Campos-Duffy: 'Very Clear' That Anti-Semitism Accusations Affected Women's March Turnout
Many politicians, celebrities and civic groups distanced themselves from the January 19 march amid the controversy, which picked up after co-President Tamika Mallory declined to condemn anti-Semitic statements by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
The organization's flagship march in Washington, D.C., drew thousands, an amount far fewer than the hundreds of thousands who participated after President Trump's inauguration.
Campos-Duffy, who spoke with participants of this year's march in D.C., said on Fox & Friends that the feeling was not as enthusiastic as years prior.
Numerous women told Campos-Duffy that they were marching to advocate for women's rights.
"I'm at the march because I love women and I support equal women rights, and yeah, I do hate Donald Trump," one participant said.
One Jewish woman told Campos-Duffy that the anti-Semitic statements Farrakhan has made are only "one part" of who he is.
"That's not the whole part of who that person is, and again, we as women have to stick together," she said.
Others said that they opposed Farrakhan's rhetoric, but were at the event to march for women's rights.
Campos-Duffy also said Sunday that she saw a divide at the march, and that President Trump created a "wedge issue" with his offer to Democrats to fund a border wall.
