Three of Donald Trump’s most steadfast female supporters have launched a super political action committee with the goal of raising $30 million and repairing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s mostly negative image among women.
Hollywood actress Stacey Dash, veteran GOP strategist Ann Stone and YouTube stars Diamond and Silk unveiled the Women Vote Trump PAC during a press conference Thursday in Washington.
“There are millions of women who support Donald Trump and we’re not standing in the shadows anymore,” they said in a statement. “We won’t be pushed around by bullies who tell us who we are ‘supposed’ to like. And we’re not going to keep quiet just because the Washington, D.C., power elites want us to.”
A three-minute video posted to the group’s website makes an appeal to “security moms,” or women who tend to gravitate towards candidates who talk tough and promise to ensure American families remain safe.

“That’s why women vote — to protect their home and family,” the video states, adding that women “certainly don’t want a candidate just because she has our same body parts.”
“We know he’s not perfect. But he’s genuine, and that’s a breath of fresh air,” the video says of Trump.
Trump has repeatedly disavowed super PACs and special interest groups seeking to raise money to benefit him in the general election. He has, however, begun meeting with deep-pocketed GOP donors across the country as the Republican National Committee looks to raise $1 billion ahead of the November election.
