Donald Trump spent the majority of his campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina combatting what he calls “phony accusers” — referencing several women who have accused him of groping and sexually assaulting them.
“It’s a phony deal,” Trump said, referencing the multiple news stories that have surfaced with women accusing him of the misconduct. “I have no idea who these women are.”
“The stories are total fiction,” he responded, during the rally at the White Oak Amphitheater, adding, “100 percent made up.”
The Republican nominee said his people — most likely referencing his advisors — want him to talk about jobs instead of the allegations, “but I feel I have to talk about it because you have to dispute when somebody says something.”
Trump accused the media of covering up for his opponent Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“The media is covering up for the Clintons,” he alleged, referencing multiple controversial emails revealed from WikiLeaks throughout this week. “The WikiLeaks documents show how the media conspires and collaborates.”
“What a rigged system, folks!” he exclaimed. “The corrupt media is trying to do everything in their power to stop our movement. They don’t want this happening.”
“This whole election is being rigged,” he stressed. “These lies spread by the media without witnesses…are poisoning the minds of the electorate.”
According to Right Side Broadcasting Network, there were more than 7,000 people who gathered to see the GOP nominee in Greensboro Friday afternoon. He has another campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina Friday night.
