Trump told to ‘do more’ on sex scandal
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.
