At a rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Saturday, Donald Trump vowed to sue all of the women who have come forward to accuse him of sexual advances in the past few weeks.
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,” Trump said, adding, “Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never.” “All of these liars will be sued after the election is over,” Trump said to applause and cheers from the audience.
A bit later in the speech Trump added, “It was probably the DNC and the Clinton campaign that put forward these liars with their fabricated stories, but we’ll find out about their involvement at a later date through litigation, and I look so forward to doing that.”
Trump’s statement about suing his accusers was actually part of a longer segment of his speech in which he argued that the media was too powerful. He cited the attempt by AT&T to buy Time Warner saying it was, “a deal we would not approve in my administration because it’s too much concentration of power in the hands of too few.” After listing a couple of similar examples Trump added, “Deals like this destroy democracy.” He connected the power of the media to the accusations made against him saying, “A simple phone call placed to the biggest newspapers or television networks gets them wall-to-wall coverage with virtually no fact-checking whatsoever.”
