Pennsylvania—President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign officially launched their “Women for Trump” coalition and nearly 1,000 women of all different ages showed up in support.
The packed room at the Valley Forge Casino Resort—located in the area known as King of Prussia—pulsated with so much energy that the crowd would regularly stand up on their feet and cheer.
Among those speaking at the July 16 event included Lara Trump, senior adviser for the Trump 2020 campaign, Ronna McDaniel, the Chair of the Republican National Committee, Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, and others. Pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk were spotted sitting at the front row in the audience.
Women who support the president are continuing to grow, according to the speakers. Of those who donated to Trump’s 2020 campaign in the first quarter this year, over 50 percent were women. In 2016, only 25 percent of donations came from women, Parscale said.
“You tell me if more women are supporting Trump,” Lara Trump said at the coalition rollout. “People vote with their wallets and women are voting with their wallets.”
Lara said the average amount donated to Trump’s re-election this year was $41.
McDaniel, the first to speak at the launch, ticked off a long list of Trump’s policies which she said have directly benefited women, including job creation.
Since 2017, out of the around 6 million new jobs created, nearly 3.1 million have been jobs for women, McDaniel said.
Low unemployment records for women were also touted by the speakers.
“For women like the ones in this room, unemployment has been the lowest it’s been in 65 years,” Kimberly Guilfoyle, an attorney and girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr. said.
The fake news media and how they portrayed women as not supporting Trump was a much-discussed topic.
“You are groups on the ground, you are people disseminating the message,” Lara Trump told supporters. “Sometimes when you watch the fake news, you got to remind your friends out there to vote for Trump.”
Lara brought up how in 2016, Trump told her to win the state of North Carolina. She described her efforts in how she and a number of other women toured the state in a bus.
They regularly saw support from the public on the trail, something she said was not reflected in the news. She said this media suppression continues today.
Trump has placed a number of women in key positions in his administration, including counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway; CIA Director Gina Haspel, newly appointed press secretary Stephanie Grisham, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and more.
“50 percent of women working in the 2020 campaign are women,” Parscale added.
Parscale said the campaign is using different polling techniques and artificial intelligence. He said the decision to host the event in Pennsylvania at this location came from analyzing the data sets.
Another topic on everyone’s mind was denouncing socialism. Nearly all spoke out against it and described how America will never follow in its footsteps.
Trump said at his re-election rally last month that the choice in the upcoming election is between the radical socialism embraced by the Democratic field and his agenda of freedom and the American dream.
Bernadette Repisky from Warminster Township, Bucks County, planned to attend as soon as she heard about the event. She said the day’s rollout was a counter to the fake news depiction that women don’t support Trump.
“You see this room today? Did you see what happened today? It’s just not true,” she told The Epoch Times. “The media tries so hard to push their own narrative. Women are going to come out for Trump.”
