Washington: US President Donald Trump has said that people’s lives are being shattered by a mere allegation, in the wake of the resignations of two White House aides following allegations of domestic abuse.
“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation,” Trump said in a tweet, after Staff Secretary Rob Porter and speech writer David Sorensen resigned this week.
“Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new,” Trump said.
“There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?” he said.
Porter resigned from his post at the White House on Wednesday amid abuse allegations from two ex-wives.
However, Trump had said that Porter’s departure was “very sad” and “he did a very good job while he was in the White House.
Sorensen resigned this week after being accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife. He had denied the allegations and alleged that he “was the victim of repeated physical violence” during his marriage.
