Trump campaign created own rules on sexual harassment

FILE - In this Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017 file photo, President Donald Trump walks away from the podium after speaking in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House, in Washington. Trump is not usually one to sit out a political feeding frenzy. But now he's selectively aiming his Twitter guns at those under scrutiny for sexual misconduct. He's been largely silent about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore but hasn't hesitated to skewer Democratic Sen. Al Franken. It's a tricky matter for Trump: During the campaign, more than a dozen women stepped up to accuse him of sexual misconduct, and he was seen bragging in an old video about groping and kissing women.
