Nikki Haley, the us ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that the women who have accused President Trump of sexual misconduct "should be heard", a break from the administration's assertions that the allegations have no merit and should be dismissed.
While detractors claim this hurts his chances at fostering a peace agreement between the Palestinian Authority and Israel, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said she believes it will "move the ball forward".
When asked if Mr. Trump's move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital and begin the early stages of moving the USA embassy in Israel to the city would further inflame tensions and disrupt work on the peace process, Haley said, "I think that when you recognize the truth, when both parties recognize reality, peace comes".
When asked what she thinks of the "cultural shift" taking place in the U.S., Haley said she is "incredibly proud of the women who have come forward".
Before Mr Trump won the 2016 presidential election, multiple women accused him of unwanted kissing or groping. Asked about the allegations made against Mr Trump, she said: "Women who accuse anyone should be heard". Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has confirmed that to be the White House's official position.More news: Comedian Hannibal Buress arrested in Miami

Three members of Congress said last week that they will resign over misconduct allegations. "They should be heard and they should be dealt with, and I think we heard them prior to the election", said Haley, a Republican.
"He had the courage to show it and I think a lot of Americans are having a huge sigh of relief because of it. So when we see it, we call them out on it".
While Senate Republicans have distanced themselves from Mr Moore, the President has backed the embattled Republican and urged voters to choose him over Democrat Doug Jones.
Reuters has not independently verified the accusations, which Mr Moore, a conservative Christian, has denied.
Haley noted at the beginning of the interview that previous presidents didn't have the courage to listen to the will of the American people but Trump did. Mr Moore and his campaign have vociferously rejected those allegations as politically motivated falsehoods, saying: "I have never engaged in sexual misconduct".
