Amid a White House in tumult, Trump defends former aide

Second White House official resigns amid abuse allegations

"What the president is saying when he is talking about due process, he's right in this way, we are a country of laws", Conway said on CNN's "State of the Union".

He says "some are true and some are false" but says there's "no recovery for someone falsely accused". Some are old and some are new.

"As long as Donald Trump is president, our government is best served if John Kelly is in the job of chief of staff", Johnson said.

A second White House staffer has departed the Trump administration in the wake of abuse allegations.

Sorensen resigned this week after being accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife.

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short made similar arguments on NBC's "Meet The Press" on Sunday, after host Chuck Todd showed a highlights reel of Trump suggesting numerous allegations of sexual abuse and physical assault by powerful men against women were false.

But seven years on, the war in Syria shows no signs of ending anytime soon. So we dont know what will happen, what they will do If the Turks advance.

Following Rob Porter's resignation, president Donald Trump took to his favorite medium of communication - Twitter - and addressed the situation.

Several senior aides fanned out on the morning talk shows to explain how the White House handled the departure of staff secretary Rob Porter, a rising West Wing star who exited after two ex-wives came forward with allegations of spousal abuse.

Kelly told reporters on Friday that he was informed in November that Porter had allegations against him that were delaying his security clearance, but that he did not know the full extent until this week, MSNBC said. A source said Trump gave Shah a mild rebuke for the comment, advising him never to apologise. I think he's very disturbed by it.

"He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent", Mr Trump added.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn, a prominent Republican donor and Trump friend, is among the powerful men to lose their jobs over such allegations.

Kelly later said in a statement he was shocked by "new" allegations against Porter, stressing that domestic violence is unacceptable.

With 12 to choose from, Aguero recalled the one he hit against Bayern Munich in the Champions League group stages in 2014. At the same time five or six of the (under-23) players I could have taken had a game here, just one or two hours later.

"I can tell you that some of the women that are complaining - I know how much he's helped them, and even recently, " Trump said on NBC's "Meet The Press" in July 2016.

Trump and "many" White House staffers were irritated by Kelly's support for Porter's character and for falsely insisting he that he aggressively sought to have him fired once the abuse allegations surfaced, according to The New York Times.

"When I return to Washington, D.C., I'm going to look into the matter, and I'll share my counsel with the president directly", Pence added.

Once again, Trump managed to jump to the glowing defense of an individual accused of reprehensible actions, lamenting that Porter was going through a very tough time.

The White House said in a statement that it had been made aware of the allegations before The Washington Post reached out regarding the story.

Sexual misconduct claims have brought down a growing list of influential men in politics, the media, the entertainment industry and other sectors since the scandal over decades of alleged abuse by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein erupted in October. I think it's a very special time, a lot of things are coming out and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very, very good for women and I'm very happy a lot of these things are coming out.
