But this is not the first time the White House has found itself in the middle of the #MeToo moment.
Two West Wing advisers and a third person painted a picture of a White House staff rived and confused, with fingers pointed in all directions and the president privately expressing dissatisfaction with Kelly. Others faulted Hope Hicks, the communications director, who had been romantically involved with Porter, for soliciting statements of support for him when the accusations became public.
The president's tweet Saturday came a day after he set off a firestorm when he wished Porter well in his future endeavors and made no mention of his alleged victims.
In the case of Sorensen, his former wife, Jessica Corbett, told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents conducting a background check on her husband that he had run over her foot while driving a vehicle and extinguished a cigarette on her hand during a turbulent 2 1/2-year marriage.
Led Coalition Airstrikes Kill Over 100 Syrian Soldiers
The coalition's counter-offensive involved F-22 stealth jets, F-15 fighters, and MQ-9 drones, as well as a U.S. As part of that mission, the United States has armed and trained the SDF to combat ISIS.
"He says he's innocent, and I think you have to remember that".
"He worked very hard", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office when asked for a comment about Porter. "President Trump continues to claim the 5 black men from the Central Park jogger case are guilty", O'Brien tweeted.
The 11 senators - who sit on the Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs, Intelligence, Armed Services, and Judiciary committees - also questioned recent reports that in addition to Porter, there are "multiple aides" who continue to work in the White House despite being denied a security clearance. "But it was very sad when we heard about it, and certainly he's also very sad now".
The president's loyalty to Moore, Sorensen and Porter - all of whom deny the allegations against them and have not been charged - may run counter to fast-moving social changes in the U.S. and beyond, but he is not the only figure to have expressed qualms about the role of due process when women make rape or domestic violence allegations.
Meeting ends between SKorean leader, N. Koreans
His hand-written invitation came as the USA warned the South not to be seduced by Pyongyang's Olympic charm offensive. Two years later, he was assigned as a petty officer to a ship that patrolled the North Korean coast, he said.
President Trump has full confidence in embattled chief of staff John Kelly, despite his disputed handling of spousal abuse allegations leveled against top aide Rob Porter, White House officials said Sunday.
David Sorensen, a speechwriter for President Trump, reigned when he learnt that the Washington Post was working on a story detailing accusations of physical and emotional abuse by his ex-wife.
The statement echoed Mr Trump's dismissive response to allegations of sexual misconduct or abuse made over decades against male friends, colleagues and, above all, himself. Sources told CNN that Porter first told McGahn in January 2017 that his ex-wives may present potentially damaging information during the Federal Bureau of Investigation background check.
Authorities: Woman Abandoned Baby in Airport Bathroom
In Arizona, babies must be under 72 hours old and unharmed to be legally abandoned, the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation says. She told police she had become concerned after spotting "pools of blood" on the bathroom floor.
Porter's departure, along with Kelly under fire, could deprive the West Wing of some of its steadier hands and anxious some staffers that the sense of order that appeared to have been installed in recent months could evaporate.
