Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump met with several women who’ve accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault Sunday ahead of the second US presidential debate.
The businessman met with Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathy Shelton, a woman whose rapist at the age of 12 was successfully defended by Hillary Clinton during her early years as a lawyer.
I don’t care if Trump said gross things. I care that Hillary Clinton lied, terrorized, & mocked me, defending my rapist.

At one point a reporter who attempts to ask Trump about recent controversial comments is deflected by Paula Jones.
“Why did you say you touch women without their consent, Mr Trump?” the reporter asks.
“Why don’t y’all go ask Bill Clinton that?” Paula Jones shot back. “Why don’t you go ask Bill Clinton that? Ask Hillary as well.”

According to Fox Business News, reporters were under the impression they were going to meet Trump for a pre-debate press conference, but instead walked in on the women tied to the Clintons’ pasts.
