"Domestic violence and abuse must always be aggressively condemned", Lieu wrote. "That should have been the statement".

Kelly has made clear to the president in the last 24 hours that he's willing to resign in light of the president's dissatisfaction over the West Wing's handling of the allegations against former Staff Secretary Rob Porter, according to sources who have spoken with Trump and Kelly.

"In this case, you have contemporaneous police reports, you have women speaking to the Federal Bureau of Investigation under threat of perjury. you have photographs, and when you look at all of that pulled together, Rob Porter did the right thing by resigning", Conway said on CNN's "State of the Union".

In both his statements to the press and his latest tweet, Trump has insinuated that he thinks Porter is innocent and the allegations are false.

Speaking in the Oval Office Mr Trump said: "We found out about it recently and I was surprised by it, but we certainly wish him well and it's a tough time for him". The abuse claims were first reported in a British tabloid, The Daily Mail.

"Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation", Trump complained in a Saturday morning tweet.

A White House speechwriter resigned Friday amid allegations of domestic abuse, the second such departure this week.

David Sorensen denies his former wife's allegations he was violent and emotionally abusive.

Trump's comments have set off a firestorm at a time of national conversation about the mistreatment of women.

The president, meanwhile, has vociferously denied charges from more than a dozen women that he is guilty of sexual harassment or abuse.

When it happened, she said, new whistle-blowing procedures, safeguarding practises and training were put in place. During the probe, Oxfam dismissed four staff members and another three resigned, including van Hauwermeiren.


Asked the same question about Kelly on ABC, Conway replied, "General Kelly has said otherwise, and you would have to ask him the question squarely".

"His tweets kind of turn my stomach, " she added.

Lisa Fierstein appeared in disguise on a 1990 episode titled "High Class Battered Women".

Democratic leader Patty Murray of Washington echoed Speier's concerns. "I'm going to keep standing with them, and trusting them, even if the President won't".

The White House said Saturday the administration is working with Senate allies on a plan to approve 4 million stalled green card applications while making a path to citizenship for 1.8 million people illegally brought to the U.S.as children.

They came amid swirling questions about how White House chief of staff John Kelly had handled the matter and whether he could maintain his job despite Trump's growing frustration.

"This blatant denial of any wrongdoing is unacceptable, " she posted.

Kelly himself faced criticism for initially defending his aide - only to later shift course after the publication of photos showing one of Porter's ex-wives with a black eye. He did not elaborate.

"Forty minutes later he was gone", Kelly said. While many blasted Trump for not mentioning anything about the victims, others have called for Kelly's resignation amid the scandal as well.

Living with Donald Trump in the White House has been a challenge, to say the very least. "Where are the voices of my Republican colleagues?". In an interview with NBC News, "There's no tolerance in this White House, and no place in America for domestic abuse".
