The White House has once again refuted claims by more than a dozen women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment and accused them of lying.
In response to a question at today’s press briefing about whether the women are lying, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: ‘We’ve been clear on that in the beginning, and the President’s spoken on that,’ CNN reports.
Sanders’ response comes after Trump fielded a question about sexual harassment claims on Monday, October 16. He branded them as ‘totally fake news’.
Trump was asked about the claims following a weekend revelation that attorneys representing Summer Zervos, a 2007 ‘Apprentice’ contestant, had obtained a subpoena ordering the Trump campaign to hand over any documents it had related to Zervos.
The subpoena seeks ‘all documents concerning any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately’.
‘All I can say is it’s totally fake news. It’s fake and made-up stuff and it’s disgraceful what happens, but that happens in the world of politics,’ Trump told reporters at the White House.
