    How would anyone know the percentages unless they accompanied every female?

    Fake News.

    Trump said 1 in 3. The resistance warriors at CBS fact-checked it with Amnesty international and found it to be 60-80%

    Perhaps they are referring to this: WHO: 1 in 3 women experience physical or sexual violence

    There's a few problems with the right's new found love of women and sexual violence Trump notwithstanding.

    1. They supported Brett Kavanaugh
    2. I fail to see how the wall will prevent violence against women
    3. Women who are coming here were already fleeing violence at home.

    Can you link to the actual AI report? I cannot seem to find it except for the right wing twitter trolls reporting it.

    Has CBS issued a denial of this "fact check?" I can't seem to find one, but the "claim" is popping up more and more.

    I also checked the CBS Oval Office speech "fact check" list, and they don't mention any revision. Could it be they are embarrassed by it and don't want to acknowledge it one way or the other?

    Well I fond many citations like the Huffington Post report below when I searched "Amnesty International reports 60 to 80% of women sexually assaulted"

    80% Of Central American Women, Girls Are Raped Crossing Into The U.S.
    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/...n_5806972.html

    But the links to every citation to Amnesty Internation lead to this: https://www.amnesty.org/en/library/a...142010eng.pdf/

    I guess they were embarrassed by their report.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    It is more logical to find that were assaulted by people during the time that they travel through Mexico. Because only a few travel in a caravan of people and they do that to prevent being raped. If they were being raped during the caravan they would not choose to travel in that way. They do it because it is safer than traveling alone or in small groups.

    Can you find the AI report cited in your "fact check"? Redstate only links to right wing twitter trolls and a Trump speech. Hardly the harbinger of facts.

    It says the link isn't found.

    I did find this link from 5 1/2 years ago which talks about what is "believed" by AI. I don't see any hard facts or anything else.

    If you just invent **** all the time, telling an average of 6 to 10 lies a day, every day you are in office, then every once in a while you are bound to invent some statistic that actually ends up being sort of true. Even pathological liars like Trump manage to stumble on the truth every once in a while.

    I noticed though that you don't have any threads about the thousands of times fact checkers have caught him in lies though. Surely that is just an oversight on your part.

    Even if the wall were built, which it won't for a variety of reasons even if he did get his money for it, would only increase the likelihood of more women being raped as they would then be even more dependent on human traffickers to get them here.
