Trump and conservative women

Hosted by

Melania Trump will be the headline speaker Monday at the Republican Convention in Cleveland. Her husband, Donald Trump has had problems courting women voters. A Washington Post poll last month found that more than three quarters of women voters had an unfavorable opinion of him. And his choice of Indiana governor Mike Pence as a running mate may not be helping much. Pence has signed some of the most stringent restrictions on abortion access in the nation. As a congressman, Pence tried to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood funding. Well, on day one of the Republican National Convention, we wanted to hear from some conservative women about how they feel about their candidates’ positions on women’s issues.
