Trump's Accusers Have Right to be Heard — UN Envoy Haley

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said Sunday that women who accuse someone of sexual misconduct deserve to be heard, even if it involves President Donald Trump.

But U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley broke from the administration's messaging during her appearance on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday morning to say that the President's accusers should be heard.

"I think we heard from them prior to the election".

Ms Haley, discussing that cultural shift, applauded the women who have come forward: "I'm proud of their strength".

"You know", Haley said, "I am incredibly proud of the women who have come forward. And we should all be willing to listen to them".

The announcement by Trump on Wednesday to move the embassy from Tel Aviv and to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital roiled much of the worldwide community - including the Palestinians, whose seat of government is in east Jerusalem.

Security personnel used force to disperse most of the protesters and detained some, witnesses said. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard was seriously wounded and his attacker arrested.

"When it comes to those people (who are) upset, we knew that was going to happen". A judge is weighing whether to allow that case to proceed.

On Sunday, Alyssa Farah, press secretary to Vice President Pence, announced he would be traveling to the Middle East. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said that "to re-litigate the election is impossible". "Should people who were victimized have their day in court, their opportunity to present their information? And that's what the president did with this", Haley said, explaining that it was time to acknowledge the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that is a necessary part of a lasting peace.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard. He might want to think about doing the same".

Before Mr Trump won the 2016 presidential election, multiple women accused him of unwanted kissing or groping.

Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones are running to fill the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions - but don't forget, Alabama is already represented in the Senate by Sen.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment about the latest allegation, but the President has rejected the allegations against him as false and branded the women liars. "The fact pattern on him is far more damning than the fact pattern on Al Franken".
