Hillary Clinton tells of shock over Harvey Weinstein allegations
Former presidential candidate calls for end to tolerance of sexist activities – saying there is a ‘sexual assaulter’ in Oval Office
Hillary Clinton has said she was shocked and appalled by the revelations about the sexual predatory activities of the Hollywood mogul and Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein. Calling for an end to tolerance of such sexist activities, she added that Donald Trump was a self-confessed sexual assaulter.
Clinton is in Britain to promote her book What Happened, the memoir of her failed attempt to win the 2016 presidential election. Describing the stories about Weinstein as “disgusting and heartbreaking”, she also told BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show: “I really commend the women who have been willing to come forward and tell their stories.”
