The president of the United States said Sunday that he plans to make his “new plan” for women’s voting more appealing than the previous Republican plan, and will work to get them to vote on Election Day, instead of the other way around.
Speaking to Fox News Sunday’s “The Five,” President Donald Trump said he would also focus on expanding the number of female voters.
“I think the first step will be to get more women into the voting booth,” Trump said.
“And I think that will be a good thing for the country.”
The president added that he would not let his plan “fail” because it is “going to be really great.”
“I think I’ve just given my plan a little bit of a facelift.
I’m not going to be the one to say, ‘Hey, stop the plan.’
I’ll have to be a little more flexible,” Trump told host Chris Wallace.
“But the new plan is really going to get people to vote.
I’ve got a lot of people that are going to vote.”
Trump’s comments came a day after he was criticized by some conservatives for his plan to expand the number for women to register to vote and also the idea of allowing women to become legal U.S. citizens.
The president has faced criticism from some conservatives over the last several days, after he told Fox News that “we’re not going in the wrong direction” on women’s issues.
“The idea that women are not interested in getting involved in this is not a good idea,” he told Wallace.
