Trump Claims Female Support as 11th Woman Claims Sexual Assault

HeadlineOct 24, 2016

In election news, Donald Trump arrived in Florida on Sunday for a three-day trip. Trump likely needs to win Florida’s 29 Electoral College votes in order to have any hope of winning the White House. At a rally in Naples, Trump blasted polls showing he’s doing poorly among women voters.

Donald Trump: “I really think those polls are very inaccurate when it comes to women. I think we’re doing better with women than with men, frankly. So we’re setting records with men, but I want to set records with women, to me. And I hate to tell the men this, but if I could swap, I’d swap you out so fast.”

Trump’s comments came after another woman came forward Saturday accusing Trump of inappropriate sexual behavior. Adult film star Jessica Drake says Trump grabbed her in a hug and kissed her without permission, and later offered her $10,000 and use of his private jet if she would join Trump for dinner in his suite. Drake is the 11th woman to accuse Trump of unwanted sexual advances since an “Access Hollywood” tape surfaced showing Trump boasted of sexually assaulting women.
