Trump dress code sparks outrage from women

This week, a source told online publication Axios that President Trump is obsessed with his employees' appearances. He apparently has set rules and requirements for those who are front facing. The "source" said that Trump wants "women to dress like women," and that women have felt pressured to wear dresses in his presence.

That's not all; apparently the president also scrutinizes men's appearances. Supposedly, if you're seen in public with Trump, "you need to have a certain look." That means that employees need to dress "sharp."

The rumors, especially about women's dress code, have caused outrage on social media. A new hashtag, #dresslikeawoman, emerged as Twitter users spoke against Trump's alleged preference for dresses. They assert that there is no one way to "dress like a woman," and a woman does not need to be dressed femininely.
