PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley is calling for President Donald Trump to resign amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Merkley first made the comment during an interview Thursday on MSNBC, then tweeted:

“Enough is enough. Roy Moore should drop out of the Alabama senate race right now. President Donald Trump should also resign with his track record of horrific conduct towards more than 17 women.”

 

Merkley joins Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in calling for Trump to resign.

Both President Trump and Moore have denied all the allegations made against them.
