Trump: we can't make America great again without women / YouTube

President Trump dropped by the Women's Empowerment Panel at the White House today along with First Lady Melania Trump. ("Her poll numbers went through the roof last week...she has to give us the secret!") He told the assembled crowd, "Only by enlisting the full potential of women in our society will we be truly able to — you have not heard this expression before — make America great again."

Trump cited Abigail Adams, Susan B. Anthony, and Harriet Tubman as examples of women leaders. On Tubman: "She was very, very courageous, believe me."

POTUS also joked that women's success would be "scary" if he weren't president, since "there's no way we [as men] can compete with you, so I wouldn't be happy."
