Republican nominee Donald Trump vowed Saturday in Gettysburg, Pa. that he would sue all of the women who accused him of sexual assault following the election.
“All of these liars will be sued once the election is over,” Trump said, adding, “I look so forward to doing that.”
The announcement comes in response to the newest allegation from adult film star Jessica Drake that Trump offered her $10,000 for sex 10 years ago. Drake said that she met the Republican presidential nominee at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, during which the billionaire kissed her and ultimately offered her money and the use of his private jet in exchange for some alone time.
Drake is the 11th woman to accuse Trump of unwanted sexual advances since a 2005 recording resurfaced of a lewd conversation between Trump and TV personality Billy Bush. The Trump campaign has denied all allegations, telling Fox News that “Mr. Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her.”
The presidential nominee’s remarks on Saturday follow a number of rebuttals. Trump previously insisted to a crowd in North Carolina, “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you.” He has also accused democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee of prompting the dozen or so women to come forward against him.
Trump’s remarks on Saturday kicked off an otherwise policy-oriented speech. Besides suing his accusers, Trump would also like to lift restrictions on domestic energy production, place a freeze on hiring new federal workers, and renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement in his first 100 days as president.
“This is my pledge to you, and if we follow these steps, we will once again have a government of, by, and for the people,” Trump said.
Clinton did not respond to Trump’s remarks, telling reporters that she was done responding to her Republican opponent’s comments in the scant time remaining before election day, according to the Associated Press.
Clinton currently has a comfortable lead over her opponent, polling 47.9 to Trump’s 42 points.
