Trump defended himself as commenting on Fiorina's "persona" after several top presidential candidates blasted him for mocking Fiorina's "face" in a magazine story this week.

"The main thing really that really, honestly, voters are thinking about are the 54 million women of working age who are not in the workforce today because there are not jobs for them," Bachmann continued on CNN.

"What women want is a sense of security. They want to know that somebody in their family has a good job and that somebody is bringing food home and that you can have a good life," she added.

A 2012 candidate for president, Bachmann won the Iowa Straw poll but finished sixth in the state’s first-in-the-nation caucus.
