Sexual assault allegations: Trump cries foul, says I'm a victim

WashingtonDC [United States], Oct.15 (ANI): As more women continue to come forward accusing Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment, the US Republican Presidential candidate has called himself a "victim" of it.

The CNN quoted Trump speaking at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina as saying ,"As you have seen, I am a victim of one of the great political smear campaigns in the history of our country. They are coming after me to try and destroy what is considered by even them the greatest movement in the history of our country."

Ignoring calls from his campaign advisers to focus on economic issues rather than responding to the allegations, Trump once again alleged that it's "all false stuff" and there is a "concerted effort" to take down his campaign.

While explaining to his supporters in Greensboro, he said, "My people always say, don't talk about it, talk about jobs, talk about the economy. But I feel I have to talk about it because you have to dispute when somebody says something."

Trump asked his supporters to boycott People magazine after its reporter wrote a story alleging Trump of kissing her without consent in 2005 when the two were alone for an interview at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Accusing Clinton of "character assassination," Trump said that it's her "specialty" to personally go after people.

"And her specialty, if you look over the years, has been character assassination and really personally just going after people, that's her specialty," he said.

"She's been doing it her whole career. The only force strong enough to smash Clinton's corrupt criminal syndicate is you, the American voter, November 8th." he added. (ANI)
