Donald Trump called President Bill Clinton a “predator” and bashed Hillary Clinton for intimidating his victims during a campaign rally on Monday in Ambridge, Pennsylvania — less than 24 hours after holding a press conference with several women who accuse Clinton of sexual harassment and assault.
“Bill Clinton was the wors[t] abuser of women ever to sit in the Oval Office. He was a predator,” Trump jabbed, alleging that Hillary Clinton would intimidate his victims.
Trump’s statements come after he held a press conference with Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, and Paula Jones, who all accuse Bill Clinton of sexual harassment and assault, as well as Kathy Shelton, who was raped as a 12-year-old. Hillary Clinton defended her alleged rapist. Trump also had the women sit in the audience at Sunday night’s presidential debate in St. Louis, Missouri.
Trump listed a handful of women who allege wrongdoing by the former president while speaking to supporters at the Ambridge Area Senior High School in Pennsylvania Monday afternoon.
Trump alleged that his opponent Hillary Clinton is a hypocrite for campaigning for women because “instead of trying to stop [her husband], she made it possible for him to take advantage of even more women.”
Trump specifically highlighted Shelton’s case in which Clinton defended the accused. “Desperate to win her case, Hillary Clinton blamed the 12-year-old victim,” the Republican nominee declared.
“As the lawyer for the rapist, Hillary Clinton said the little girl was emotionaly unstable” and would seek older men, Trump alleged, adding that Clinton “destroyed her life.”
He referenced an audio recording that surfaced showing Clinton laughing about getting the accused rapist released. “There’s nothing Hillary Clinton won’t do or say to obtain power and it’s about time people started to understand it.”
