“Please understand that you will not intimidate me,” she said in a statement directed at the GOP presidential nominee Tuesday. "Others who are smarter, richer and more famous than you have tried and failed.

“You are nothing but a fourth rate politician and a fifth rate human being who is losing this election and lashing out at the women who accuse you. You are attempting to bash me because I represent three of the accusers.”

The billionaire also alleged Allred has been hunting for new accusers from the ranks of his employees and former pageant contestants.

“You have this phony lawyer Allred, who’s a third rate lawyer,” Trump said on WGIR’s “New Hampshire Today.”

“Gloria Allred is a big deal with Clinton,” he added of the Democratic nominee. "She works for the Clinton campaign.

“She’s sent letters to hundreds and hundreds of people, like people that work for me, sent letters to Miss Universe contestants. With all of the letters sent, nobody even responded. It is such a disgrace.”

Allred on Tuesday denied she works for the Clinton campaign and dared Trump to show evidence of his claims.

“I say to Mr. Trump, put up or shut up,” she said. "I challenge you to produce the hundreds of non-existent letters which you allege were sent. You will not be able to do it. There are no such letters to your employees or to Miss Universe contestants.”

A 2005 recording emerged earlier this month of Trump talking about how he could get away with groping and kissing women without consent because of his celebrity.

Eleven women have since come forward to accuse the businessman of past sexual misconduct.

Allred represents three of the accusers, with the most recent being adult film actress Jessica Drake.

The lawyer also works on behalf of yoga teacher and lifestyle coach Karena Virginia and Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump’s reality television show “The Apprentice.”

Allred has admitted she is a Clinton supporter and a delegate to the 2016 and 2008 Democratic conventions but says she has not coordinated with the Clinton campaign about her clients.
