>> We are not holding our President accountable for what he is and who he is.>> Several women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct before being elected renewed their public demands for action Monday as the #metoo movement pointed itself at the White House.>> I have a new dream now, that this man will be held accountable for his actions.
00:00:22
And that future generations of women can fulfill their dreams without worry of anyone treating them like they are less than, because they're a woman.>> The women Samantha Holvey, Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks have all come forward before with their allegations, which Trump denies. And Reuters has not independently confirmed their claims.
00:00:43
But after the fall of high profile men such as Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and Senator Al Franken, Trumps detractors are reviving calls for Trump to face a public reckoning. The women expressed outrage that Trump has avoided the fates of other famous men despite 16 separate allegations and the notorious Access Hollywood tape.
00:01:02
Rachel Crooks claims, Trump forcibly kissed her when she worked as a receptionist at Trump tower.>> In an objective setting without question, a person with this record would have entered the graveyard of political aspirations never to return. Yet here we are with that man as President.>> The women appeared with filmmaker, Robert Greenwald, who unveiled a short documentary on the allegations.
00:01:24
>> His actions are a huge testament to his character.>> White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that the White House could produce eye witness reports refuting the allegations.>> A mere allegation shouldn't determine the course. And, in this case, the President has denied any of these allegations as have eye witnesses.
00:01:42
And several reports have shown those eyewitnesses also back up the President's claim in this process.>> But on Sunday, Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said quote, any woman who has felt violated or mistreated, quote, should be heard, even those accusing Trump. Trump's accusers are seeking a congressional investigation into his conduct.
