(CNN)Donald Trump on Friday called himself a “victim” as more women continued to come forward on Friday accusing him of sexual assault and harassment.
“As you have seen, I am a victim of one of the great political smear campaigns in the history of our country,” he said at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday night. “They are coming after me to try and destroy what is considered by even them the greatest movement in the history of our country.”
Trump’s comments came as he once again alleged it’s “all false stuff” and there is a “concerted effort” to take down his campaign, ignoring calls from his campaign advisers to focus on economic issues rather than responding to the allegations.
“When you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said, ‘I don’t think so! I don’t think so!'” Trump said.
As he continued to deny the allegations, several of his supporters shouted back, “We believe you!”
Trump also suggested that the allegations against him were so unfounded that “they could say it about anybody,” including President Barack Obama.
“Why doesn’t some woman maybe come up and say what they say falsely about me, they could say about him? They could say it about anybody. They could say it about anybody. He better be careful because they could say it about anybody. Anybody at all,” Trump said.
