Trump’s staff secretary Rob Porter has resigned after accusations of physical abuse by his ex-wives.
His second wife, Jennifer Willoughby, told reporters he was physically abusive during their marriage, which left her “walking on eggshells” to avoid his explosive anger.
Porter’s first wife, Colbie Holderness, confirmed she left him because “he was verbally, emotionally and physically abusive.”
His first wife, Holderness, shared photos of herself with a black eye she claims her ex-husband gave her.
Both women say they informed the FBI about Porter’s abuse during a background check before he started working at the White House.
Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly defended Porter after the women went public, saying the White House official was “a man of true integrity and honor, and I can’t say enough good things about him.”
