President Trump recently made headlines for speaking out against all the men’s lives who have been shattered as a result of sexual assault allegations against them. Jim Acosta asked Sarah Sanders if President Trump asking for due process is ‘tone deaf.’
“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?” said President Trump.
“Is there a tone deafness there? Is there just, being on the wrong side of things?” asked Acosta.
“I don’t think the president being on–supporting due process is not tone deaf. I think it is allowing things to be investigated and a mere allegation not being the determining factor. He is not taking a side necessarily one way or the other on any specific issue here. He’s talking about mere allegations shouldn’t be the determining factor for any individual, that there should be due process.” responded Sanders.
“I think anybody here, if they were accused of something, hold on, I’m not finished… Jim, hold on. What I’m saying is I think anybody here, if they were accused of something, would want the opportunity to go through due process. That’s all we’re saying,” said Sanders. Shouldn’t this just be common sense? Check out the video below.
