(NEWSER)– Burka-wearers of the world apparently have nothing to fear from a Donald Trump presidency. At a rally before a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Monday, Trump told supporters that "freeing" Muslim women from the burka isn't a good reason to intervene in the Middle East, Mashable reports.

"I saw a woman interviewed. They said, 'We want to wear them, we've worn them for a thousand years. Why would anybody tell us not [to]?' They want to!" he said, per CNN. "What the hell are we getting involved for?"

"Fact is, it's easy. You don't have to put on makeup, look how beautiful everyone looks," Trump told the audience, joking that he would wear one himself if he were a woman.
