Trump threat­ens to sue ‘ly­ing’ women

7 Days in Dubai - - US ELECTION 2016 -

Don­ald Trump has vowed to sue ev­ery woman who has ac­cused him of sex­ual as­sault or other in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­haviour. He called them “liars” whose al­le­ga­tions he blamed Democrats for or­ches­trat­ing. Trump’s blunt threat of le­gal ac­tion eclipsed his planned fo­cus on se­ri­ous­minded pol­icy dur­ing a speech in Get­tys­burg on Satur­day. Though his cam­paign had billed the speech as a chance for Trump to lay out a to-do list for his first 100 days as pres­i­dent, he seemed un­able to re­strain him­self from re-lit­i­gat­ing griev­ances with Hillary Clin­ton, the me­dia and es­pe­cially the women who have come for­ward in re­cent days. “All of these liars will be sued once the elec­tion is over,” Trump said. He added later: “I look so for­ward to do­ing that.” Speak­ing to re­porters aboard her cam­paign plane be­tween ral­lies in Penn­syl­va­nia, Clin­ton said that, af­ter three de­bates, she was no longer think­ing about re­spond­ing to what Trump says any­more and would “let the Amer­i­can peo­ple de­cide what he of­fers and what we of­fer”.
