Donald Trump vowed Sunday to be a lady’s man if he’s elected president.
“I will be phenomenal to the women. I want to help women,” he declared on CBS’s “Face The Nation”
His pro-woman remarks come in the wake of his controversial statements after last Thursday’s GOP presidential debate, where he claims he was treated unfairly by moderator Megyn Kelly, whom he said had “blood coming out of her wherever.”
Trump insisted to CNN’s “State of the Union,” that he wasn’t referring to Kelly’s period.
“Only a sick person would make a statement like that,” Trump said Sunday morning.
Trump added that he has a history of helping women.
“Women’s health issues are such a big thing to me,” he said, noting that he was “one of the first people in the construction industry in New York to put women in charge of projects.”
Among the critics blasting him for his latest controversial comments was Carly Fiorina, who is competing with Trump for the Republican nod.
Mr. Trump: There. Is. No. Excuse.

“I think women of all kinds are really sort of horrified by this,” she told “Face the Nation.” “Just like I think, by the way, women of virtually all kinds are horrified by the Planned Parenthood videos. I mean, there are certain things that cut across political boundaries.”
