(CNSNews.com) - The White House said Monday that President Donald Trump thinks it is “a good thing” that women who’ve been sexually harassed or abused “feel comfortable coming forward, generally speaking,” but he denies the allegations against him. 

When asked how people should assess the president’s accuser, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “women who accuse anyone should be heard. They should be heard, and they should be dealt with.”



Asked whether the president agrees with Haley, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “Look, as the president said himself, he thinks it's a good thing that women are coming forward, but he also feels strongly that a mere allegation shouldn't determine the course.  

“And, in this case, the president has denied any of these allegations, as have eyewitnesses.  And several reports have shown those eyewitnesses also back up the president's claim in this process.And again, the American people knew this and voted for the president, and we feel like we're ready to move forward in that process,” Sanders added.

“But he thinks it's a good thing that the women who accused him are coming forward now, again?” a reporter asked.

“The president has said that it's a good thing for women to be able to feel comfortable in coming forward, generally speaking,” Sanders replied.
