At least that’s what Trump told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday. After saying he’d allow women to fight in elite groups like the U.S. Army Rangers, since “they’re really into it” and “some of them are really, really good” (of course he’d speak to generals first, to get their opinions “without a political bent”), he declared that the undefeated UFC champ is in his corner – which is a good thing, especially if you wanna take on ISIS.
“I tell you what,” Trump said. “I know some women that are just…Ronda Rousey is an example, who likes me! I’d take her on my side as a fighter.”
The problem is, while her personal feelings about Trump are still unclear, Rousey let it be known last month that she definitely doesn’t support his quest to become Commander in Chief, as she explained to CNN after inexplicably being asked about the “MMA feel” of Trump’s presidential campaign.
“I wouldn’t vote for him,” Rousey said. “I just really wouldn’t trust that guy with running my country, that’s all. I’m not going to get into specifics of it, but I don’t want a reality TV star to be running my country.”
Trump has yet to clarify his statement on Twitter, though perhaps that’s a good move: This is Ronda Rousey we’re talking about; she’s been known to make quick work of those who dare utter her name.
