President Donald Trump is reportedly considering bringing back his former White House staff secretary Rob Porter after he resigned following revelations he had allegedly abused his ex-wives. Trump, however, has made it clear that Porter was an asset in building the staff structure in the West Wing, a White House official told the Times. Sources told the Times that Trump considers Porter to be one of those people.

Porter left the White House after The Daily Mail published a story in which his two ex-wives accused him of physical and emotional abuse.

The president reportedly had discussions with Porter about trade and tariffs on certain goods - a measure Trump recently introduced and worked on together with the official before his departure.

The White House said Monday that President Donald Trump "doesn't believe any of these accusations" made by adult film actress Stormy Daniels that she had a one-night affair with the future USA leader in 2006 and five years later was threatened to keep quiet about their alleged liaison. White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, who was romantically involved with Porter, resigned in late February. What better message to send than, "Okay ladies, we know he likes to beat you up, but I like him".

Police question Netanyahu for a second time over telecom corruption case
A police spokesman and a lawyer for the Netanyahu family have declined comment. It was the first time Yair Netanyahu had been questioned, media reports said.

Representatives of Trump have dismissed the allegations of McDougal and Daniels, saying that the affairs never happened and that Trump had no knowledge of any payments. He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent'.

Going from Mickey Mouse to Sarah Huckabee Sanders is quite the journey, but one White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters says she's prepared for.

The allegations delayed Porter's ability to get permanent clearance.

The controversy embroiled the White House given senior White House aides - including chief of staff John Kelly - were supposedly made aware of the allegations against Porter in November after the Federal Bureau of Investigation learned about them during a background check. Porter was on an interim clearance for his entire tenure, as his alleged history of domestic abuse stalled his application and raised red flags from the White House personnel office.
