President Donald Trump made another appeal directly to suburban women voters during his Carson City, Nevada, rally Sunday evening, openly campaigning toward a crucial voting demographic where he has lost ground in the polls.
In the middle of a non-sequitur on water regulations, Trump began to discuss how the regulations affected dishwashers, and in turn, how they affected suburban women.
"Go buy a dishwasher,” Trump said. “I said what's wrong with this thing? It doesn't clean the dishes right. The women come up to me, the women who they say don't like me -- they actually do like me a lot.”
"Suburban women, please vote for me,” Trump continued. “I'm saving your house. I'm saving your community. I'm keeping your crime way down."
The appeal is the latest in a series of explicit and reductive pitches urging suburban women to support his reelection, revealing a misunderstanding of the makeup of suburban women as predominantly White housewives.
On Saturday, Trump asked rhetorically of supporters in Muskegon, Michigan, “Would you like a nice low-income housing project next to your suburban beautiful ranch style house? Generally speaking, no.”
“I saved your suburbs, women,” Trump continued. “Suburban women, you’re supposed to love Trump.”
