Amid a White House in tumult, Trump defends former aide

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly walks with White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter to depart with U.S. President Donald Trump aboard the Marine One helicopter from the White House in Washington

Some are old and some are new.

Kelly went on to say that he had learned of Porter's true situation less than an hour before he removed him from his job. "Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?" he said.

Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus is denying a report in that he'd talked with President Donald Trump about his successor John Kelly following the controversy over ex-staff secretary Rob Porter.

Kelly, who according to reports, learned of the allegations against Porter months ago when he failed to pass an Federal Bureau of Investigation background check for a security clearance, lauded him as "a man of true integrity and honor" on Tuesday.

In the days since Willoughby's story became public, comments on social media from abuse survivors tell stories of being afraid to come forward - and not being believed when they do.

Over the past two years, Trump has also been accused by more than a dozen women of making unwanted sexual advances against them.

Trump not only accepted Porter's claim of innocence but praised him for doing "a very good job" and offered his wishes for "a wonderful career" ahead.

Hicks is one of the President's longest-serving White House confidantes, lasting through numerous campaign and White House shakeups. "And there can be no tolerance for violence against women and we have to be absolutely clear about that". "And I think you have to remember that, he said very strongly yesterday he's innocent".

This White House has a culture problem, starting at the top.

'Keep in mind, before the general got there just about anybody could get access to the West Wing, so there was a bunch of people who are not inside the White House who are also upset, ' Mulvaney said.

Conway during the ABC News interview also defended the president's treatment of women in the White House.

Kelly became the subject of scrutiny after allegations of domestic abuse against White House staff secretary Porter first came to light last Tuesday. "We immediately confronted the staffer, he denied the allegations and he resigned today", said Shah.

Two friends and associates of Corbett said she told them her husband was abusive.

"Forty minutes later he was gone", Kelly said.

Trump said he was sad to learn of the allegations, but added: "As you probably know, he says he's innocent".

The chief of staff's handling of the matter has drawn the ire of Trump, according to two people who speak to the president regularly but are not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations.

"The general is there to put in policies and processes and procedures".

"In talking with the President, I think he's saddened about what happened with Rob", Short told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

The White House was forced to quell rumors that Kelly was ready to resign.

Kelly has come under fire recently over whether he knew about the allegations against Porter in the months before Porter's resignation last week.

Sorensen provided photos to the Washington Post that showed injuries he said she inflicted upon him during their fights, including bruises and scrapes.

In reality, he has struggled to hire high-caliber staff, with many experienced Washington operatives keeping their distance.

The White House response serves as a high-profile illustration of the obstacles many women face in speaking out about their abuse. "The president and chief of staff have full confidence in his abilities and his performance", said spokeswoman Sarah Sanders. He had denied the allegations and alleged that he "was the victim of repeated physical violence" during his marriage.

Trump's administration has been beset by scandal and staff departures.
