I’m ‘America First.’ We have been disrespected, mocked and ripped off for many many years by people that were smarter, shrewder, tougher. We were the big bully, but we were not smartly led.

Donald Trump insists he respects women

Donald Trump has been relentlessly assailed for his comments about women, and in recent days, the issue has again come to the fore. 

On Saturday, Trump sent out a tweet insisting that "nobody has more respect for women" than he does. 

Earlier this week, Trump threatened to "spill the beans" about Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's wife after a pro-Cruz super PAC used a nude magazine photo of Trump's wife, Melania, a former model, in an ad targeting Mormon voters. 

Trump then retweeted a comparison of an unflattering image of Heidi Cruz and a glamorous photo of his own wife, Melania. 

Since Trump entered the presidential race, the front-runner has repeatedly battled with Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly, even suggesting that she was menstruating when she questioned him at a debate in August. Moreover, his comments about the looks of his one-time challenger, Carly Fiorina, drew scorn. 

Will it matter when it comes to female voters? Yes, according to this report on how women view Trump.
