President Trump defended two former White House staffers who have been accused of domestic abuse by their ex-wives, tweeting on Saturday morning that ‘people’s lives are being destroyed’ by ‘a mere allegation’.

‘Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new.

‘There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?’ he wrote.

The president’s tweet was in reference to Rob Porter, the former White House Staff Secretary, who resigned this week after his two ex-wives came forward with claims of abuse and photographs of injuries.

The tweet may also have referred to David Sorensen, a speechwriter for the Council on Environmental Quality who resigned on Friday night after his ex-wife, Jessica Corbett, told The Washington Post how he had allegedly abused her.

The Post claimed she approached them before DailyMail.com published the first allegations against Porter this week.

Sorensen vehemently denied her accusations and described them as ‘false and creative’ to DailyMail.com, saying she was driven by jealousy for his job in DC and was ‘anti-Trump’.

Trump has not referred to him by name since the allegations emerged. On Friday, the president said he was ‘sad’ to learn of the allegations against Porter, 40.
