President Donald Trump says lives are being “destroyed by mere allegation” after two White House aides quit amid accusations of domestic abuse.
“There is no recovery for someone falsely accused,” Mr Trump tweeted.
This week saw the departure of White House speechwriter David Sorensen and staff secretary Rob Porter…
“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”
Among those to react with anger was Democratic Senator Patty Murray, who responded by saying that women’s lives were affected every day by sexual violence and harassment.
“I’m going to keep standing with them, and trusting them, even if the president won’t,” she said.
So Trump is saying some allegations are true, some false, while a female Democratic Senator is saying ALL allegations (of men abusing women) should be assumed to be true, and all the men in question assumed guilty. Trump’s point about due process is perfectly reasonable.
