Doug Jones of Alabama, who recently beat Roy Moore in an election last week for the Senator for Alabama, said that he doesn’t think Donald Trump should resign for his past of alleged sexual harassment because people should learn to “move on.”
Jones spoke to Jake Tapper from CNN and said the allegations were made before the election and people had the opportunity to judge before they voted him into public office.
Jones said people need to “move on” and not get distracted by things of the past. We have more problems in the here and now to deal with.
Sen.-elect Doug Jones of Alabama doesn’t join the several Senate Democrats calling for President Trump to step down: “I think we need to move on and not get distracted by those issues … I don’t think the President ought to resign right now” #CNNSOTU https://t.co/EAY9mhL1QI

Jones explained the people of the United States of American have already made the judgment call as to whether Donald should be the president or not.
After the release of the 2005 Access Hollywood tapes, many people thought it would derail his campaign, and soon after their release, other women came forward and claimed the former-Republican candidate had either made a pass at them or harassed them.
However, on the other hand, many individuals thought the allegations were merely propositions, and not assault.
Last week, on the set of Megyn Kelly Today, three of the women to accuse Trump of misconduct renewed their allegations. Later in the day, another woman joined the set of the production with similar claims.
As for what is the difference between the allegations against Trump and Al Franken – who formerly resigned for sexual misconduct – Jones said the American public had chosen Trump as their president with the knowledge of the harassment allegations. The charges against Al Franken did not become public knowledge until after he was elected to office.
