Trump then referred to a New York Times front page story from earlier this year that delved into the GOP nominee's past treatment of women he dated or employed. The real estate mogul has condemned that story and one of his former girlfriends, who was at the center of the story, dismissed the portrayal of her and her relationship with Trump.

“Well, you know the New York Times wrote a story about me and women and it turned out that it was a false story and honestly we’re going to take that up with them at a little bit later date,” Trump said Monday.

“It was disgraceful. They are so dishonest – I’ll tell you what. There is nobody that respects women more than Donald Trump,” he continued. “That I can tell you. I’ll help women because we have the women’s health problems. We have a lot of problems and I will help a lot more than Hillary can. That I can tell you.”

The first presidential debate of the general election will be held next Monday at Hofstra University on Long Island, N.Y.

Trump didn’t offer much speculation of what the debate will look like, but noted he intends to treat Clinton with respect.

“If she treats me with respect, I will treat her with respect. It really depends,” Trump said.

“People ask me that question, ‘Oh, you’re going to go out there and do this and that,’” he added. “I really don’t know that. You’re going to have to feel it out when you’re out there. She’s got to treat me with respect. I’m going to treat her with respect. I’d like to start off by saying that because that would be my intention.”
