Trump's reaction to the controversy surrounding Weinstein comes after his son got into a contentious exchange about the issue with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter and on the one-year anniversary of the leaked Access Hollywood tape where Trump was heard talking to Billy Bush which was later referred to as the "Pussygate" scandal.
"My understanding is that Mr Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement".
In emails obtained by the Times, Bloom suggested to the Weinstein Company board that Weinstein's team could do "more and different reporting" in response to the newspaper's bombshell story, which reported the film executive had settled at least eight sexual harassment claims. "I'll stand up to him, but if I'm a 23-year-old in his workplace. of course, they're intimidated", she explained.
Her announcement came a day after a third of the all-male board of The Weinstein Co. resigned, as the remaining board members announced that they had hired an outside law firm to investigate the allegations and that Weinstein would take an indefinite leave of absence.
The scandal was pounced on by Republicans because Weinstein has been a major backer of Democrat candidates.
After the Times published its first report on the allegations against Weinstein, Bloom issued a statement Thursday saying that although Weinstein "denies numerous accusations as patently false", he would not "demean or attack" his accusers.
Trump was asked Saturday how the allegations against Weinstein differ from his own comments.
During an appearance Friday morning on Good Morning America, Bloom, who had been advising Weinstein on gender and power dynamics, said he had behaved inappropriately and agreed with an interviewer who characterized his reported actions as illegal.
On Friday night Emily Smith, the editor of U.S. website Page Six, revealed that she had spoken with Weinstein on Thursday. Shortly after that story published, Weinstein took a leave of absence from TWC.
On Saturday, Sivan tweeted that she was only able to come forward now about the incident "because of women far braver than me". "Georgina will be kicking my ass to be a better human being and to apologise to people for my bad behaviour, to say I'm sorry, and to absolutely mean it".
Bloom has been under heavy scrutiny since deciding to represent a man accused of sexual harassment. when she nearly always represents victims.
