Trump's speechwriter, Sorensen, resigns over abuse allegations

Trump's speechwriter, Sorensen, resigns over abuse allegations

"I don't think that he has really taken the time to deconstruct why it is that he behaves this way, and until he is able to do that, I don't know that he has control over it", she told Cooper.

President Donald Trump is defending former aide Rob Porter - and wishing him well, while sidestepping any mention of the two ex-wives who've accused Porter of physical and emotional abuse.

She added that this could be indicative of a bigger problem at the White House and it goes beyond a "public relations" misstep. But, John Bremer, a longtime friend of Corbett and D.C. resident said Corbett told him of the fear she was living in due to his political connections. "But we certainly wish him well, obviously a tough time for him".

The president's tweet was in reference to Rob Porter, the former White House Staff Secretary, who resigned this week after his two ex-wives came forward with claims of abuse and photographs of injuries.

White House counsel Don McGahn was also informed of the allegations against Porter previous year but did not investigate them.

"These outrageous allegations are simply false", Porter said in a statement.

Last night, a source said, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski called Trump and urged him to fire Kelly.

Speechwriter David Sorensen was confronted by officials, White House says. Chief of Staff John Kelly, whose relationship with Trump has been strained in recent weeks, is taking the lion's share of the blame, as I reported yesterday.

It was his first comment on the allegations against Mr Porter, who had been one of his most trusted staffers until this week.

Spokesperson Raj Shah said in an official statement that the White House knew about the allegations before long the Washington Post reached out about them.

Kelly reportedly told Trump he would be willing to resign if asked to do so.

Trump also offered a measure of support for Porter by saying he had a "great career ahead of him".

With a resemblance to her globally famous cousins, the 19-year-old often shares pictures of them on her popular Instagram account. Bella , 21, recognized the man as she was heading back to her building, according to TMZ , and called law enforcement.


It is alleged that the former White House staff secretary gave one ex-wife a black eye while another filed a restraining order.

Porter's departure and the White House's handling of the allegations have dogged the West Wing this week.

"If he (Trump) draws scrutiny to himself, he's OK with that".

According to the White House, his position did not require a security clearance and his background check was ongoing.

Hicks, perhaps Trump's most trusted aide, had helped craft the response to the scandal as White House communications director, despite being romantically involved with Porter. He did a very good job while he was in the White House, and we hope that he has a wonderful career.

The announcement came as part of a slew of promotions announced by the White House Wednesday evening. Porter resigned after his ex-wives' allegations became public.
