A total of 19 women have accused Trump of either sexual assault or harassment. As the current climate of victims coming forward to out their predators gains steam, Trump’s alleged history of sexual misconduct is getting renewed attention. The Washington Post is reporting that three senators, Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), and Cory Booker (D-NJ) have called on Trump to resign.
“Here you have a president who has been accused by many women of assault, who says on a tape that he assaulted women,” Sanders told NBC’s Meet the Press. “He might want to think about doing the same.”
“The president should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct,” Merkley said last week.
