage growth is beating inflation consistently for the first time in decades.”
