Today is International Women's Day, a celebration of social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women, past and present, throughout the world. This year, it coincides with "A Day Without a Woman."
The national strike movement aims to draw attention to inequities working women face compared to men, and is being seen by many as an attack on President Donald Trump's views on women.
Several school districts across the country are closing to allow staff and teachers the chance to participate, and many other women from across the workforce are expected to participate.
So you can imagine how angry social media users were when Donald Trump came out with this tweet...
I have tremendous respect for women and the many roles they serve that are vital to the fabric of our society and our economy.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 8, 2017
Of course, there are dozens if not hundreds of quotes from Donald Trump that directly contradict his statement that he has "tremendous respect for women," and Twitter users were all too eager to remind him of them.
