Trump’s sexual assault allegations have caused a setback in his numbers by 9 points behind Hillary Clinton.
As Trump denies the allegations of sexually assaulting women, more and more women are showing up with their stories.
This has unfortunately affected Trump’s numbers in the polls. Report says that prior to their final debate, Hillary leads with 51% while Trump is on 42%.
From denying the allegations, Trump has slammed the media; calling them biased.
The low numbers at the moment could be traced to Trump’s sexual assault allegations. The accusations stemmed from the leaked video where he made comments of forcefully kissing and groping women in 2005. Another will be his admiration for Russia’s president, Putin, America’s arch rival and contender of all times.
Russia has been suspected to be behind the leaked Hillary Clinton emails, which is still a major setback in her race to the white house. Trump had sarcastically praised the nation for the supposed internet hacking of the American government documents (even though Russia denied it). He went as far as saying on a radio interview that he intends to visit Russia before assuming power in the oval office.
“If I win on November 8, I could see myself meeting with Putin and meeting with Russia prior to the start of the administration.”
Trump is going deeper and deeper with his claims that the November elections will be grossly rigged. He is certain that the rigging process has actually begun in a gradual process.
In reference to his claims, Obama has advised Trump to “stop whining”. He calls Trump’s rigging predictions “unprecedented” as it has never been heard of about any US presidential candidate in history.
The president dismissed Trump’s rigging allegation, saying they were no facts backing it.
“I’d advise Mr Trump to stop whining and try to make his case to get votes,”
“By the way, (it) doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president, if you start whining before the game’s even over.”
The president also added:
“If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.”
