Trump: Groping Claims ‘’Absolutely False’’

Donald Trump has rejected a slew of accusations of sexual misconduct, telling supporters in Florida they are “totally and absolutely false”.

The Republican presidential nominee said the women making the allegations were “horrible liars” and the media was colluding with rival Hillary Clinton.

Several women say he groped them or forcibly kissed them.

First Lady Michelle Obama earlier said Trump’s boasts about groping women were “shocking and demeaning”.

“Leaders should meet a basic standard of human decency,” she said during a campaign appearance in New Hampshire.

Seeing Trump make lewd comments about women, on a video leaked last week to the ‘Washington Post’, “has shaken me to my core in a way that I cannot have predicted,” Mrs Obama said, her voice cracking with emotion.

Two women told the ‘New York Times’ that the Republican presidential candidate groped or kissed them.

A ‘People’ magazine reporter also said she was forcibly kissed, while another woman said Trump grabbed her bottom.

Making his first public appearance since the allegations were made, he told a rally in West Palm Beach these stories were “a conspiracy against the American people” by the political and media establishment.

The media, he said, “will seek to destroy your career and your family”.

Asked during last Sunday’s televised presidential debate whether he had kissed or groped women without their consent, Trump said: “No, I have not”, and stressed that he respected women.

Many of the women said Trump’s denial during the second presidential debate prompted them to come forward.

Last week’s emergence of a video tape in which Trump boasts that his fame means he can “do anything” to women has sparked a crisis that has engulfed his campaign, reports the BBC.

Dozens of Republicans have said they can no longer back him and he has fallen behind Mrs Clinton in national and state polls.
