Denmarks government will give 315 million kroner (42 million) to support women in conflict and war zones, with US president Donald Trump having withdrawn American support in the area.
Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen confirmed to broadcaster DR that the government would pledge more money to women at risk of rape, human trafficking and being married against their will. Funds are particularly needed in those areas in the current political climate, Rasmussen said.
We have a president sitting in the White House who has withdrawn from all international collaboration related to family planning, the PM told DR.
Earlier this year, Trump implemented the controversial global gag rule, cutting US financial support for international organizations that provide information about abortion. Rasmussen said that his government would pledge 315 million kroner to help make up for this shortfall. This is a clear signal to America. If somebody drops the torch, others must pick it up. The world needs leadership, Rasmussen said.
Prior to the UN General Assembly, Rasmussen called for mutual solutions to be found to international problems. We are facing a long list of problems which can only be solved by a global community. Security, climate change, poverty, and migration are cross-border challenges that we cannot solve individually. Common problems require mutual solutions, he wrote in a statement.

No lady. “We” have a President that’s done that. You are not WE.
Nothing I like better than a good cup of coffee and a cherry Danish.
Dec. 10, 2013;
President Obama took a selfie at Nelson Mandella’s Memorial service today. He was joined by David Cameron of Great Britain and Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minster of Denmark.
At one point, Michelle Obama, the American President’s wife decided to change her seating arrangement, and plopped herself directly between Pres. Obama and Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt. The first lady’s did not explain why she chose to change her seating in the middle of the ceremony.
These problems have been going on for decades and suddenly it’s Trump’s fault? Where are the abortion clinics in Iraq or Afghanistan he talks about? I’ve only heard those things pushed on the West.
That money should buy a lot of supplies for the SDF’s women’s brigades.
Some of the biggest wankers I’ve known in life, have been guys who always made a big deal out of defending or supporting women.
Real decent men just do it.
The idea of defending them and supporting them is a laudable goal. It should be adopted into our lives.
I’m addressing the guys we all know as buffoons, or even users of women.
You know the type of guy all the guys know is a massive jerk. They feel sorry for any woman that gets stuck with one of them.
These are frequently the guys that made a big deal out of their support for women. Most of the guys know, it’s a put-on.
Women spot other women who are train wrecks easily.
Men spot other men who are train wrecks easily.
Man have a lot harder time spotting women who are train wrecks.
Women have a lot harder time spotting men who are.
I wouldn’t trust this P.M. any farther than I could drop kick him.
What has Trump done wrong to/for women since being elected.
The P.M. must not have been laid in seven or eight years.
’This is a clear signal to America. If somebody drops the torch, others must pick it up. The world needs leadership,’ Rasmussen said.”
Fine. We’ll take care of the things that are in THE BEST INTERESTS OF AMERICA - the rest of you loons can throw away your cash as you see fit.
And it’s about d@mn time!!
Oh, I thought marginalized women were those who were gender confused. Geez, can’t keep up with the latest terms and constantly changing definitions.
Lead on oh ye great Danes!
Abort those babies America is unwilling to abort
We’ll just focus on killing ISIS
Which helps women
The Danes are as lousy as the rest of the proggies. They’ve got plenty to worry about with their own women and their muzzie infestation. Wankers is right.
How come they didn’t go with the Euro, btw? Danish pride thingy?
