Trump told to ‘do more’ on sex scan­dal

The Guardian Weekly - - World roundup -

1 Politi­cians from both sides of the aisle said Don­ald Trump’s han­dling of al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct against Roy Moore, pic­tured, the Repub­li­can Se­nate can­di­date in Alabama, was not good enough and he should call for Moore to with­draw.

On CNN’s State of the Union last Sun­day, the US trea­sury sec­re­tary, Steven Mnuchin, re­peated the line that was first ar­tic­u­lated by the White House press sec­re­tary, Sarah San­ders. “If the al­le­ga­tions prove to be true, he should step down,” he said. Dick Durbin, a Demo­cratic sen­a­tor from Illi­nois, coun­tered that it was Trump’s “re­spon­si­bil­ity to do more when it comes to this sit­u­a­tion”. John Ka­sich, the Repub­li­can gov­er­nor of Ohio, agreed that the White House re­sponse was not enough.
