Trump Says He Sees Complications in Equal Pay for Women

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tells CNN he supports equal pay for women conceptually but doesn’t “want it to be a negative where everybody ends up making the same pay, because that’s not our system.”

  • “One of the problems you have is you get to have an economy where it’s no longer a free-enterprise economy,” Trump says
  • Defends record of hiring women, says he pays them the same as or more than his male employees
  • Says he would review “good aspects” of Planned Parenthood when considering defunding, and no taxpayer money should be used for abortions
  • Says he supports “three exceptions” allowing abortion, incl. when the mother’s life is at risk
