Mike Pence says evidence will back Trump grope denial

Vice-presidential candidate Mike Pence has said new evidence will emerge on Friday that will undermine the sexual accusations against Donald Trump. The Republican said the “Clinton political machine” was using slander and lies to deflect from real issues.

Several women have accused Mr Trump of groping them or kissing them forcibly, which he has strongly denied. First Lady Michelle Obama said some of Mr Trump’s boasts about women were “shocking and demeaning”. And she said the language he has used was that of a sexual predator.

Mr Trump was heard bragging on tape that he could force himself on women because he was a star. Pence rejected the first lady’s description, saying he did not understand the basis of her claim.

Mr Trump had categorically denied the allegations and they are unsubstantiated, said the Indiana governor. “Before the day is out there will be more evidence publicly that calls into question these allegations.” More information will back Mr Trump’s claim that “this is all categorically false”.

Trump denied at Sunday’s presidential debate that he had ever committed sexual assault. A few days later, women began to come forward with stories of Mr Trump forcing himself on them. On Thursday, he was defiant, calling the women “horrible liars”.
