While Donald Trump was speaking at the No Labels Problem Solver Convention in New Hampshire on Monday, a young woman spoke up to confront the GOP frontrunner about his treatment of women. “Maybe you can prove me wrong, but I don’t think you’re a friend to women,” she said. After joking that he knew he should not have picked her, Trump explained exactly why he is indeed worthy of female voters.

“Let me give you that answer right now,” Trump said, while the woman attempted to grab the microphone again. “I respect women incredibly. I have had women working for me in positions that they have never worked in terms of construction, in terms of so many different jobs. I had a woman who was in charge of the building of Trump Tower many years ago, before anybody would have even thought it, and did a fantastic job.”

“I have given women more opportunity than I would say virtually anybody in the construction industry,” he continued. Trump then turned in a more personal direction: “I have a daughter named Ivanka and a wife named Melania who constantly want me to talk about women’s health issues because they know how I feel about it, and they know how I feel about women.”

“I respect women. I love women. I cherish women,” Trump insisted. “My mother was one of the great people of the world, maybe the greatest ever, my mother. I respect women, and I’m going to take care of women.” Meanwhile, the young woman who asked the question can be seen looking on indignantly, arms folded across her chest.

Trump could not resist sneaking in a jab at his opponent, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. “You know, Jeb Bush didn’t want to fund women’s health issues. You read that, you saw that, and then he took it back later. I will take care of women, and I have great respect for women, and I do cherish women,” Trump said.

Some people (including various commenters on the YouTube video below) say that the woman who asked the question was a plant and an intern for Bush campaign.
