Donald Trump hits back at accusers after harassment allegations resurface

Three women who have previously accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct renewed their claims on Monday, calling for a congressional investigation into his behavior.

Trump and White House officials have denied the allegations, some of which date back to the 1980s.

"These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year's campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory", the White House said.

And aside from his own administration's claims that Trump has, in fact, been in the same room as at least some of the women, he has also been personally and professionally involved with others.

Leeds first spoke to The New York Times last year, alleging that Trump groped her on an airplane more than 30 years ago. Roy Moore, the US Senate candidate in Alabama accused by nine women of sexual misconduct, has been endorsed by Trump, who held a campaign rally in nearby Pensacola, Florida, on Friday.

"President Trump has committed assault according to these women", Gillibrand told CNN.

A senior figure in the US Democratic party, Minnesota Senator Al Franken is accused of forcibly kissing radio personality Leeann Tweeden and groping her while she slept during a 2006 tour to Afghanistan to entertain US troops.

Crooks, a former Trump Tower receptionist who accuses him of forcibly kissing her in a 2005 incident, called the White House statement "laughable".

While the release date was simply teased as "coming 2018", Soul Calibur VI will launch on PS4, Xbox One , and PC's through Stream. In recent years, it's added character cameos from other popular series, perhaps hoping to speak to a broader audience.

Three women, who previous year accused Donald Trump of making unwanted sexual advances, renewed their allegations Monday, saying it was time Congress investigate claims against the president in the wake of dozens of other powerful American men being held accountable for their treatment of women.

"As you have seen, I am a victim of one of the great political smear campaigns in the history of our country", Trump said at a North Carolina rally in mid-October 2016.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that any women claiming to be victims of sexual harassment - including those implicating Trump - "should be heard". "They are numerous. I've heard these women's testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking".

One Democrat, the NY senator Kristen Gillibrand, called on Donald Trump to step down.

Mr Trump's voice can be heard on the Entertainment Tonight programme with host Billy Bush, speaking disparagingly about women's body parts and saying: "when you're a celebrity they let you do anything".

"I know that he was elected", Haley said on CBS.

But what the reemergence of Trump's accusers, the Haley comments and the overall culture at the moment seem likely to do is force Trump's hand to go beyond his original statements on his accusers.
