Haley: Women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct should be heard

President Donald Trump's courageous decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is going to move the ball forward for the peace process in the Middle East, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said today amid protests in the region against the move.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard", Nikki Haley said on CBS's Face the Nation Sunday.

Prior to speaking specifically against the sexual misconduct of the current Oval Office occupant, Haley praised the bravery of the women who have spoken out. "I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up".

Asked whether Mr Trump's election settled the matter, Haley said: "That's for the people to decide".

She told CNN that Trump was the first United States president to have the "courage" to make a move that she said many Americans and others around the world supported.

'I am incredibly proud of the women who have come forward, ' she said. "So when we see it, we call them out on it".

In addition to the infamous 2005 "Access Hollywood" recording of Trump bragging about groping women that surfaced during the 2016 campaign, several women have accused Trump of sexual harassment.

When asked about Trump's accusers by Dickerson on Sunday, Haley said the women should be heard.

In recent months, however, there's a stark cultural shift in Hollywood, the media and politics where women accusers are believed and powerful men are suffering consequences.

Trump, a Republican, won the White House past year despite the election season release of a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape in which he described grabbing women's private parts, followed by accusations by several women of aggressive sexual misconduct.

"He had the courage to show it and I think a lot of Americans are having a huge sigh of relief because of it".

Accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior or misconduct have led to the resignations of three members of Congress this month.

Haley defended Trump's decision and said that such a reaction from the worldwide community was expected. "I am perfectly happy in NY".

While the latest move by the administration may impact the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, as Vice President Mike Pence prepares to visit the Middle East, Haley maintains that "both sides" will come to table and "decide what they think Jerusalem should look like".
