“For the Republican women who have spent the past few years working to broaden the appeal of the Grand Old Party, Donald Trump arrived on the scene like a wrecking ball, tearing down the foundations they had laid over the past few years to try to create a more diverse and open party.
With his penchant for bluster and disdain for political correctness, there are few slices of the American electorate the billionaire businessman has yet to offend.
