President Trump proclaimed Friday that April will be National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.
“Sexual assault crimes remain tragically common in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability,” Trump said in a proclamation shared by the office of the White House press secretary. “These heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately: in intimate relationships, in public spaces, and in the workplace.”
Trump said his administration is committed to raising awareness about sexual violence and spoke of the importance of enabling victims to feel secure enough to reach out to law enforcement and open up to friends and family.
Trump’s proclamation was met with contempt by some who noted that he has been accused by several women over the years for sexual assault and misconduct and has faced controversy for lewd comments he has made about certain women.
