Haley: Women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct should be heard

11 December 2017

But U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley broke from the administration's messaging during her appearance on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday morning to say that the President's accusers should be heard. The White House has said that the women who have accused Trump were lying and voters rejected their accusations when they elected Trump. And I think we heard from them prior to the election.

Asked whether Mr Trump's election settled the matter, Haley said: "That's for the people to decide".

She says women who raise complaints of harassment will "bring a conscience to the situation".

When asked about Trump's accusers by Dickerson on Sunday, Haley said the women should be heard.

She also lauded the "cultural shift" taking place in Hollywood, politics and elsewhere, adding she was "incredibly proud of the women who have come forward".

Michael Flynn reportedly told a business associate that the economic sanctions against Russian Federation would be "ripped up". The congressman wrote that the whistleblower was "extremely uncomfortable" with the conversation and left shortly thereafter.

"I want the Security Council and all of the worldwide community to understand: when you bully Israel, you are not helping the peace process", she said. Im proud of their strength. I know that he was elected. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan and Rep. Trent Franks, R-Arizona, announced they would step down from office following allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard", she said. "And we should all be willing to listen to them". The lawsuit, which the New York Times said may move forward by the end of the year, could reignite the allegations against Trump, as his victims could be deposed and allowed to have their day in court against the man who assaulted them.

The former SC governor also said that she was proud of all the women who have come forward to share their stories of sexual misconduct in numerous industries across the country. "I'm proud of their courage", Haley said.

More than 10 women have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct before he was president, and Trump, while filming a segment of the television program "Access Hollywood", said he has kissed and groped women.

When asked if Mr. Trump's move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital and begin the early stages of moving the USA embassy in Israel to the city would further inflame tensions and disrupt work on the peace process, Haley said, "I think that when you recognize the truth, when both parties recognize reality, peace comes".
