Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump went on the attack on Thursday and defended himself against 2 new sexual assault allegations that threaten to further damage his image with women just under 30 days before the presidential election.
Speaking at a rally in Florida on Thursday, Trump called the sexual assault accusations by 2 women that were recently published in a Wednesday article from the New York Times “total fabrication.”
Trump insisted that the Clintons know the fresh inappropriate conduct claims involving him are untrue yet he offered little input about he arrived at that conclusion.
“These vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false. And the Clinton’s know it and they know it very well” Trump said.
Trump questioned the credibility of his accusers who claim that he groped them several years ago.
“You take a look at these people, you study these people, and you’ll understand also” Trump said.
Trump reported he will release “evidence” showing that the two sexual assault allegations are false.
Trailing In Polls
Trump has lost some ground to Clinton in the polls since the first debate on September 26th.
According to a Real Clear Politics average of major election polls from 10/3 – 10/12, Clinton has a + 6.7 percent advantage over Trump (48.1 percent to 41.4 percent).
The third and final debate takes place at the University of Nevada Las Vegas on October 19th.
Trump has come under fire following a Washington Post leaked video last Friday that captured a 2005 audio recorded conversation he had with Access Hollywood co-host Bill Bush in which he boasted about how he gropes women and attempted to seduce a married woman.
At the Florida rally on Thursday, in typical Trump fashion, he blasted the media and accused them of colluding with Clinton to help her win the election.
Trump also threatened to sue the New York Times over the Wednesday article that contained two separate disclosures from Jessica Leeds, a woman who claims Trump grabbed her breasts and attempted to put his hand up her skirt while they traveled next to each other on a plane over three decades ago.
The second disclosure came from Rachel Crooks, a woman who worked at Trump Tower, and alleges Donald Trump kissed her outside of an elevator after they met.
