Trump: Women being “raped at levels that nobody’s ever seen before”

President Trump said on Thursday, when talking about immigration at a West Virginia event, that women are being "raped at levels that nobody's ever seen before." Trump was in West Virginia for a tax reform discussion.

Take note: Trump's comment about "this journey coming up" appears to reference the caravan of people seeking asylum in the U.S. coming through South America, which he has commented on before. Per BuzzFeed's Adolfo Flores, who is traveling with the group, there have been no rapes reported "in or around the caravan."
