The Quick Facts

On Saturday, President Trump caused a stir when he tweeted, "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. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?"

This tweet represents one of the President's most direct remarks on the U.S.' national reckoning with sexual harassment and abuse. Although this tweet did not specific names, it was published a few days after two former White House staffers, David Sorensen and Rob Porter, resigned due to accusations of domestic violence.
