A top surrogate for President Trump, who holds a senior campaign position in Iowa, said Wednesday night that the president has done more for women than anyone else she could think of besides Mother Teresa.

"There's not a person alive that literally has done so much for a female, for the female population," said Tana Goertz, Trump Team Coordinator in Iowa. "I can't think of one person that I could go, except for Mother Teresa. I mean, literally, who has done more for women in office than Donald Trump?"

Goertz's comments to reporters came when she was asked by CBS News what her message would be to women who may have voted for Mr. Trump in 2016 and for Democratic Congresswoman Cindy Axne in 2018. Axne, a freshman congresswoman from Iowa's 3rd District, won partly due to support from suburban women. Goertz said it wasn't completely fair to compare the two races.

Goertz, who also serves as an advisory board member for the Women for Trump Coalition, worked on the 2016 Trump campaign and was a contestant on season three of "The Apprentice." She helped lead a Women for Trump event in West Des Moines that was aimed at training female volunteers as organizers. Thirteen similar events were held in 12 other states.
