Trumpettes USA is getting more and more women to climb aboard the "Trump Train!"

Democrats and their friends in the anti-Trump media want you to believe that Donald Trump has a "female problem" with the electorate.

You wouldn’t know that judging from the capacity crowd assembled last week in Boca Raton, Florida — a key battleground state — to hear and cheer Toni Holt Kramer, the president and founder of Trumpettes USA.

At a sold-out dinner sponsored by the Republican Federated Women of South Florida, professional women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds turned out to hear and cheer the leader of the now-international Trumpettes USA organization dedicated to the reelection of Donald Trump.

Trumpettes USA is a worldwide pro-Trump women’s group founded on September 19, 2015 by former Hollywood television hostess and entertainment reporter Toni Holt Kramer.

She divides her time between estates in Palm Beach, Florida, and Bel Air and Palm Springs, California, and is a member of Trump's Mara-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

Kramer has been friends with some of the nation’s greatest entertainers including Richard Burton, Phyllis Diller, Bob Hope, Rock Hudson, Dean Martin, Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra, and countless others.

An early admirer of Donald Trump, she and her husband Bobby were on a Mediterranean cruise with friends when they heard that Trump had announced his candidacy for the presidency.

After a few months of discussion, Toni and three of her close friends--Terry Ebert Mendozza, Janet Levy, and Suzi Goldsmith — decided to form a pro-Trump women’s group to bring awareness of Trump’s campaign and help him get elected — "The Trumpettes USA."

They call themselves "The Founding Four."

Until Trump, Kramer had not been active in partisan politics although she has known many political heavy weights. She and Bobby attended an event on the last night Bill and Hillary Clinton occupied the White House and ran into President-elect George W. Bush at another event later that same evening.

As she recounted, within minutes she had shaken hands with the "outgoing and incoming presidents." The next day they attended the Inauguration of George W. Bush.

Kramer eventually became friends with Hillary Clinton, whom she supported in 2008, who advised her to write a book on her life — which she eventually did: "Unstoppable Me —Toni Holt Kramer: My Life in the Spotlight," published in 2018.

She also interacted with current U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who angered her when she "betrayed" Hillary Clinton and supported Barack Obama in 2008.

The Clinton friendship slowly soured when Kramer became convinced that Clinton’s drive to become president had less do with "serving the American people and more about Hillary."

Trumpettes USA’s mission is not only to have Trump supporters get to know and understand him, but also educate "those women — and men — who might not want to vote for him."

After their campaign to get Trump elected was successful, Kramer went full steam ahead working for his reelection. She says that the organization has expanded to include tens of thousands of members around the world.

An example of her efforts appeared in a January 2018 article in Town&Country.

It detailed how Kramer organized a party at Mar-a-Lago, hosted by Eric and Laura Trump, honoring Trump’s inauguration. It was held just two days before the 2018 Women’s March and the federal government shutdown.

Kramer calls Trump "the greatest person on the planet."

With her firm handshake and electrifying personality, she is a bundle of energy, enthusiasm, and positive thinking. Her efforts have been featured in media around the world.

As she told the group in Boca Raton, she has been featured in articles in Town & Country Magazine, Paris Match, and The French Report. She has done interviews with German, Japanese and Austrian and British media, including "Good Morning Britain."

In the United States, she has appeared on both ABC’s "Nightline" and "The Daily Show," and was recently interviewed for a future NBC news segment.

On Super Bowl eve, Feb. 1, Kramer will host the Trumpettes’ "Third Annual Red, White and Blue Gala" celebrating Trump at Mar-a-Lago. Headlining the event will be comedian Rosanne Barr and many other prominent guests and Trump supporters including "God Bless the USA" artist Lee Greenwood.

Kramer’s efforts with the Trumpettes destroys the media and elitist liberal myth that the only women who support Trump are uneducated deplorables.
