Donald Trump said on Saturday, Oct. 22, that he plans to sue the
women who accused him of s3xual misconduct following the
release of his now-infamous lewd 2005 video.
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,”
the Republican presidential candidate, 70, said during an
appearance in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. “Total fabrication. The
events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after
the election is over.”
“But a simple phone call placed to the biggest newspapers or
television networks gets them wall-to-wall coverage with virtually
no fact-checking whatsoever,” Trump continued.
The real estate mogul then pointed the finger at his opponent,
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton . “It was probably
the [Democratic National Committee] and Hillary’s campaign who
put forward these liars with their fabricated stories,” he said on
Saturday. “But we’ll probably find out later through litigation,
which we’re so looking forward to.”
The sexual misconduct allegations came after a 2005 recording of
Trump bragging about groping women during a conversation
with Billy Bush was released online byThe Washington Post in
early October. In the days following, at least 10 women came
forward with claims that Trump inappropriately touched them over
the past 30 years.
An 11th accuser is set to hold a press conference in Los Angeles
at 2 p.m. local time on Saturday with her attorney, Gloria Allred .
The news conference marks the first time the female accuser, who
has not yet been identified, will speak publicly about her
allegations against Trump.
The businessman has repeatedly denied the sexual misconduct
US weekly reportage.
