A CNN poll released last week showed that 73 percent of registered female voters in the United States have an unfavorable view of Trump. And a Reuters poll recently found that more than half of American women hold a "very unfavorable" view of the front-runner.

Trump came under fire Tuesday for defending his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was charged with battery for allegedly grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields earlier this month at an event. The Jupiter, Fla., police department said Lewandowski "intentionally" touched Fields.

Trump responded by saying he doesn't "discard people" and called Lewandowski a "good person with a wonderful family," while casting doubt on Fields's story and questioning a picture she said shows bruises Lewandowski left on her arm.

Trump then shared a tweet with a photo of Heidi next to Melania, with the statement, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

Trump has faced accusations of sexism from his opponents since the early days of his campaign. An anti-Trump super-PAC produced an ad earlier this month slamming Trump for his past comments about women.

In an interview earlier this week, Trump defended his comments, saying he never thought he would run for office.

"The rules aren't different, but certainly I never thought I would run for office," Trump said in an interview with Radio host Charlie Sykes after he asked the front-runner whether the rules are different for celebrities when it comes to insulting women.
