Bernie Sanders: Trump Should 'Think About Resigning'

Bernie Sanders Trump should consider resignation over sexual misconduct allegations

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont called for President Donald Trump to consider "resigning" from his elected position due to the numerous sexual misconduct claims that have been against him - as well as his admission of such actions in the Access Hollywood tape. "We need a cultural revolution in this country", said Sanders.

While Sen. Sanders stated that allegations against powerful politicians and celebrities are troubling, he is also anxious about everyday women in restaurants and offices across the country who face sexual harassment and assault from employers who are not famous.

Shortly after Franken's announcement, Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, tweeted he hopes Trump takes notice of the announcement. Franken groping a sleeping female reporter surfaced, Sen.

Franken announced Thursday in a speech on the Senate floor that he will resign from his post within the next few weeks.

But a fresh allegation on Wednesday unleashed a torrent of Democratic demands that Franken step aside, with women senators leading the chorus.

Although he's always been critical of Trump, it's the first time Sanders has outright mentioned the president should resign. Franken isn't the only politician with a tainted record.

"I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party", he said, pointing his finger towards US President Donald Trump and Republican Senate Candidate for Alabama, Roy Moore.
