Rival Candidate Sends Intern To Rally In Attempt To Embarrass Donald Trump
Donald Trump was confronted by a young woman Monday, who had doubts about his views on women.
Lauren Batchelder: “So, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe you can prove me wrong, but I don’t think that you are a friend to women.”
Donald Trump: “I knew I shouldn’t have picked her.”
Mr. Trump told the crowd that he respects women and employs many women in his organization.
Donald Trump: “I respect women incredibly. I have given women more opportunity than I would say, virtually anybody in the construction industry.”
The woman’s identity was later revealed as a plant working for another candidate.
Trump tweeted Tuesday: “The arrogant young woman who questioned me in such a nasty fashion at No Labels yesterday was a Jeb staffer.
The woman is Lauren Batchelder, whose LinkedIn profile shows she is an intern for Jeb Bush.
At the New Hampshire rally, Lauren failed to embarrass Trump with her questions about equal pay and women’s reproductive rights.
Lauren Batchelder: “So, if you become president, will a woman make the same as a man? And do I get to choose what I do with my body?”
Donald Trump: “You’re going to make the same if you do as good a job. You’re going to make the same if you do as good a job and I happen to be pro-life. OK? I’m pro-life. OK.”
