Trump On First 100 Days: I Will Sue ‘Liars’ Who Accused Me Of Assault

Donald Trump declared that he was “looking forward” to suing every woman who has accused him of groping and assault during a Saturday speech laying out his plan for the first 100 days of his presidency.

“All of these liars will be sued after the election,” Trump claimed, alleging that the 10 women who have so far accused him of unwanted advances came forward “to hurt my campaign.”

The Trump team billed the speech, held in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s address, as an opportunity to lay out his top priorities.

Accusing the media and Clinton campaign of recruiting his accusers to smear his reputation, Trump said the stories of “these liars” were told with “virtually no fact checking whatsoever.”

“We’ll find out about their involvement at a later date through litigation,” Trump charged.

“I’m looking so forward to doing that,” the Republican nominee told the approving crowd.

A number of women went public with stories of Trump groping their body without consent, forcibly kissing them, and engaging in other inappropriate behavior in the days after he declared at the second presidential debate that he had never sexually assaulted anyone. The denial came after a recording leaked in which Trump boasted about using his celebrity status to “do anything” he wanted to women, including grabbing them “by the pussy.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.
