Trump warns against 'false' accusations amid Porter allegations

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to warn against false accusations after two of his staffers resigned this week over allegations of domestic violence. Jonah Green reports.
The president continued to grapple with not one but two staffers who resigned this week over allegations of domestic violence.

But Donald Trump took to Twitter not to condemn the men but to warn against false accusations.

"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?"

An apparent critique of the #MeToo movement and a response to recent scandals at the White House. But this follows a pattern from the president, who repeatedly sides with the accused -- if they're allies, taking THEIR denials at face value.

When Several women accused GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual assault or misconduct when they were teenagers, Trump said this:

SOT: "He says it didn't happen. And, you know, you have to listen to him also."

Or when his campaign manager was charged with battery in 2016 for allegedly grabbing a Breitbart reporter:

"I think it's a very very sad day in this country when a man can be destroyed over something like that." Those charges later dropped.

Trump defended his former national security advisor Michael Flynn who plead guilty for lying to the FBI:

"Well I feel badly for General Flynn….Flynn lied, and it's like, they ruined his life."

Trump has had to face his own accusations: during the campaign multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct or assault. His response?

SOT: All of these liars will be sued after the election."
