Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told CBS “This Morning” that President Donald Trump should think about following the example set by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), who resigned this week after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment.
Noting that more than a dozen women have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct — and noting Trump’s own boasting of committing sexual assault on women in the infamous “Access Hollywood” video — Sanders said that Trump’s resignation is certainly something that should be on the table.
“We have a president of the United States who acknowledged on a tape widely seen all over the country that he’s assaulted women, so I would hope maybe the president of the United States might pay attention of what’s going on and also think about resigning,” Sanders said.
Sanders also said that the conversation about sexual harassment needs to extend beyond disgraced Hollywood moguls and politicians — and move into the less glamorous world of corporate America.
“What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated,” he said. “We need a cultural revolution in this country.”
