In a piece for Glamour, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) says, President-elect Donald Trump is “the most brazenly misogynistic candidate in modern history.”
“Many Americans hoped 2016 was going to be the year we elected the first woman to the White House,” Ellison says in the piece published Wednesday. “Instead, the first female nominee of any major party lost to the most brazenly misogynistic candidate in modern history—Donald Trump. He won with the support of over 50 percent of white women who voted.”
While Ellison doesn’t mention any specific quotes by Trump, he says Americans have been urged not to take Trump's campaign comments literally.
“In that case, what should we take seriously? The truth is, Donald Trump’s offensive, anti-woman rhetoric has been mirrored by Republican policy for decades,” Ellison says.
“We should take the President-elect at his word. And even if we don’t, we should take seriously Republican efforts to limit women’s healthcare, revoke women’s autonomy over their own bodies, and destroy the safety net that so many women and their families depend on.”
“We need to figure out how to step up in 2017 and beyond to make America as fair as we know it can be,” Ellison says.
