Senior White House Staff Members Resign Following Sexual Abuse Allegations

SAUL LOEB Trump Defends Accused Domestic Abusers: 'No Recovery for Someone Falsely Accused'

"Some are true and some are false", he wrote. Some are old some are new.

"There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone", he continued.

Last week, two men in the White House were felled by domestic violence allegations.

His exit comes after White House aide Rob Porter resigned following allegations of domestic abuse from two ex-wives.

Hicks is one of the President's longest-serving White House confidantes, lasting through numerous campaign and White House shakeups.

Over the past two years, more than a dozen women have accused Trump of making unwanted sexual advances against them.

Willoughby said that society as a whole doesnt' recognize the reality of abuse and that denying it was easier than accepting the devastation that is the truth.

In January, The Wall Street Journal reported that his lawyer paid hush money to a former porn star prior to the election to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. Wynn denies any harassment or abuse. After Ailes was ousted as chief executive of Fox News in 2016, Trump also questioned the motives of some of Ailes' accusers.

Willoughby, who was married to Porter from 2009 to 2013, argued in her piece that Trump's reaction synced with a larger pattern related to abuse allegations made by women toward powerful men. Holderness said that Porter punched her in 2005 and provided photos showing a black eye she said she had sustained during the incident.

"We don't tolerate it at all", Mulvaney said Sunday, amid criticism that President Trump didn't clearly say his administration has no tolerance for such behavior. Found out about it recently, and I was surprised by it. ... Look what he's done. "But we absolutely wish him well". It's obviously a tough time for him.

Trump also offered a measure of support for Porter by saying he had a "great career ahead of him". You can talk about somebody's competence and work product and the person you worked with and knew, and that's what the president did Friday in his statement.

"I do think if you put on a political hat, that is a big problem, certainly how we are viewed as Republicans in the next election", Flake added. "He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent", Trump said.

At the end of January, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refuted a report from Vanity Fair that suggested Trump thought Kelly was a "nut job" and had tasked his daughter Ivanka Trump with finding a replacement for him.

Despite Trump's endorsement, Moore lost the special election to fill the Senate seat to Democratic candidate Doug Jones.

Then Stephanopoulos wondered if Kelly was denying that he knew the allegations for months.

However, Trump has been more comfortable making allegations about others.

"The President has shown through words and actions that he doesn't value women".

The allegations of domestic abuse against Porter first came to light last Tuesday.
