Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Cleveland, Ohio this evening, his last of three events today.
Trump will speak from the I-X Center beginning at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The event can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
This is Trump’s final stop of the day after speaking in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Virginia Beach, Virginia. Trump has started to make his campaign’s closing argument this weekend, laying out what he wants to do during his first 100 days in office.
Trump said today that, if elected president, he will pursue the following six measures on his first day:
- Propose a Constitutional amendment imposing term limits on Congress.
- Impose a hiring freeze on non-essential federal employees.
- Require that for every new federal regulation passed, two existing regulations are eliminated.
- Implement a five-year ban on White House or Congressional officials becoming lobbyists when they leave office.
- Ban White House officials from lobbying on behalf of a foreign government for life.
- Ban foreign lobbyists from raising money for American elections.
Unfortunately for Trump, though, it wasn’t any of these proposals that dominated the news on Saturday. Instead, it was the fact that Trump, while straying from his scripted remarks, promised to sue the 11 women who have accused him of sexual assault.
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,” Trump said. “Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”
This seems unlikely to happen, and it would not be the first time Trump threatened to file a lawsuit and then never followed through on it. When The New York Times recently published a story about two women who say Donald Trump sexually assaulted them, the Republican candidate said he was preparing to sue the news organization. But that threat is about as far as Trump took it, and he has not mentioned this lawsuit since.
