Whoopi Goldberg lectured Donald Trump on his views on Planned Parenthood, insisting, “I swear to you, Donald, you’re misinformed here.”
On “The View” on Thursday, Goldberg told Trump “to get a little bit more informed on what’s going on in women’s issues.” (RELATED: Trump Calls Planned Parenthood An ‘Abortion Factory,’ But Stops Short Of Calling For Full Defund)
Joy Behar also criticized Trump, claiming, “I think since you have shown to have a big heart for the Syrians, you might want to extend that to women in this country.”
Michelle Collins: What do you want to say to women? What’s your message?
Donald Trump: I want to say that I cherish women, and I will protect women, and I will take care of women, and I have great respect for women.
Joy Behar: So you’re not against defunding Planned Parenthood. Am I hearing that?
Trump: I am against abortion.
Behar: Wait a second.
Trump: That is, Joy, that is a tremendous amount of the work they do.
Multiple View Hosts: No, no, it’s not.
Whoopi Goldberg: Donald, the thing that we want you to do as we go into the rest of this run, is you got to get a little bit more informed on what’s going on in women’s issues. It’s just, and I don’t say this with disrespect at all. I’m not saying this disrespectfully.
Trump: I understand that, but I do think I am very well informed.
Goldberg: No, baby, I swear to you, I swear to you, Donald, you’re misinformed here.
Behar: Let me tell him what it is. Planned Parenthood does abortions for 3 percent of the people who come to them. The rest is women’s health. And that 3 percent is not federally funded. So nobody’s tax money is being used for abortions. And yet, if you defund Planned Parenthood, millions of women will not get health care. I think since you have shown to have a big heart for the Syrians, you might want to extend that to women in this country.
Trump: Well, you know you, Joy, I tell you what, you said 3 percent. But as you know the numbers are 55 percent and 60 percent and 65 percent of the money.
Whoopi: When you come here it will be so much easier, because we have to go.
