Donald Trump defended Fox News chairman Roger Ailes against allegations of sexual harassment by former anchor Gretchen Carlson in a Thursday interview with the Washington Examiner.
Carlson filed a lawsuit against Ailes last week in which she alleged that she was fired after rebuffing his advances for months. Since then, more women have come forward with accounts of harassment, all of which Ailes has denied.
“He is a great guy,” Trump tweeted in response. “His word is always good!”
