Trump’s Tolerance for Violence
The White House’s disdain for women is reinforced by defense of aide Rob Porter.
Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) General Counsel Kelly Roskam Issued the Following Statement:
“The Rob Porter saga proves once again what we’ve already known, the Trump White House is uninterested in protecting — or even believing — women. That high level officials in the White House were aware of the allegations made against Rob Porter before he was hired is indicative of the White House’s alarming culture of apathy towards women and their well-being. Praise for Rob Porter even as he was resigning sends a clear message: abusers are welcome in this administration.
“Gun Violence is another issue plaguing our nation that the Trump White House has neglected. Domestic violence and gun violence — Donald Trump doesn’t seem to care about either.”
