Aug 24, 2020 – After four years of blatant misogyny, civil unrest, and failed leadership from President Trump, today The Lincoln Project continues our crusade to abolish his chances of reelection by announcing the first wave of fierce women to lead our Lincoln Women coalition. This coalition is comprised of current and former Republican women who have had enough of this president and will actively encourage other Republican women to vote him out of office on November 3.
“President Trump’s weakness and incompetence have caused immeasurable damage to our country. His failure at managing the pandemic response has cost over 175,000 lives. His failure to preserve the economy has inordinately hurt women and cost millions of jobs. His assaults against women, immigrants, and minorities demean the Presidency and the American people.” said Jennifer Horn, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “Women will decide the outcome of this election. The coalition is dedicated to uniting all women who recognize the threat this President poses to the future of our Republic and turning them out to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The future of our families, our communities, and our country lie in our hands.”

“The past four years have been exhausting for women,” said Susan Del Percio. “We are fearful for the health and safety of our families, we are tired of constant lies and bullying from the Oval Office, and we are frustrated with trying to make decisions for the wellbeing of our families without accurate information. It is time to bring humanity, empathy, leadership, dignity, and respect back to the White House and I am proud to join this group of strong women in that fight.”
