Trump extended his blunt-force brand of diplomacy and non-interventionist stance to women’s rights, saying that America should stop meddling in Middle Eastern affairs because Muslim women there “don’t want freedom,” as evidenced by their desire to wear burkas or niqabs, which cover their faces.
CBS News “With the women over there, they don’t have to wear the you-know-what,” Trump said referring to the veils worn by some Muslim women.
“And then I said, ‘Oh well that makes sense. That’s nice.’ Then, I saw women interviewed. They said, ‘We want to wear them. We’ve worn them for a thousand years. Why would anyone tell us?’ They want to. What the hell are we getting involved for?
The fact is it’s easier. You don’t have to put on make-up. Look how beautiful everyone looks. Wouldn’t it be easier if “mwah” (kissing sound)? Right? Wouldn’t that be easy? I tell you if I was a woman – “mwah” – I’m ready darling. Let’s go.”
