Trump declares April sexual assault prevention month

Source: The Hill




BY JOSH DELK - 03/30/18 06:01 PM EDT

President Trump on Friday issued an official proclamation observing April as National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.

In a statement, Trump encouraged the nation to "remain steadfast" in working to prevent sexual crimes and reaffirmed his administration's commitment to empowering individuals to speak out in their communities and workplaces against perpetrators.

"Sexual assault crimes remain tragically common in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability. These heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately: in intimate relationships, in public spaces, and in the workplace," Trump said.

The longstanding observation of the month, which often sees outreach by public health organizations and community crisis centers nationwide, comes this year following a wave of newly-empowered women leveling allegations of sexual misconduct and assault against high-profile men in media, entertainment and politics in recent months.

i've been using it a lot for that which expresses a high degree of cynicism, hypocrisy, and impossibly poor taste. it won't catch on if i'm the only one using it.

6. Should the author have pointed to the allegations?

It's certainly worth noting that 1) Trump would never have said that quote, and 2) he's been accused by more than a dozen women of just this.

That it also happens to be the name of the month was purely coincidental. Next month is Patricia sexual assault prevention month. Itís a different name each month.
