Trump has confidence in Kelly, not seeking replacement: adviser

"You have to look at the result here, Rob Porter's gone from one of the top aides to Donald Trump, our president, to no longer working" at the White House, she said.

His resignation came two days after Rob Porter, the White House staff secretary, submitted his own resignation after his two former wives publicly accused him of being abusive to them when they were married.

Porter has denied the charges.

Some commentators objected to his reference to due process, for example pointing to his promotion of a conspiracy theory about former President Barack Obama's nationality.

Two of Porter's ex-wives told The Daily Mail he abused them and also included photo evidence. "Sorensen provided photos of what he said were injuries his ex-wife inflicted upon him during their fights, including bruises and scrapes", the newspaper also reported.

The latest imbroglios involving White House personnel are taking place during a turbulent cultural conversation about sexual harassment, with powerful people being laid low by allegations that sometimes stretch back decades.

However, Trump had said that Porter's departure was "very sad" and "he did a very good job while he was in the White House". "I don't think it's an issue". "And we hope he has a wonderful career", Trump said.

Canada's Justine Dufour-Lapointe wins Olympic silver in women's moguls — NewsAlert
Four years ago Justine Dufour-Lapointe captured an Olympic gold medal in the women's moguls freestyle skiing event in Sochi. Her victory was confirmed when Canada's Andi Naude, the sixth and last athlete to compete in the final, failed to finish.

The White House pushes back on unverified reports by the mainstream media, suggesting Chief of Staff General John Kelly has offered to leave his post.

Trump's tweet came as he was holed up at the White House, according to the press pool, and not at his frequent weekend retreat of Mar-a-Lago in Florida, nor one of his beloved golf courses. "He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent, so you'll have to talk to him about that".

White House aides on Sunday television news shows stressed that Kelly was not in any danger of being ousted from his post. He may not have read underlying reports by the FBI, which investigated Porter's security clearance, or contemporaneous police reports, she said. Both men left their posts despite denying the allegations of physical and emotional abuse from ex-wives. Kelly told reporters on Friday that he was informed in November that Porter had allegations against him that were delaying his security clearance, but that he did not know the full extent until this week, MSNBC said. Shortly after that, McGahn informed chief of staff John Kelly that there could be problems related to Porter's security clearance.

Others faulted Hope Hicks, the communications director, who had been romantically involved with Porter, for soliciting statements of support for him when the accusations became public.

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence called Trump's remarks "dangerous" on its blog Friday, saying it sends a message that accusers will be believed over victims.

Two friends and associates of Corbett said she confided in them during the marriage that her husband was abusive.
