Donald Trump seems puzzled by women, seeing them as smart and capable, but also manipulative and hyper-aggressive. Women must sense his ambivalence, because 60 percent said they would refuse to vote for Trump in a general election, according to a March Quinnipiac University poll. One thing money can’t buy this billionaire is understanding women.

Trump’s Book

In Trump’s book “The Art Of The Deal,” he wrote about how he feels about women, a CNN article reports:

‘The thing about women [is they] have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression “the weaker sex” was either very naïve or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body parts.’

Women And Politics

Trump talks about connecting Hillary Clinton to Bill Clinton’s affairs:

‘He was a disaster, and she’s been the total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives.’

One wonders if he really does not get Clinton’s appeal. Of course, he knows she is a woman, but:

‘She’s got nothing else going on.’

Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski thinks Trump’s image will improve:

‘Donald Trump’s numbers are going to be strong with women because they want the same thing that everybody else wants.

‘They don’t vote based on gender. They vote on competency — and that competency includes making sure that the nation is secure, which Donald Trump has pledged he will do, making sure we don’t have illegal immigrants pouring across the border, and making sure individuals have opportunities for jobs.

‘Those are the things that cut across socio-economic status, they cut across gender, they cut across race.’

Trump’s Mother, Mary Trump

Trump owns his biggest problem with women, comparing them to his mother:

‘The problem [is] having to compare them to my incredible mother, Mary Trump.’

Mrs. Trump was “smart as hell” and “a really great homemaker and wife to my father:”

‘For a man to be successful he needs support at home, just like my father had from my mother, not someone who is always griping and bitching. When a man has to endure a woman who is not supportive and complains constantly about his not being home enough or not being attentive enough, he will not be very successful unless he is able to cut the cord.’

In his book, Trump emphasizes that wives should play supporting roles to their husbands. Trump said he should have never let his first wife run one of his casinos:

‘She did an excellent job at both [but] work was all she wanted to talk about. I will never again give a wife responsibility within my business. Ivana worked very hard, and I appreciate the effort, but I soon began to realize that I was married to a business person rather than a wife.’

Trump’s Wife, Melania Trump

Trump’s current wife Melania Trump, a former model, has her own jewelry line for QVC. She talks about how important her career is, but considers herself a “full-time mom” to her son Barron, saying “That is my first job.”

She tries to explain, that if someone attacks her husband:

‘He will attack back, no matter who you are.’

‘He encourages everybody, if you’re a man or a woman.’

Trump’s Daughter, Ivanka Trump

His daughter Ivanka says that her father taught her that there:

‘…wasn’t anything that I couldn’t do if I set my mind to it…[He hired]incredible female role models [in] the highest executive positions at the Trump organization.’

Trump’s Employee, Jill Cremer

Jill Cremer was one of Trump’s vice presidents, overseeing real estate development at the Trump Organization from 1998 to 2008. She said it was hard to leave, and she regretted it afterward:

‘He was a fantastic employer. I don’t have one bad thing to say about him. He’d say “I believe in you. I’m gonna give you this — now go run with it.” And I did it.’

Cremer said Trump never spoke poorly about women to her or in her presence:

‘I don’t know how to explain it. But, when you’re on the inside, it’s different.’

A Different View, Barbara Res

Not all women have the same opinion of Trump. Barbara Res worked for Trump from 1978 to 1996 and was involved in managing the construction of the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Placing a woman at that level in construction at the time was a rare move.

But in her book “All Alone On The 68th Floor: How One Woman Changed the Face of Construction” she said Trump became more distant over time. Then in a New York Daily News essay, she said:

‘[Trump was] nasty to the people who work for him, very abusive and curt, [with an] incredible temper … he lashes out at everyone.’

‘Of all the people I know who worked for or with Trump, including contractors, lawyers, architects, employees, only a very few actually like him. Some respect him, some don’t. Many hate his guts.’

Res say Trump was good at finding talent and had several strong women working for him at one time. She said he told her she was “a killer” and the need to be liked by those who worked for her was a weakness:

‘Later, he would hire and promote many people with questionable qualifications. I could see, over time, his growing need to be coddled and agreed with. [By the 1980’s] he had taken to decorating his office with beautiful women.’

In a phone interview with CNN, Res said:

‘He changed. I think it was fame and fortune, absolutely.’

Trump wrote in his book:

‘I don’t know why, but I seem to bring out either the best or worst in women. They’re really a lot different than portrayed [and] far worse than men, far more aggressive.’

The level of some women’s aggression surprised him. For example, he tells of a married socialite propositioning him on the dance floor and a bride-to-be “jumping on top of me wanting to get screwed:”

‘The level of aggression was unbelievable. This is not infrequent, it happens all the time. Their sex drive makes us look like babies.’

Trump has said he “loves women, finds them beautiful, and is not a sexist.” He admires their intelligence and says they should be commended for their “tremendous power, which most men are afraid to admit they have.”

At age 70, if Trump hasn’t figured out women, he is not likely to ever understand them.
