It comes after two senior members of his team resigned over domestic abuse allegations in the space of four days.

The US President tweeted on Saturday: “People’s 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?”
