(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said on PBS “NewsHour” on Thursday night that when she spoke at the Democratic National Convention of President Donald Trump’s “disrespect’ for “women” she was referring to his “policies that we know are anti-women and his conduct.”

“And so we want to protect a woman's right to choose and preserve Roe v. Wade,” Pelosi said.

“We want to have guarantee of affordable, quality child care, and able to unleash the full power of women,” she said. 

“We also want to have strength in Social Security and equal pay for equal work,” Pelosi said.

“And who's standing in the way?  Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump. To name a few of our women-oriented priorities to unleash the power of women,” she said.

Here is the part of the transcript from PBS “NewsHour” where Nancy Pelosi talks about President Trump’s disrespect for women:”

Judy Woodruff: “Again, we heard you say last night, you've seen, and I'm quoting, ‘first hand, President Trump's disrespect for facts, for working families and for women, in particular.’  What were you referring to?

Nancy Pelosi: “I was referring to his policies that we know are anti-women and his conduct.  But let's just talk about the policies, if we will.  

“I went on to say that we know what he probably doesn't: that when women succeed, America succeeds. And so we want to protect a woman's right to choose and preserve Roe v. Wade.  We want to have guarantee of affordable, quality child care, and able to unleash the full power of women.  We also want to have strength in Social Security and equal pay for equal work.  And who's standing in the way?  Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump.  To name a few of our women-oriented priorities to unleash the power of women.”
