Donald Trump vows to sue sexual assault accusers, lays out plan for first 100 days in office

(ABC NEWS) -- Donald Trump kicked off a speech today in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, about his plan for his first 100 days as president by announcing that he will after the election sue every woman who has accused him of sexual assault.

"Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. Total fabrication," the Republican presidential nominee said at the Eisenhower Hotel. "The [alleged] events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over."

Trump also launched attacks on the "dishonest" media, the "rigged" political system and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. He questioned why Clinton was even allowed to run due to her handling of emails as secretary of state.

"The system is also rigged because Hillary Clinton should have been precluded from running for the presidency of the United States, but the FBI and the Justice Department covered up her crimes," Trump said.

Referring to the proposed mega deal for AT&T to buy Time Warner, the GOP nominee decried the concentration of ownership of the country's media in the hands of "too few."

The nation's mainstream media is "corrupt," Trump said. "They lie and fabricate stories to make a candidate that is not their preferred choice look as bad and even dangerous as possible. They're trying to poison the mind of the American voter."

Trump then laid out some plans for his first 100 days in office if elected, including pledging to deport millions of what he called "criminal illegal aliens," who are "drug dealers" and "killers," and vowing to cancel federal funding for all "sanctuary cities."

The real estate developer also reiterated his promises to get rid of Obamacare.

Trump delivered the speech in the historic town near where President Abraham Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address in 1863.

"President Lincoln served in a time of division like we have never seen before," he said. Now also, he said, "We are a very divided nation."
