"We have a president of the United States who acknowledged on a tape widely seen all over the country that he's assaulted women, so I would hope maybe the president of the United States might pay attention of what's going on and also think about resigning", Sanders said on "CBS This Morning", referring to the "Access Hollywood" tape that emerged a year ago.

Sanders made the comments Thursday on "CBS This Morning", while discussing why he thought Sen.

Al Franken causing the Minnesota lawmaker to resign while Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, also accused of sexual harassment, may be elected.

"What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated". "So I would hope that maybe the president of the United States might pay attention to what's going on and also think about resigning".

But a fresh allegation on Wednesday unleashed a torrent of Democratic demands that Franken step aside, with women senators leading the chorus.

Franken called out Trump in his remarks, saying "there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office". "It's like a magnet". Grab them by the p***y.

The allegations against Trump have been made by 13 women and range from non-consensual groping and kissing to outright sexual assault. Trump denied all of the allegations and asserted that he never committed the acts he described to Bush.

Sanders said there is a need for a "cultural revolution" in how women are treated across the country.
