Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivered a speech during his tour of New Hampshire said that some women wear burkas so they don’t have to wear makeup.
Here’s are Trump comments:
Then I saw women interviewed. They said, ‘We want to wear them. We’ve worn them for a thousand years. Why would anyone tell us not to?’ They want to! What the hell are we getting involved for? Fact it’s easier. You don’t have to put on makeup. Look at how beautiful everyone looks. Wouldn’t it be easier? Right? Wouldn’t that be easy?
