During an interview on CNN, Cuomo brought up Trump's tweet on the marches, in which he acknowledged the protesters and suggested women had reason to celebrate economic gains during his administration. 

"The Women's March — the one where the president was tweeting that all the people are out there marching to say how great he's done," Cuomo said during the interview on CNN.

"No, no, no, how great the economy is. We have the lowest unemployment rate for women in 17 years," Conway said.

Cuomo shot back: "You know that's not why they were marching. Isn't that insulting to all those women out there who are looking for leadership and looking for someone to get behind them. And, instead, he makes a joke out of the march."

Conway responded that the women's unemployment rate was "no joke."

Cuomo noted that women don't get equal pay, adding that the administration is in a position to do something about it.

"And instead he's tweeting, a little tongue in cheek about it, why?" Cuomo said.

The interview came after people across the country turned out this past weekend for marches marking the one-year anniversary of Trump's inauguration and the original Women's March the day after.

The demonstrations were generally framed as protests against Trump and his policies. They also focused on encouraging women to get more involved in politics in 2018.

Trump on Saturday in a tweet acknowledged the protesters and touted economic success for women under his administration.

"Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March," Trump tweeted on Saturday.

"Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!"
