Anita Hill: Trump Language Attempts to Normalize Behavior

Anita Hill, one of the first women to publicly accuse a powerful man of sexual harassment, criticized President Donald Trump, saying his language “makes an attempt to normalize predatory behavior.”

Corporate leaders can learn an important lesson from Trump’s dismissal of accusations of sexual harassment, Hill said Wednesday at Bloomberg’s “Year Ahead” conference in New York. “If you have an individual -- whether it’s a president of the United States or somebody in your organization -- who feels entitled to do whatever they want to whomever they want, because they’re in that position of power, then that is your red flag.”
