“Those stories are nonexistent stories,” he told host Mike Gallagher on his radio show Tuesday. "They don’t exist. The stories are made up. They’re totally fabricated."
“They were made up for, I don’t know, fame, or Clinton got them to do it, or for whatever reason, you know, the women that came out,” the Republican presidential nominee said.
“They have people from 20 years ago coming out and telling stories about me. Many of them have already been debunked. It’s really an incredible thing that something like that happened.”
Trump added that he dislikes seeing his wife, Melania Trump, address the accusations against him.
“Well, I don’t like having to have my wife having to answer questions about stories that don’t exist. She understands that they don’t exist.”
A 2005 audio recording emerged earlier this month of Donald Trump talking obscenely about groping women with former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush. Trump denied that he had ever groped a woman when confronted with his words at the second presidential debate of 2016. But multiple women have since accused the billionaire of kissing or touching them without permission in the past.
Melania Trump on late Monday defended her husband, adding that she rejects the media frenzy surrounding the accusations.
“I was not surprised that the tape came out,” she told host Anderson Cooper on CNN. "Everything was organized. It was the media; it was NBC; it was ‘Access Hollywood’; it was left-wing media.
“They play, they play, they play. It was hour after hour bashing him. They want to influence the American people how to vote. And they’re influencing in the wrong way.”
Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has seized on the numerous allegations as proof that Donald Trump lacks the moral character for the presidency.
