Donald Trump maintains a tradition of the Obama era, which raises the question of whether an elephant is in the room. The man, who once boasted of grabbing women by her genitals, once again turned to the prevention of sexual assault. Following in the footsteps of his predecessor, President Trump declared in a statement released Friday by the White House "National Month of Sexual Awareness and Contraception".
"Sex crimes are tragically spread in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability," read the President's proclamation. "These heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately: in intimate relationships, in public spaces and at work, and we need to respond to sexual assault by holding the perpetrators accountable."
What makes Trump's Annunciation particularly notable are the comments he made for touching or kissing has women without their consent. In addition, at least 16 women have kept accounts to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct. These allegations range from attacks, unwanted groping, non-consensual kissing, sexual harassment, to women in various stages of disentanglement. Trump has sharply rejected these allegations and called his prosecutors "liars."
The White House has also reiterated Trump's denial with spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who tells reporters the official White House position that all women are lying to accuse the president of sexual misconduct, assault or harassment. "That was clear to us from the beginning," Sanders told a CBS News reporter during a press conference on October 27.
A band recorded in 2005 during Trump's appearance on Access Hollywood It seemed as if the former real estate mogul boasted of being able to kiss and touch women without their consent. "If you're a star, let them do it," says Trump on the tape that appeared during the election. Take it on the P-y. You can do anything.
In the proclamation published Friday by the White House, Trump said his government pledged to "empower the victims to identify the perpetrators so they can be held accountable. "The President noted that" the victims of attacks are too often … silent "because they" are afraid of retribution by their perpetrators "and have little faith in the justice system.
Still, it's not hard to see why a survivor of sexual assault has no faith in the legal system when considering some of the things judges have said to the victims: Last year, a Utah judge praised a man who was convicted of object-rape and violent sexual abuse as "an exceptionally good man "and" big man "was sentenced before his two victims, and in 2016 a judge from New Jersey is said to have asked the victim if she had tried to stop the alleged rape by closing her legs.
" We must encourage the victims to report sexual assault and prosecution in order to bring the guilty parties to justice, and we must unceasingly support victims and survivors [sic] "is the proclamation of President Trump. As part of this support, the President announced that the Department of Justice would set up a technical assistance center for victims of sexual violence to help community organizations and officials better understand how to respond to sexual assault.
"Through a concerted effort to educate ourselves better, strengthen the victims and punish criminals, our nation will work closer to ending the mourning, fear and suffering of sexual assault [sic]," it says in Trump's proclamation. "Preventing sexual violence is everyone's concern."
