President Trump was unhappy with deputy press secretary Raj Shah on Thursday after Shah said the White House could have done a better job handling the situation surrounding abuse allegations against former staff secretary Rob Porter, according to CNN.  [2]

The Hill has reached out to Shah for comment.

Shah said during a press briefing on Thursday that the White House mishandled the reports on the abuse allegations against Portman, stemming from his two ex-wives.

“We all could have done better over the last few hours, the last few days, in dealing with this … but the emerging reports were not reflective of the individual we have come to know,” Shah said

The White House is facing backlash after Porter’s ex-wives, Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby, told the Daily Mail [3] that they were put through physical and emotional abuse during their marriages to Porter.
