Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire this afternoon, his first of two events on Saturday.
Trump will speak from Toyota of Portsmouth beginning at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The rally can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
This rally comes after several days during which media coverage was dominated by women coming forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual assault. The latest accusers came on Friday, one being a former contestant on The Apprentice and one being a woman who says Trump sexually assaulted her in a nightclub.
Trump has called each of these women liars, suggesting that they are being paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign. The women themselves have said that they did not plan on coming forward until the leaked Access Hollywood tape on which Trump brags about being able to force himself upon women because he is a celebrity.
The Donald Trump campaign released a statement on Friday saying that the Republican candidate refuses to engage in personal attacks. Despite that, during his rally in North Carolina that day, Trump mocked the women who have accused him of sexual assault, saying that one, Jessica Leeds, is not attractive enough for him to force himself on.
“Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you,” Trump said of Leeds. “That would not be my first choice.”
This section of Trump’s speech addressing the accusers was largely improvised, and it seems that those around Trump wish he would focus on the issues. During Trump’s North Carolina rally, one supporter shouted out, “Stay on the issues!” Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, jokingly suggested on Twitter that she’s the one who shouted that out.
Hillary Clinton currently leads Trump in New Hampshire, ahead of him by 4.3 percentage points in Real Clear Politics’ polling average.
