Donald Trump has laid out an ambitious agenda for his first 100 days as USA president, but his vow to sue the women who have accused him of unwanted sexual behaviour overshadowed the billionaire's "Gettysburg address".
Speaking near what he called the "hallowed ground" of a Civil War landmark, Donald Trump sought to look to the future of his potential first 100 days in office, but he first he returned to the past, vowing to sue the women who have accused him of sexual assault and accusing the media of biased reporting.

"Total fabrication", the Republican presidential nominee said, reiterating that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party orchestrated the allegations. Earlier this month, an attorney for Trump demanded a retraction and apology for a New York Times story in which two women accused Trump of touching them inappropriately, calling it "reckless" and "defamatory". 'I respect that. I want to answer them. "I want to earn your vote".
