Donald Trump says he was 'the one that really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women'

Donald Trump wants everyone to know that Hillary Clinton isn't the only one shattering glass ceilings. On Monday night, Clinton became the first woman to ever land enough delegates to become a major party's presumptive presidential nominee. But Trump pointed out that he, too, has done great work for women's progress. "Number one, I have great respect for women," Trump told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News, in an interview that was recorded before news broke that Clinton was the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee. "I was the one that really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women, more than anybody in the construction industry, and my relationship, I think, is going to end up being very good with women."

Trump has often highlighted the fact that he hired women to executive positions — including his former wife, Ivana — throughout his construction career. However, that's reportedly not a practice he's employed during his campaign. A report by The Boston Globe reveals there are far fewer women than men on Trump's campaign, and that men on the campaign earn "about 35 percent more" than women.
