Transcript for Melania and Ivanka Trump praise Saudi Arabia for empowering women
I'm not on top bond praised Saudi Arabia for their efforts to empower women. But this is a time change where women need to be accompanied by a man in public forests and news separate entrances to some businesses. That the only country in the world and doesn't let women dry. So list of people have been some questions about the idea of empowerment and what you know our top I was. Have to listen some of the things they do there I agree with for instance. There bans from reading fashion magazines good inches decisions pollute your mind anyway. Cannot opt out there bought for mention is entering a cemetery even if they hope to have that would confused and. Yes OK yeah. Also I looked up in 1974. A woman in this country could not get a credit card without her husband's permission 1970. Yeah. Really asked asked what we get the ball in the hole conscious of until 68 so that's not shocked but does not that long ago outlined you not know not need it was yeah yeah. Yeah I am so you know that we can yell at them and make fun of them but meanwhile we're Arab and all the men that we've seen in Trump's cap mid and all those pictures of all those men however that much different well you know perhaps not as on it Ed that's true I didn't. Societies different though I mean I think it was a little tone deaf for them to save their you know it's about the empowerment of women because each of the women that they met with they met with fifteen business leaders. Each of them had a chaperone I think they're called. Guardian aren't. It's a women in Saudi Arabia aren't allowed outside without a male guardian.

Yes that's true we face challenges here. But we can women can swim women can drive there's no parallel that should be made between the United States and out yeah. And allowed to collect bothered me because if you're gonna be First Lady aura bako who often appears like she's taking a First Lady role.

After way to get he was also in that in the Middle East he came back and they said sorry you're out so dying. But this little trip is giving you pass this still investigating him Dowling a half.
