About: Women
Donald Trump dramatically overstated how many women voted for him in 2016 by claiming that 52% of women voted for him and Mike Pence in the 2016 election, which is 9% more than the actual number of women who voted for them. Trump may have meant to say that 52% of *white* women voted for him, which would have been a correct statement.
