President Trump: Sexual abuser

President Trump: Sexual abuser

By Global

Is America prepared to elect a president found to have sexually abused a woman in a department store?

A New York civil court took just three hours to find Trump liable for abuse and defamation although it cleared him of rape.

The response to the verdict has been achingly familiar. Senior Republicans calling the case a witch hunt and the jury "a joke".

Trump probably isn’t the first sex abuser to have held high office. But he’s the first to have been found to have done so by a US jury. He's going to appeal the decision but if his own party are willing to tolerate it and denigrate the rule of law anyway - what does that tell us about America?
