She said such behavior was “shocking” and she hoped women “stand up and speak out against it”.

“And I hope that people who are involved in such shameful things think about their own daughters, their own mothers and their own close female relatives.

“Just imagine for a second ... can they let it happen to their daughters, to their sisters, to their mothers? I don’t think that they would accept that.”

The US President has been publicly accused of making unwanted sexual advances to 20 women.

The President’s spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has said all his accusers were lying.

Trump has also come under fire for comparing females to pigs and dogs and for saying women who have abortions should be “punished”.
