3 women charged Donald Trump with sexual misconduct, and this was POTUS's answer!
Trump took to Twitter to lash out against the accusations a day after three women who had previously accused him of sexual harassment shared their stories on a TV show.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday rejected the accusations made against him of sexual misconduct and said that women were "fabricating stories" against him. Trump said that he is the target of “false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met.”
Trump took to Twitter to lash out against the accusations a day after three women who had previously accused him of sexual harassment shared their stories on “Megyn Kelly Today.”
The Republican President said that Democrats "have been unable to show any collusion with Russia” and now are “moving on” to these allegations. He also called the women's stories "FAKE NEWS!"
Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia - so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met.

The three women — Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey, and Rachel Crooks — on Monday also urged the Congress to investigate Trump's behavior. Holvey is a former beauty queen, while Crooks is a former receptionist at Trump Tower and Leeds says she met Trump on a flight.
"This was serial misconduct and perversion on the part of Mr. Trump. Unfortunately, this behavior isn't rare in our society, and people of all backgrounds can be victims. The only reason I am here today is that this offender is now the President of our country," said Crooks, a former Bayrock Group receptionist who accused Trump of kissing her on the mouth without her consent in 2005, according to CNN.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also dismissed the allegations laid against Trump and on Monday said that there were a number of eyewitnesses who negate the accusers' stories. Huckabee Sanders said that she would provide a list of those eyewitnesses to exonerate the president.
The White House spokesperson, however, did not provide any such list by Tuesday.
The sexual misconduct allegations surfaced last year during the presidential campaign, along with an explicit audio tape of Trump talking about groping women. The women raised the issue again on Megyn Kelly's show on Monday and at a press conference, in the light of expansive sexual misconduct scandal involving various powerful women in the country.
“It was heartbreaking last year,” Samantha Holvey, a former beauty queen said. “We’re private citizens and for us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and how he views women, and for them to say, ‘Eh, we don’t care,’ it hurt.”
Holvey also claimed that Trump ogled at her and other Miss USA pageant contestants in their dressing room in 2006. While Leeds has accused the President of grabbing her chest and attempting to move his hand up her skirt on a flight.
Reports state that at least 16 women have come forward and accused Trump of sexual misconduct. Many of them revealed their ordeal after the “Access Hollywood” tape last October.
