All the Democrats who have called on Trump to resign over sexual misconduct allegations

"In an objective setting, without question, a person with this record would have entered the graveyard of political aspirations, never to return", Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist who accused Trump of forcibly kissing her outside an elevator in 2005, said Monday at an event with other victims.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and one of the most high-profile women in Trump's administration, said on Sunday that any woman who has felt mistreated by a man has the right to speak up, even if she is accusing the president.

Mr Trump says Democrats "have been unable to show any collusion with Russia" and now are "moving on" to these allegations. The three women who spoke out again on Monday said they were hoping, in part, that their stories would gain momentum in the newly charged environment.

Three US lawmakers announced their resignations from Congress last week over sexual harassment allegations, including Democratic Senator Al Franken of Minnesota.

They cited the recent revelations of sexual misconduct by prominent men in business, media, and politics, for their decision to speak out publicly against Trump once again.

"The investigation by Congress is probably the only thing we can ask for", said Crooks.

"President Trump should resign", Gillibrand said.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard".

"Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office "begging" for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump", he wrote.

The press conference was hosted by Brave New Films, a nonprofit that recently made a short film titled "16 Women and Donald Trump".

"The president has addressed these accusations directly and denied all of these allegations", Sanders added. Among their ranks are his ex-wife Ivana, who once described her husband raping her in Trump Tower in a fit of rage after a botched scalp surgery.

She said on finals night he came backstage. The case prompted many other women to come forward.

Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, this week said that Mr Trump's accusers "should be heard". "I know that he was elected, but women should always feel comfortable coming forward. We can not ignore the multitude of women who have come forward with accusations against Mr. Trump". "The American people knew this and voted for the president".

Sanders also declined to say if defending her boss against allegations of sexual misconduct was hard.

"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", a White House spokesperson said.

It continued, "The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them".

"He stands there as I'm handing him his table assignment and he says, 'I remember you". "None of us are comfortable with it".
