President Donald Trump was unaware a former top aide had been accused of domestic abuse and didn’t know the FBI had learned of the allegations during a routine background check, a White House spokesman said Thursday.

The senior White House aide, Rob Porter, resigned Wednesday amid reports that he assaulted his two ex-wives. One former wife shared a photo of a black eye she claims was the result of a punch.

“The allegations against Rob Porter are serious and deeply troubling,” said White House spokesman Raj Shah.
