Trump did not mention the women or address the substance of their claims in those remarks or in a tweet Saturday that decried how "lives are bring shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation".
His apparent defence of his two aides, Rob Porter, the staff secretary, and David Sorensen, a speechwriter, ran counter to the White House's portrayal of its response to the accusations of emotional and physical abuse leveled against them.
Porter's resignation was announced Wednesday, just hours after a photograph was published of Holderness with a black eye, allegedly inflicted by Porter.
Donald Trump totally ignored the desperate cries of multiple women who came forward to make allegations about #Roy Moore's alleged sexual misconduct.
"We immediately confronted the staffer, he denied the allegation and he resigned today", Shah said in a statement.
"He rails against the injustice of these "accusations" (this from a man who accused President Obama of being a foreigner)". Then he issued a second statement speaking out against domestic abuse in general without specifically condemning Porter himself. The president added that it is a "tough time" for Porter. Strangers complimented him to me every time we went out. The threats were personal. "I also, but I also agree that it doesn't, it doesn't taint the work, I believe, that Bob Mueller is doing on the other piece of the investigation".
"I got my temporary at the end of December", said Priebus. I'm trying to keep business out of Mexico.
In an interview on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360", Willoughby said she's often asked why she stayed in a relationship with Porter if he was a "monster". "He is an intelligent, kind, chivalrous, caring, professional man. I don't think those things are mutually exclusive".
"That dynamic leaves many simply unwilling to consider the possibility that he has engaged in acts of violence, and when people aren't willing to imagine that, the easiest thing to do is disbelieve the woman making these allegations", Martin said. It was no secret that his history of abuse was well known and both ex-wives had reported the abuse to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Trump had also stressed to reporters that Porter denies the allegations from his two former wives that he was physically and emotionally abusive. "That is democracy", Rather wrote in a Facebook post.
Sorensen has denied the allegations.
"Why would someone like me and many other women be there", at the White House if the president didn't show support for women? Such long-standing social biases play into victims' reluctance to share their stories.
The #MeToo hashtag also went viral previous year as more and more women shared their harassment experiences online. That has added to Trump's frustrations about the chief of staff's attempts to control him and Kelly's recent inflammatory comments about immigrants, according to two people who speak to the president regularly but are not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations.
The White House has been criticised for its handling of the allegations and Mr Trump's comments quickly drew scorn.
As staff secretary, Porter's responsibility was mainly in the flow of paper that crossed Trump's desk, including the wave of executive orders and actions that Trump inked during the first months of his tenure.
