During a Thursday Granite City, IL speech at one of U.S. Steel’s mill, Trump touted job numbers, giving himself a pat on the back for recent employment growth before erroneously claiming he secured the majority of the women’s vote.
Addressing a cheering crowd, Trump said, “I did win that women’s vote, didn’t I? Remember? Remember they said, why would women vote for Trump? I don’t know, but I got more than she did. That’s pretty good.” Contrary to Trump’s assertion, 54 percent of women voted for his challenger, Hillary Clinton, compared to his 42 percent.
