Trump honors women in Wednesday morning tweets

Wednesday is International Women’s Day, a day designated to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

President Trump sent out two Twitter posts Wednesday morning, acknowledging the special day.

“I have tremendous respect for women, and the many roles they serve that are vital to the fabric of our society and our economy.”

“On International Women’s Day, join me in honoring the critical role of women here in America and around the world.”

The president then added a report from LinkedIn about jobs.

“LinkedIn Workforce Report: January and February were the strongest consecutive months for hiring since August and September 2015.”

Trump did not give any acknowledgment to the organized “anti-Trump” resistance movement called “A Day Without A Woman” that plans to use the day to stage protests and demonstrations. Protesters are calling for women to stay away from work and school.

In some areas, including Washington, D.C., so many teachers have requested the day off that entire schools had to close, leaving parents scrambling to make childcare arrangement for their children.

Female House Democrats — the ones who wore white at Trump’s congressional speech — have announced they will join the “Day Without a Woman” protest. The representatives plan to wear red all day and will stage a walk-out at noon.
