Trump blasts Franken, but stays silent on Moore

Trump referred to Sen.

Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has slammed Donald Trump and Republican Senate nominee Ray Moore for being unapologetic over the sexual misconduct allegations, saying the US President has "disgraced the office". Even though a number of Republicans on Capitol Hill have called for Moore to step aside, the president has said little himself.

"The American people, I think, spoke loud and clear when they elected this president", Sanders said.

With the country confronting revelations of sexual impropriety by powerful men in entertainment and politics, Trump's status as someone accused months before the recent wave of news stories is also a complication for the White House.

Accusations of Franken's misconduct come two days after a candid hearing in Washington, during which female lawmakers said sexual harassment is a pervasive problem on Capitol Hill.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the allegations against him as fake news, most recently telling reporters on October 16: "It's just fake. It's fake. It's made-up stuff". But he has ignored repeated questions from reporters since then and left it to Sanders to offer bare-bones comments.

It faces stiff competition from long-trusted brands like Daimler AG, which unveiled its own semi prototype last month. The semi truck , called Tesla Semi, can go as far as 500 miles between charges and can haul 80,000 pounds at a time.

Asked why Trump finds allegations against Moore troubling while contending the ones against him are to be dismissed, Sanders said that the president "has certainly a lot more insight into what he personally did or didn't do".

Sports broadcaster and former model Leeann Tweeden also accused Franken, a former comedian once tipped as a possible White House candidate, of kissing her without her consent. "Look at the contrast between Al Franken and Roy Moore and Donald Trump". "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?" read the president's first tweet, sent just after 10 p.m.in Washington.

Moore has so far been defiant in the face of calls for him to abandon his candidacy. She also discussed some of her own missteps during the campaign.

"I have tremendous respect for your work for the USO and I am ashamed that my actions ruined that experience for you". "I'm sorry, he's not a predator". Al Franken (D-MN) forcibly kissed and groped Leeann Tweeden in 2006.

"It's been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker", she said. However, he has remained silent on the allegations facing Moore. "He's been very busy here working", Conway said from the White House. Al Franken late Thursday night, attacking the senator for a recently unearthed photograph showing him appearing to fondle the breasts of a fellow entertainer on a military tour.

While Trump sees an opening to make life more hard for Democrats, it is also true that Republicans' internal politics make his delving further into the Moore race complicated.
