Less than 24 hours after Donald Trump held an impromptu press conference with three women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, the Republican presidential nominee slammed Hillary Clinton on Monday for not "trying to stop" her husband's "predatory behavior."
"Hillary Clinton systematically attacked and discredited the victims of Bill Clinton's sexual assault," Trump told the crowd at a rally in Pennsylvania. "These things aren't written by the media, but they're true.
"For decades, Hillary Clinton has been deeply familiar with her husband's predatory behavior and instead of trying to stop it, she made it possible for him to take advantage of even more women," Trump continued, naming several of Bill Clinton's accusers, including some of those he invited to Sunday's presidential debate. "She put even more women in harm's way and then she goes out and says she loves women … She's a total hypocrite."
Trump simultaneously criticized the media for not covering Clinton's role in discrediting her husband's accusers but spending the last "72 hours" blasting him for the sexually explicit comments he made about women in a 2005 videotape released Friday.
"There's nothing Hillary Clinton won't say or do to obtain power and it's about time people started to understand it," he charged. "But the hypocrites in the media don't want to talk about what Hillary Clinton has done to these women.
"The last 72 hours has framed what this election is all about," Trump told his supporters. "It's about the American people fighting back against corrupt politicians who don't care about anything but staying in power and keeping their donors.
"What I want to say to every American now, is that I accept the mantle of responsibility for us," Trump said as he concluded his remarks. "I will never stop fighting for you against the Washington establishment that has betrayed each and every one of you."
