Harvey Weinstein’s sex crimes conviction was a “great victory” for women, US President Donald Trump said Tuesday — without acknowledging the numerous accusations of sexual misconduct he has faced.
The disgraced Hollywood movie producer was found guilty on Monday of rape and sexual assault in a verdict hailed as a historic landmark by the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct.
“From the standpoint of women, I think it was a great thing,” Trump said at a news conference in India.
“It was a great victory. And sends a very strong message, very, very strong message,” he added.
