After coming under national fire on charges of sexual misconduct, Republican President Donald Trump has vowed to sue all the women who have accused him of inappropriate behaviour.
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over,” Trump said at a rally inin Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Asserting that all the women who had accused him were getting major media attention with a simple phone call and no fact-checking, Trump stated that all the charges against him were blatant lies, CNN reports.
In the last two weeks, at least 10 women have come forward accusing Trump of inappropriately touching them. Their allegations came after a 2005 videotape surfaced of Trump bragging about being able to grope women and get away with it.
Trump further went on to suggest that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was behind the women’s allegations.
“It was probably the (Democratic National Committee) and Hillary’s campaign who put forward these liars with their fabricated stories, but we’ll probably find out later through litigation, which we’re so looking forward to,” he said.
Cathy Heller, who alleged last week that Trump kissed her without her permission in Florida 20 years ago, told CNN, “I hope the threats do not deter others who have something to say.” Temple Taggart, who has also accused Trump of kissing her without her consent, told CNN she wasn’t surprised by Trump’s threat.
