  • 2 2018 US President Donald Trump speaks as he meets with North Korean defectors in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington DC

Jessica Corbett is the wife of David Sorensen, who on Friday resigned as a White House speechwriter amid allegations that he physically and emotionally abused her.

Despite reports and social media accounts documenting violence perpetrated mostly by white supremacists, and not anti-racism counter-protesters, Trump argued to consider actions on "both sides".

Mr Trump's White House has been heavily criticised for its handling of the allegations, which come amid a national debate over sexual misconduct and the #MeToo movement that has seen an avalanche of claims fell towering figures across various industries. "Some are true and some are false", Trump posted online.

President Donald Trump said on Saturday that lives were being "shattered" by allegations that may be false after two of his White House aides quit over domestic abuse accusations. Porter was married from 2003 to 2008, with a black eye was published by the Daily Mail on Thursday.

Further, Conway told Tapper she didn't worry about White House communications director Hope Hicks dating Porter, as "I've rarely met somebody so strong with such excellent instincts and loyalty and smarts" - as if strong, smart women are never abused. He says he believes the White House had no intention of ever getting Porter security clearance because they knew he wouldn't pass the check.

The post was interpreted as a comment not just on his former aide, or a second White House staffer, speechwriter David Sorensen, who was on Friday also forced to resign despite denying similar accusations, but also on the wider #metoo movement that has encouraged women to speak out since the Harvey Weinstein scandal previous year.

Earlier Sunday morning, Mulvaney tried to pretend that Trump wasn't defending Porter at all when he tweeted about "due process". "He's very sad. He also, as you probably know, he says he's innocent".

Jeh Johnson, a homeland security secretary during the Obama administration and a friend of Kelly, said the White House would be worse off without Kelly.

Of Porter, Trump said, "It's obviously a tough time for him".

There are also now questions about White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's future, although officials said the president does not intend to fire him.

The article also states the Trump's believes Rob Porter's ex-wives and was outraged that a guy who he called, "straight out of central casting" could have committed acts of violence against women. And we hope he has a wonderful career and he will have a great career ahead of him. She denied reports that Trump might be considering her as a replacement.

Asked by CNN's Jake Tapper about Trump's tweet on Saturday that lives were being "destroyed" by allegations that are sometimes false, Conway said there was "no reason not to believe the women", who gave evidence to the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the threat of perjury.
