Trump Claims Ivanka and Melania 'Love The Women And The Women Love Them'—But People Disagree

President Donald Trump said that his daughter Ivanka Trump and wife Melania Trump "love the women," and vice versa, but recent polls and some social media users suggest otherwise.

The president, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women, made the claim about the first daughter and first lady during a rally in North Dakota on Wednesday night. He started by touting Ivanka Trump's advocacy the child tax credit to be part of tax reform legislation.

"Darling, nobody knows what that is," the president said he told his daughter. "The women know," she responded, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Trump touts daughter Ivanka’s role in pushing the child tax credit in the tax reform legislation. He says he told her: “Darling, nobody knows what it is.”

“The women know,” he says Ivanka responded. “My daughter and my wife Melania, they love the women,” he adds.

"My daughter and my wife, Melania, they love the women, and the women love them," the president said, and added, "And the men love them."

But recent polls do not reflect what the president stated.

Melania Trump had a 49 percent favorability rating in a June 6 Quinnipiac University Poll.

"First Lady Melania Trump might have the best favorability rating of anyone in or close to the White House, similar to Michelle Obama's favorability in 2010," Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director Tim Malloy said in a statement.

But Melania Trump's favorability rating means that not even half of Americans have a great impression of her.

Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump has an even lower rating, with only 43 percent viewing her favorably in a June 15 Ipsos poll conducted for the Daily Beast.

Men overall seem to like the first daughter and first lady more than women do. Ivanka Trump was viewed favorably by 32 percent of men ages 18 to 34, 48 percent of men ages 34 to 64 and 53 percent of men ages 65 and older, according to an April 2017 SurveyMonkey poll conducted for Cosmopolitan.

By comparison, Ivanka Trump was viewed in a favorable light by 21 percent of women ages 18 to 34, 39 percent of women ages 34 to 64 and 45 percent of women ages 65 and older in the same poll. The numbers were nearly identical for the first lady.

Ivanka Trump has also come under scrutiny for her initial promises to be a champion for women's rights and perceived failure to follow through. She committed to closing the wage gap for women on her father's campaign trail in summer 2016, but on Equal Pay Day last April stayed silent on the issue.

Melania Trump has received sympathy from some women since reports broke out of her husband's alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford. But the first lady's decision to wear a jacket with "I Really Don't Care, Do U?" lettering to visit migrant children in Texas drew much criticism.
