Close aid of Donald Trump resigned after his two ex-wives accused

Vastavam web: Rob Portman, White House Staff Secretary and a close aide of US President Donald Trump, resigned today after his two ex-wives accused him of physical and emotional abuse.White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Portman has resigned, a day after the UK-based Daily Mail newspaper published allegations of his two ex-wives, Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby, accusing him of domestic violence.”I have been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign,” he said in a statement.

As staff secretary, Porter’s responsibility was mainly in the flow of paper that crossed Trump’s desk, including the wave of executive orders and actions that Trump inked during the first months of his tenure.A lawyer, Porter also participated in the process of legally vetting the myriad documents that require the President’s signature.Willoughby, a motivational speaker, told the Daily Mail she was married to Porter from 2009-13.

She said she filed a protective order against him in June 2010 after he allegedly punched the glass of the door at their Alexandria, Virginia, home.Willoughby told the Washington Post: “He has never faced repercussions that forced him to confront his issues.”I care about him and want what’s best for him, but that doesn’t necessarily mean him keeping his job because he needs to face these underlying issues.” Trump, given the range of sexual harassment and assault allegations against him, has long struggled to respond to the nationwide focus on the mistreatment against women, CNN noted.During the election, at least 15 women accused Trump of ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behaviour around women.
