Whatever gains GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump hoped to gain by speaking in historic Gettysburg and laying out his plans for the first 100 days as president, was swallowed up when he threatened to sue all the women who have come forward to accuse him of sexually assaulting them.
After going point by point over his plans, Trump blew up everything he said before by addressing his accusers and saying, “All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”
The very un-Lincoln-like comment, compared to the more famous and unifying Gettysburg address, was promptly condemned and mocked.
#Gettysburg "4 score and 7 years ago, I assaulted women, went bankrupt multiple times, and sued everyone who criticized me."

Trump said "100" days b/c it's his estimate of how many women will have come forward by then.#Gettysburg

I don't recall Lincoln revealing plans to sue women when he gave the real #Gettysburg address. I could be wrong.

Trump: "And government by me, for me, and of me…will sue those women that weren't worth groping off the face of the earth" #Gettysburg
