Sarah Sanders Dismisses Trump Sexual Misconduct Accusers: ‘Allegations Have Been Answered’
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used a good portion of today’s White House Press Briefing to defend President Trump from the renewed intrigue surrounding his history of sexual transgressions.
As sexual misconduct scandals continue to shake up the country, three of Trump’s accusers spoke out today and offered multiple accounts of the president’s alleged, inappropriate behavior throughout the years. Sanders reacted to questions about this by saying that the alleged sexual assault and harassment “took place long before [Trump] was president,” and America decided on the issue by electing him into office.
“The president has addressed these accusations directly and denied all of these allegations,” Sanders said. “This took place long before he was elected to be president, and the people of this country had a decisive election, supported President Trump, and we feel that these allegations have been answered through that process.”
Sanders continued to face questions on this matter, one of which was whether Trump agrees with Nikki Haley‘s recent remarks about how women reporting sexual abuse ought to be heard out. When Sanders was asked to say whether the accusations against Trump are false, Sanders refused to respond.
