- Trump has openly criticized Nikki Haley and Nancy Pelosi for their appearances, according to a forthcoming book.
- He said Haley, his former ambassador to the UN, had a “complexion problem”.
- And he said Pelosi is “an example of why women should be careful about plastic surgery,” according to the book.
Former President Donald Trump has been outspoken about the appearance of female politicians, according to a forthcoming book written by two journalists.
Trump, for example, mocked former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, according to a report from the New York Times written by Peter Baker, one of the two authors of “The Divider”, which is slated for release later this week.
He told visitors that “speaker Nancy Pelosi was an example of why women should be careful about plastic surgery,” Baker writes.
And he said he “wouldn’t choose Nikki Haley, his ambassador to the United Nations, as his running mate because she had a ‘complexion problem'”.
Trump has a long history of harsh criticism of women.
In 2020, for example, Trump shared a series of posts aimed at insulting and sexist jabs at Hillary Clinton and the Georgia Democrat. Stacey Abrams. He retweeted a post calling Clinton a “skank,” as reported by Insider’s Tom Porter.

And during the campaign against Joe Biden, Trump attacked Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate.
Trump said the United States could never see a “socialist” president — “especially a female socialist,” he said, apparently referring to Harris, who is not a socialist.
“We’re not supposed to have a socialist – look, we’re not going to be a socialist nation. We’re not going to have a socialist president, especially a female socialist president, we’re not going to have that, we’ I’m not going to put up with it,” Trump said.
Trump also called adult film star Stormy Daniels a ‘horse’ and called one of his former White House aides ‘that dog’, according to a compilation of insults Trump hurled at reunited women by John Walsh of Insider.
During his bid for president in 2016, Trump lashed out at his Republican opponents, including Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard.
“Look at that face,” he said in an interview with rolling stone, referring to Fiorina. “Would anyone vote for that?”
