Trump chides lack of due process in sexual misconduct cases as 2 aides forced to resign

Trump's speech-writer David Sorensen becomes second White House aide to quit over abuse claims

Saturday's tweet follows spousal abuse allegations against two Trump aides that roiled the White House over the past week. Some are old and some are new.

President Donald Trump is bemoaning what he believes is a lack of due process for "someone falsely accused".

President Trump threw fuel on the fire of controversy over the former aide who resigned last week over domestic abuse charges.

Sorensen provided photos to the Washington Post that showed injuries he said she inflicted upon him during their fights, including bruises and scrapes.

On Saturday morning, Donald Trump weighed in, via Twitter, on the recent slew of allegations that have rocked the White House, reportedly ushering in a return to the chaos of his first few months in office. A third woman, who said she had dated Porter in 2016, reached out to the two exes saying she, too, had been abused emotionally and physically by Porter. And when they write books that are fairly recently released, and they say wonderful things about him. In 1989, Trump placed full-page ads in NY newspapers calling for the execution of black and Latino teenagers accused of assaulting and raping a white woman in Central Park. Both men left their posts despite denying the allegations of physical and emotional abuse from ex-wives.

"Muggers and murderers should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes", Trump wrote in the ad at the time.

"It should be able to focus on continuing President Trump's historic accomplishments for the American People", he said in the text message, the paper reported. "And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same". Trump also repeatedly questioned the validity of former President Barack Obama's birth certificate, despite no credible evidence to dispute the fact Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.

Trump later retracted his false statement during his bid to become president.

"He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent so you have to talk to him about that, but we absolutely wish him well, he did a very good job when he was at the White House", he said.

"I do agree with @POTUS on one thing he said today, #domesticviolence does destroy lives, literally", she added. The Department of Justice flatly denied the claim.

McEnany went ahead and just directly invoked Matt Lauer to tell the MSNBC anchor that Trump's remarks were similar to ones made by her own colleagues when the allegations about Lauer came out.

"The societal belief system supports the idea that women are vindictive, spiteful, and lie for advantage in custody and other matters", she said. Meanwhile, former Trump administration official Flynn pleaded guilty last December to misleading the Federal Bureau of Investigation about talks he had with Russian officials. "Flynn lied and they've destroyed his life".

Former head of the FBI James Comey, who Trump eventually fired, told Congress in a July 2017 testimony there was "no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI".

Trump has previously defended or sympathized with other men who were accused of abuse, including conservative media titan Roger Ailes and Fox News host Bill O'Reilly.

"Can we call that treason?" Mr. Trump endorsed Mr. Moore, who lost the campaign to the Democrat, Doug Jones.

"It's very sad because he's a very good person".

The sympathetic response made no mention of accusers or victims of sexual harassment or abuse, or the professional or personal harm that can come to those - usually women - who come forward. US law states that whoever "owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason".

"I'm building a wall".
