WASHINGTON — President Trump on Friday called on Congress to approve a statue honoring the women’s suffrage movement, saying it would inspire women to keep achieving their dreams.
“I have done more for WOMEN than just about any President in HISTORY!” the president began.
“As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of women’s voting rights, we should build a BEAUTIFUL STATUE in Washington D.C. to honor the many brave women who made this possible for our GREAT COUNTRY,” he continued.
Aug. 26 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
A bill to build the “Every Word We Utter Monument” in DC honoring suffragists who secured women’s voting rights passed the House in February and is now gathering dust in the Senate.
The monument depicts famous suffragists including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony and Harriot Stanton Blatch.
President Trump on Friday called for lawmakers to pass the act “ASAP” saying it would inspire women across the nation.
“It will INSPIRE all women to continue being bold and brave in achieving their DREAMS!” he wrote.
A similar statue honoring women’s rights leaders will be unveiled in Central Park on Aug. 26.
