Thanks to his inept presidency, Donald Trump can take backhanded credit for more women legislators in the U.S. House

And he can certainly take full credit for the decline of GOP women in the U.S. House of Representatives.  

Of the 102 women who currently serve in the U.S. House, 87% are Democrats.  The number of GOP women in the House declined by nearly half after the 2018 midterm elections.
