WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is accusing a “sick media” of trying to take down his presidential campaign in cahoots with rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Speaking at a rally Friday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Trump targeted Carlos Slim, the Mexican billionaire who owns a share of The New York Times.
Trump declared that “we can’t let” Slim influence the election.
Trump has threatened to sue the Times for a story that featured two women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct.
Trump is accusing the media of fabricating stories about a slew of women who have made similar accusations in recent days. Trump says the stories are lies.
He said, “our media is indeed sick and it’s making our country sick. And we’re going to stop it.”
