Despite desperate attempts by the corporate media to disrupt his support ,RNC Committeewoman Kathy Berden says she's still 100% Trump. 

It was announced today that Berden will help lead the newly announced "Michigan Women For Trump" leadership team.

“It's an honor to work with such amazing and talented women across the Great Lakes State in support of Mr. Trump," Berden said in a press release. 

" As a proud mother, grandmother, wife, and small business owner, I will be voting for Donald Trump on November 8th because he is the change agent and problem-solver our country desperately needs.

Whether its jobs, the economy, public safety, education, child care, or national security, women around Michigan and the entire country know that Donald Trump is the only candidate who is with us on the issues that matter.  With Donald Trump as President, women will have a champion in the White House who relentlessly fights for our families every day," Berden added.
