Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has used a major policy address to threaten lawsuits against “every woman” who has accused him of sexual misconduct.
Speaking to supporters Saturday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Trump called his accusers “liars” running a smear Campaign
against him on behalf of the Democrats.
The Trump campaign had billed the speech as an opportunity for the candidate to lay out the things he would do in his 100 days as president. However, it did not take long for the real estate tycoon to address the accusations against him.
"All of these liars will be sued once the election is over," Trump said at the rally. "I look so forward to doing that," he added later in his speech.
The threat came as an adult film star became the 11th woman accusing Trump of making unwelcome sexual advances against her.
Jessica Drake said during a press conference on Saturday that after meeting Trump at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in 2006, she was offered $10,000 to come to his suite in a hotel.
Drake alleged that the two first met while at the golf course and took a walk together. she said Trump later "grabbed" and kissed her without her permission.
"After I returned to my room, I received a call from a man calling on Donald's behalf. He said, Donald wanted me to come back upstairs to his suite. I indicated I did not wish to return. Then Donald called, asking me to come to his suite and have dinner with him. He also invited me to a party; I declined," Drake said.
Trump’s campaign rejected her allegations as “totally false and ridiculous.”
“This is just another attempt by the Clinton campaign to defame a candidate who just today is number one in three different polls,” it said in its statement.
At the Gettysburg rally, Trump also accused the “dishonest mainstream media” of being a major part of “this corruption.”
“They lie and fabricate stories to make a candidate that is not their preferred choice look as bad and even dangerous as possible. At my rallies, they never show or talk about the massive crowd size and try to diminish all of our events,” the candidate said.
After spending about 13 minutes attacking his accusers, Trump went over a to-do list for his 100 days in office.
Nearly all were things that Trump has already promised to do, including putting term limits in Congress, renegotiating trade deals, overwriting every “unconstitutional” executive action or order by President Barack Obama, and immigration reform.
