White House Says Trump Supports Abuse Victims

Adjust Comment Print

Reports indicate that President Trump is annoyed with the actions of White House Chief of Staff for mishandling the fallout from abuse allegations against Staff Secretary Rob Porter.

The former aide to President George W. Bush questioned on Friday why women like communications director Hope Hicks and other women in the White House don't walk out in protest due to Trump's behavior toward women during an MSNBC segment.

"People's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation".

"The words "mere allegation" and "falsely accused" [are] meant to imply that I am a liar", she said in the essay. There's no tolerance in this white house, no place in America for domestic abuse.

Aides' attempts to explain the defensive response from Trump and Kelly only raised more questions.

Conway also noted Gillibrand has said, in retrospect, Clinton should have resigned from the presidency over his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.

"He literally dictated that statement to me", she said.

Porter has denied the accusations against him, as well.

And as each administration ends up resembling its leader, it was not surprising that the wave of feminist vindication would also reach the White House.

And White House legislative director Marc Short denied that Mr Trump personally waived Mr Porter's interim security clearance to allow him to handle highly classified documents.

The president's comments set off a firestorm at a time of national conversation about the mistreatment of women and they came amid rampant White House finger-pointing about who knew what, and when, about the severity of the spousal abuse allegations. Porter's first wife, Holderness, said Porter kicked her and posted an image of her with a black eye, which she says she received from Porter punching her.

Over the last few days, two White House staffers have stepped down under a cloud of suspicion involving claims of domestic abuse. It is obviously a very tough time for him.

CBS News has learned Porter informed Kelly back in November about the accusations from his ex-wives. He said strongly yesterday that he is innocent, but you will have to talk to him about that'. He said on Fox News Sunday that Trump and Kelly had a "very human reaction" to the allegations against Porter.

In news that is unlikely to surprise anyone, Donald Trump has attacked the #MeToo movement for shattering people's lives without due cause.
