Donald Trump’s time has come to face his own accusers of sexual harassment and one man is trying to assure that is exactly what happens.
Senator Bernie Sanders stated early this Thursday that President Trump should consider resigning over his growing sexual misconduct allegations that were first held against him during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“We have a president of the United States who acknowledged on a tape widely seen all over the country that he’s assaulted women, so I would hope maybe the president of the United States might pay attention of what’s going on and also think about resigning,” Sanders said while speaking to “CBS This Morning,” making a reference to the “Access Hollywood” tape that was released to The Washington Post last year.
The senator then talked about the need for a cultural revolution in order to address sexual misconduct.
“What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country, where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated. We need a cultural revolution in this country,” Sanders said.
Sanders’s remarks come in the aftermath of numerous women from Hollywood to Capitol Hill have stepping forth to accuse influential men of sexual harassment.
The senator’s colleague, Senator Al Franken is speculated to resign this Thursday amidst several allegations of sexual misconduct being held against him.
Over 30 Democratic senators have called upon Franken to resign after another woman stepped forward on Wednesday to blame the senator of forcibly trying to kiss her.
The recent outburst of accusations have caused the downfall of powerful men, such as film producer Harvey Weinstein, “Today” host Matt Lauer and former Representative John Conyers Jr.,who retired on Tuesday among the mounting pressure from his Democratic colleagues.
