Booker Wants Trump to Resign Like Franken Did
Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) wants President Donald Trump to resign like Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) did over allegations of sexual harassment.
Booker asked why Trump doesn’t “do the honorable thing” while he was in Alabama on Saturday and made the comment to a reporter from Vice News, the Washington Examiner reports.
“I just watched Al Franken do the honorable thing and resign. My question is, why isn’t Donald Trump doing the same thing?” Booker said on Saturday. “Who has more serious allegations against him, with more women who have come forward.”
On Thursday, Franken took a swipe at Trump as he gave a speech on the Senate floor where he announced his resignation. While noting what he called the “irony” of Trump staying in office with accusations of sexual harassment against him, Franken did not apologize to his accusers in the speech and said some of the charges against him were false.
Many Democrats have been critical of Trump for calling out Franken for allegations of sexual harassment when they claim he admitted to doing so himself in the “Access Hollywood” tape. Trump has denied any allegations against him.
