In his latest publicity to suburban housewives on Tuesday afternoon, President Donald Trump vowed that his government will “return your husband to work” when the pandemic-related rise in unemployment has the greatest impact on women.
Trump said at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan: “I love women, I can’t do anything, they are the greatest.” “I love them more than men.”
The president added: “We are attracting your husband and they want to get back to work, right? We are getting your husband back to work.”
The economic impact of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has disproportionately affected American women because they are prevalent in the industries most severely affected by the pandemic. In a report released in August by the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC), it was found that although the demographic accounted for only 49.7% of the total labor force, the number of unemployed women accounted for 53.6% of the total unemployment rate.
The United States has recovered a lot of jobs that were lost between February and April, but the recovery of women has lagged. According to an analysis by NWLC, of the nearly 1.1 million people who left the workforce between August and September, women accounted for 865,000. This number is four times that of the 216,000 men who dropped out of school during that period.
A breakdown of the unemployment rate shows that black and Latino women are more affected than white men and women. In September, the unemployment rate for both ethnic minorities was around 11%, compared with 6.5% for white men and 6.9% for white women.
In the final stage of the game, Trump increased his appeal to suburban women. Some experts say that Republican women in white suburbs are dissatisfied with the president’s job performance and may vote for his moderate Democratic opponent Joe Biden. This political shift may offset Trump’s position in the working class four years ago.
In some states, including the vital battlefield Pennsylvania, suburban women are the main voting group. Opinion polls indicate that the group may be a turning point in the president’s swing state of winning one point in 2016.
At a campaign rally in Johnston, Pennsylvania earlier this month, Trump implored demographics to vote for him. “Do me a favor, woman in the suburbs, can you like me?” he said. “I saved your damn neighbor, okay?”
Recent public opinion surveys show that Biden leads the country among suburban women with 60% support. According to data from the Pew Research Center, in 2016, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton won about 52% of the voting group.
