Trump threatens to sue ‘lying’ women
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”.
