WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Trump says he has evidence to disprove allegations of sexual assault, and he will release the evidence at an “appropriate time”

The Republican nominee said on Twitter that a New York Times story about two women who allege he groped them years ago is “phony” and a “total fabrication.” Trump is also going after a People Magazine writer who alleges Trump pinned her against a wall and kissed her without consent in 2005.

Trump says the allegations of sexual assault are a “coordinated, vicious attack” from the media and the Clinton campaign.

He said the claims “are totally and absolutely false,” and he called them “pure fiction and outright lies.”
