Trump and women

An article in Sunday’s New York Times – a critical investigation into Donald Trump’s personal and professional relationships with various women – has sparked outrage among some of his supporters.

Rowanne Brewer Lane, a model quoted in the piece, believes her story of borderline sexual harassment was taken out of context. On Fox and Friends, she explained that she “did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump.”

However, some media outlets have defended the Times’ article. Erik Wemple of the Washington Post criticized Fox News’ reaction to Lane’s comments.

Last fall, Fox Host Megyn Kelly challenged Trump on his history of alleged sexist rhetoric during one of the network’s Republican primary debates. Later, Trump and Fox feuded over possibly inappropriate claims the former had made about Kelly, with Trump deciding to boycott a separate Fox debate soon after.

For the piece, Times reporters claim they conducted more than 50 interviews over a six week period.
