Hours after Barack Obama denounced Donald Trump’s treatment towards women at a Friday campaign rally, the Republican nominee warned the president that women could come forward with sexual harassment allegations about him.

“He’s talking about me like he knows me,” Trump told supporters in Greensboro, North Carolina. “I don’t know him, he doesn’t know me and why doesn’t some woman maybe come up and say what they say falsely about me, they could say about him. They could say it about anybody. They could say it about anybody. He better be careful because they could say it about anybody.”

As Trump spoke, a seventh women was holding a press conference accusing Trump of making inappropriate sexual advances towards her. Speaking with civil rights lawyer Gloria Allred, former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos alleged that Trump groped her body and forcibly kissed her at a Beverly Hills hotel in 2007.

These allegations come in the week after The Washington Post published a tape in which Trump can be heard on a hot mic boasting about grabbing women without their consent.

The president and his wife Michelle have denounced Trump’s comments and the allegations against him, which Trump has fervently denied, while campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

Trump spent 20 minutes at the Greensboro rally denouncing the media and the Clinton campaign for what he claims is a coordinated effort to destroy his reputation.

The real estate mogul called Obama “an incompetent” and criticized him for being “out campaigning all day long.”

“When you get hit, you hit back,” he said. “You don’t just say ‘I didn’t get hit, I didn’t get hit.’”

  2. Trump is truly a devil and evil man. America you got what you deserve if you elect him! He shows every day what he is capable of, believe him like he says.

  3. “Why aren’t women coming forward to claim President Obama grabbed their crotch?” Trump asks.

    President Obama has more respect for women, everyone, than you do.

  4. Is Trump playing some advanced form of Jeopardy with that question?!
