Multiple women this week accused Trump of kissing or touching them without consent

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Saturday doubled down on claims about a “rigged election,” firing off a few early-morning tweets in which he accused the press and the Hillary Clinton campaign of trying to “poison the minds of the American Voter.”

The tweets advanced conspiracy claims Trump made this week, responding to accusations from multiple women who say he kissed and touched them inappropriately without consent. “It’s a lie, total lie, it’s fabrication,” Trump said during a speech on Friday. At a subsequent rally, Trump said he was the “victim of one of the great political smear campaigns in the history of our country.”

“100% fabricated and made-up charges, pushed strongly by the media and the Clinton Campaign, may poison the minds of the American Voter. FIX!” Trump tweeted early on Saturday.

“This election is being rigged by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, in order to elect Crooked Hillary!” he added about an hour later.

At rallies on Friday, Trump attacked the credibility and appearance of his accusers and railed against the press, blaming the accusations on a media conspiracy to bring down his campaign.

“Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted and should be in jail. Instead she is running for president in what looks like a rigged election,” Trump tweeted on Saturday.
