Women who accuse Trump of harassment 'should be heard,' envoy says

Watch Nikki Haley smokes the United Nations in blistering speech over Trump’s Jerusalem declaration

"And I think we heard from them prior to the election", Ms Haley said in an appearance on current affairs TV programme Face the Nation.

Face the Nation host John Dickerson then asked her how people should "assess the accusers of the President"-and her answer might be surprising to those used to hearing her defend Trump. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up", the top Indian American diplomat said".

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

Haley said she was proud of all the women who have come forward to share their stories of sexual misconduct in numerous industries across the country.

Before Mr Trump won the 2016 presidential election, multiple women accused him of unwanted kissing or groping. She added that while people may be upset with the decision, it is only because "courage causes that" and she strongly believes this is "going to move the ball forward for the peace process". Im proud of their strength.

"The accusations against Trump have recirculated with the current conversation about sexual harassment in Congress and allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is accused of pursuing relationships with teenagers, molesting a 14-year-old and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old when he was in his 30s". 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.

"I think it will start to bring conscience to the situation", the former governor of SC said. "And I think the time has come".

Haley went on to say that there have been "great negotiations" and that they will continue to do that.

"And does the election mean that's a settled issue?" I know that he was elected.

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.

Responding to a question on the Arab League, she said the USA had a lot more in common with the grouping than they have ever had before.

"The president should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct", Merkley said last week in an interview for the weekday version of "Meet the Press".
