President Trump was blunt about the sexual misconduct allegations made against himself and his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a press conference in New York Wednesday. Multiple allegations have been made against Kavanaugh of sexual assault as his nomination nears a vote.

The MSNBC White House reporter asked if Trump’s “personal experience being accused” has affected his approach to the current allegations against Kavanaugh.

Trump said “I’ve been accused. False accusations. I’ve been accused, and I was accused by I believe it was four women –Who got paid? Excuse me. Who got paid? I was accused by four or five women who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me.”

Multiple women were paid to make false allegations against Trump in the 2016 election.

“We caught them, and the mainstream media refused to put it on television,” Trump said. “They refused to even write about it — They made false statements about me. Knowing they were false. I never met them. I never met these people. What do they do? They took money in order to say bad things.”

Trump then turned his ire on the media in the room, calling the reporters and the accusers “fake.”

“They are fake news,” Trump said,  “And you know what? The New York Times would not report that this story was fake.”

“That’s why, people know that a lot of the news is fake and a lot of the people sitting here are fake. But 20% of them are wonderful, okay?” Trump said to laughs.
