Mulvaney Responds to Reports About John Kelly's Future at WH

Shameless Trump Attacks Victimized Women For Exposing Abusive Men

Shameless Trump Attacks Victimized Women For Exposing Abusive Men

Conway told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that Trump continues to have confidence in Chief of Staff John Kelly and Communications Director Hope Hicks, despite reports that Kelly expressed a willingness to resign over his handling of allegations of domestic abuse against Rob Porter, the White House staff secretary.

We dig into President Trump's response to the allegations, including the tweet he sent out this weekend about "due process" for the accused. By early fall of 2017, it was widely known among Trump's top aides - including chief of staff John Kelly - that Porter was facing troubles in obtaining his security clearance and that his ex-wives claimed he had abused them.

We also talk about DACA and the negotiations starting this week in Congress on immigration. "Some are true and some are false", Trump posted online.

Willoughby, who was married to Porter from 2009 to 2013, argued in her piece that Trump's reaction synced with a larger pattern related to abuse allegations made by women toward powerful men.

"Supporting due process for any allegation is not tone deaf, I think it is allowing things to be investigated and a mere allegation not be the determining factor", Sanders said.

In June of that year, ICE granted him a one-year stay of removal. "His kids need him; I need him", Sonia Berrones told CBS News . His latest appeal to stay in the country was denied Thursday by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

Porter worked directly with Kelly, the chief of staff, and was considered a skilled insider.

Mr Trump is said to be annoyed by the focus on the latest White House turmoil, especially as it comes on the eve of his release of a major infrastructure spending initiative.

"He's not taking a side necessarily one way or the other", she said.

Trump made no mention of the women or the abuse allegations when he spoke about Porter at the White House on Friday.

Mulvaney wasn't the only senior White House official to take to the Sunday shows to defend Kelly-adviser Kellyanne Conway and director of legislative affairs Marc Short also said that there's no indication Kelly is going anywhere.

Paxton died on February 25, 2017 - 11 days after the procedure - and his family is seeking unspecified damages. The actor, 61, died of a stroke almost one year ago following a heart surgery for aortic aneurysm fix .

Pence said, "I was appalled when I learned of the allegations against rob porter". He added: "There is no recovery for someone falsely accused ― life and career are gone".

White House chief of staff may be the second toughest job in Washington and surely never more hard than in the current administration where knowledge, experience, expertise and even decorum are in short supply. Nothing in Kelly's biography before his first day at the White House suggests that he is anything other than a calm, rational, level-headed public servant.

"He's up to his neck in it", Maloney said of Kelly, "and he chose not to deal with it".

Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said Thursday that Kelly did not have "detailed updates about what may or may not have been alleged".

Trump's comments were a sharp contrast to those of Vice President Mike Pence, who told NBC's Lester Holt on Friday "there's no tolerance in this White House and no place in America for domestic abuse". Two of Porter's ex-wives say they suffered years of abuse, including physical altercations.

"Look, he denies it", Trump said in November when he broke his silence on the matter.
