Donald Trump on Saturday vowed to sue the women who have come forward to level allegations of sexual misconduct against him, saying they concocted fabricated stories to help Hillary Clinton.

In a major speech in Gettysburg, Pa., about his plans for his first 100 days in office, Trump railed against the media for seeking to concentrate power through mergers and for colluding with his accusers to align against his campaign.

“Total fabrication, the events never happened — never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

He also tied the women to an undercover video that showed Democratic operatives discussing how to get Trump supporters riled up at his rallies.

“Just like we found out about these paid violent protesters, it was probably the DNC and the Clinton campaign that put forward these liars with their fabricated stories,” he said. 

“But we’ll find out about their involvement at a later date through litigation. And I look so forward to doing that.”

Trump last week threatened to sue the New York Times for reporting the accounts of two of the nearly dozen women who have leveled allegations against him. His lawyers sent the Times a letter demanding that they retract their “libelous” article.

An attorney for the paper responded with a letter of his own, saying that he would welcome a lawsuit and dispelling the accusation of libel.

“Multiple women not mentioned in our article have publicly come forward to report on Mr. Trump’s unwanted advances,” wrote attorney Marc Kasowitz. 

“Nothing in our article has had the slightest effect on the reputation that Mr. Trump, through his own words and actions, has already created for himself.”

Trump has not yet filed the promised lawsuit against the Times. A campaign spokesman on Saturday said Trump plans to sue the paper after the election, as he promised to do with his accusers Saturday.
