Trump Calls on Women to March

President Donald Trump called on women across the country to march to celebrate low female unemployment, wealth creation, and economic success.

“Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Jan. 20.

“Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!” he said.

Saturday marked exactly one year since Trump’s inauguration.

During his first year in office, unemployment levels have dropped to their lowest since 2000; the stock market is breaking record after record; consumer confidence is at a 17-year-high; and GDP (gross domestic product) growth is at 3 percent, a mark that some economists had recently considered unattainable. With the passing of the tax reform bill this month, economic growth is expected to continue to accelerate.

Trump’s Tweet likely came in response to a number of women’s protests planned across the country.
