Donald Trump has spent his entire career demeaning women and dismissing the need to provide meaningful support working families.

Fresh off of accusations that Trump’s campaign manager allegedly assaulted a woman at one of his media events, the Trump campaign forced a domestic violence shelter on Long Island to close yesterday so he could hold another rally.
