White House pushing back on sexual misconduct allegations against president
The White House is pushing back on sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump.
Three women who previously accused the president of sexual harassment shared their stories.  
Their allegations occurred before he became president and they are now calling for a congressional investigation.
"In some areas of our society, people are being held accountable for unwanted behavior,” says Jessica Leeds. “But we are not holding our president accountable for what he is and who he is."
"The president has addressed these accusations directly and denied all of these allegations and this took place long before he was elected to be president and the people of this country at a decisive election supported President Trump and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process," says White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
Four senators are calling for the president's resignation, including New Jersey's Cory Booker.
