Ambassador Haley Says Trump Accusers Have Right To Be Heard

  • Nikki Haley the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations says “women should always feel comfortable coming forward.”

On "Fox News Sunday", Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said President Trump's decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital will speed up the Middle East peace process.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard", Haley said on CBS's "Face the Nation". After having already said she was "incredibly proud of the women" who had come forward against members of Congress recently, Haley said she felt the same about those who accused the current president. "They should be heard and they should be dealt with", Haley responded.

In discussing the growing number of women coming forward with stories of sexual misconduct by an array of powerful men, Haley said there should be no differentiation in how they are treated, regardless of whom they are accusing.

Host John Dickerson asked Haley if Trump's election victory meant the claims against him were settled.

"We will respect anything that the two parties come together on", she said. I think that the idea that this is happening, I think it will start to bring a conscience to the situation, not just in politics, but in, you know, weve seen in Hollywood and in every industry.

In an interview with Breitbart News, Israel's Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer said of the physical move, "I'm sure it's going to happen".

Wallace noted that many world leaders, including Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, British Prime Minister Theresa May and Pope Francis, expressed concern that this move could destabilize the peace process. "The time has come", Haley told CBSs Face the Nation. I know that he was elected.

More than 10 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct before he was president.

"You do wonder, how can the country forget about us?" said one of Trump's accusers, Rachel Crooks, to the New York Times.

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.

When asked last month about the allegations against Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "Look, I think that this was covered pretty extensively during the campaign". Mr Moore and his campaign have vociferously rejected those allegations as politically motivated falsehoods, saying: "I have never engaged in sexual misconduct". "And we should all be willing to listen to them".
