In the past, women were repeatedly assaulted by Donald Trump. The facts and records show it, including his smutty words and behavior. There are no excuses except people like him. Ignorance and persons lacking civility might condone or ignore his behavior as they voted for him. The majority of Americans did not.
Now, President Trump has staffed his government, mostly with wealthy white men and a few token rich women. That is the pattern which he continues.
Trump has assaulted the law by failing to come clean in abiding by the emolument clause of the US Constitution. He operates with unresolved conflicts with questions about his relationship with Russians lingering too.
His performance in business that includes at least six bankruptcies that harmed suppliers and small businesses are part of the evidence of his ruthlessness and bad judgment.
Trump is a master con man who succeeded in garnering the Electoral Votes to steal the office of President. Even if you acknowledge his political success at winning, Americans should not feel that his bigotry toward women, minorities, Muslims and immigrants is acceptable. It isn't acceptable from him, nor is it acceptable from Republicans and citizens of the United States of America.
It is for equality, liberty, justice, and fairness for all that women take the lead in protesting today. As Trump's actions inflict damage on the middle class and poor, the audience of protesters will include men too.
It would be a great thing for women to seize the moment and grab the power that they hold in their hands and in numbers.
It was just weeks ago that a tape emerged of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women. Since then, Trump has been accused of harassment and assault by a number of women, with several coming forward to share their harrowing stories of alleged misconduct by a so-called “megalomaniac” who also happens to be running for president. The Cut has compiled a list of all the new allegations against Trump, as well as past accusations of assault, harassment, and discrimination by women."
