AINSLEY EARHARDT: Are Republican women in crisis? An op-ed in the “New York Times” thinks so. Dr. Nancy Cohen writing this: “GOP women at both the national and state levels are on the brink of extinction”. But are they really? Let’s ask RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. Ronna, what do you think?
RNC CHAIRWOMAN RONNA MCDANIEL: Oh I think this is fake news. Elise Stefanik had a great response to this. The House has recruited 181 women to run for Congress heading into 2020. It’s a record. And why are Republican women lining up to run for congress? Because we have a message to women across this country that President Trump’s policies have worked for them. Things like doubling the child tax credit, paid leave we have seen for federal workers, that over half of the new jobs, over 4 million new jobs, have gone to women, and record low unemployment. So while they keep pushing this narrative, they always ignore women that are leading the way in the Republican party like Kellyanne Conway, like Ivanka Trump, like Elaine Chao, Gina Haspel, me being only the second woman ever to chair the RNC raising record money. So I think that’s a false headline and women all over this country recognize that President Trump’s policies are working for them.
