In his Tuesday campaign rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump literally begged “suburban women” to like him. “Somebody said, I don’t know if the suburban woman likes you,” he recalled. “They said, they may not like the way you talk. But I’m about law and order. I’m about having you safe.”

Trump stated that he doesn’t want “low income housing” in suburban communities, and that “suburban women should like me more than anyone here tonight because I ended the regulation that destroyed your neighborhood.”

Trump was referring to an Obama-era law which allows subsidized housing to spread evenly throughout communities.

“So I ask you to do me a favor… Suburban women, will you please like me? I saved your damn neighborhood, ok? The other thing is, I don’t have that much time to be nice. I can do it, but I gotta go quickly.” He also claimed that more women voted for him than Hillary Clinton in 2016, although the 52% he referenced was an estimated margin of white women, as opposed to the female population as a whole. Trump lost to Clinton by 15 points amongst female voters.
