America's first President who publicly stated how he likes to "grab em by the pu**y" is now making a month exclusively dedicated to sexual assault awareness and prevention.

President Donald Trump issued a proclamation Friday designating April as National Sexual Assault Awareness month.

"Sexual assault crimes remain tragically common in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability", said a proclamation from Trump released by the White House. "Too often, however, the victims of assault remain silent", Trump's 2018 proclamation continued.

"They may fear retribution from their offender, lack faith in the justice system, or have difficulty confronting the pain associated with the traumatic experience".

"We must respond to sexual assault by identifying and holding perpetrators accountable".

Trump, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by almost two dozen women, said in a presidential proclamation that sex crimes remain "tragically common in our society" - and "offenders too often evade accountability".

Together, during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we recommit ourselves to doing our part to help stop sexual violence. "This April, we reflect on the survivors, silence breakers and supporters who have spoken out during this consequential year, and we invite all voices to join us as we work toward changing the culture across all communities and ending sexual violence once and for all".

It comes amid a national debate surrounding the issue, including criticisms against President Trump.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

Rallies in more than 250 United States cities saw demonstrators denounce Mr Trump's views on immigration, abortion, LGBT and women's rights on the anniversary of his inauguration.

At least 20 women have publicly accused Trump of engaging in sexual assault or harassment prior to becoming president.

The campaign also saw the leak of a 2005 audio recording from television show "Access Hollywood" where Trump claimed he can "do anything to women".
