Presidential Campaign Stuck on Sexual Allegations
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Donald Trump has again brushed aside accusations of sexual misbehavior. On Friday, he suggested an accuser wasn't worthy of his attention. This came in at a campaign event in Greensboro, North Carolina on the same day that two more women came forward with years-old stories of unwanted sexual encounters with the Republican presidential nominee.
With eight women accusing Trump of unwanted kissing, groping or more, the New York businessman maintained his innocence and his denunciation of opponent Hillary Clinton and what he described as an international media conspiracy aimed at denying him the White House.
He declared at one point: "The only thing I can say is hopefully, hopefully, our patriotic movement will overcome this terrible deception."
Meanwhile, Democrat Hillary Clinton maintained a relatively low profile. But more Clinton campaign emails that were revealed by the WikiLeaks group raised new questions about the Democrat's past statements and actions. Emails released Friday showed her campaign had asked former President Bill Clinton to cancel a speech to an investment firm last year because of concerns that the Clintons might appear to be too cozy with Wall Street just as she was about to announce her candidacy.
