Sen. Franken calls out Trump during his resignation speech


WASHINGTON (KRON)–During his resignation speech, Sen. Al Franken specifically called out President Trump and his past, including the Access Hollywood tape.

“I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party. But this decision is not about me. It’s about the people of Minnesota,” Franken said.

Asked about this today, press secretary Sarah Sanders said the “President addressed the comments back during the campaign.”

“We feel strongly that the people of this country also addressed that when they elected Donald Trump to be President, and I addressed it several times from here and don’t have anything new to add,” Sanders said.
