Her remarks follow President Trump who this Saturday had tweeted that people’s lives are “being shattered and destroyed” by a “mere allegation” after two White House aides resigned following accusations of past domestic abuse.
“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,” Trump penned.
“There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”
White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down this past Wednesday after his two ex-wives stepped forward with allegations that he had abused them physically and emotionally during their marriages.
The Washington Post confirmed this Friday that White House speechwriter David Sorensen had also stepped down after his former wife said he was violent and emotionally abusive during their marriage. Sorensen vehemently denied the allegations, claiming that he was the abuse victim.
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod who fought back against Trump’s comments on Saturday, by declaring people’s lives are “being shattered and destroyed by domestic abuse and violence” and questioning why the president never has “a word for the victims.”
