Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) urged President Trump to consider resigning over the sexual misconduct allegations brought up against him during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“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 on “CBS This Morning,” referring to the “Access Hollywood” tape that was leaked to The Washington Post late last year.

“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. We need a cultural revolution in this country,” he said.
The allegations against Trump have been made by at least 13 women and range from non-consensual groping and kissing to outright sexual assault.
Many of Trump’s accusers came forward last October following the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy” without their consent because he is famous.
