With just more than two weeks left in the campaign, Eric Trump said that his father will accept the outcome of the election "if it's fair."
"I think what my father is saying is 'I want a fair election,'" Trump told ABC's "This Week," reiterating his belief that the election could be "rigged." "If it's a fair outcome he will absolutely accept it, there's no question about it."
Trump also said he believes that the women who have accused his father of sexual misconduct are part of a coordinated attack by Democrats.
"The day the Hillary WikiLeaks comes out, all of a sudden people start coming forward. I think you have to be really naïve to think that one and the other weren't coordinated together," Trump said.
In fact, WikiLeaks posted the first round of emails stolen from the personal account of Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, John Podesta, shortly after a 2005 "Access Hollywood" video was released featuring audio of Donald Trump making vulgar statement about kissing women without their consent and grabbing women "by the pussy."
Though women have been making allegations that Donald Trump has sexually assaulted or harassed them for decades, including in sworn court filings, more accusers came forward to accuse him of inappropriate contact in the wake of the second presidential debate.
Questioned directly about his statements recorded on the "Access Hollywood" tape, Trump denied that he had ever kissed or touched women without her consent. Several women have said that his televised denial was what motivated them to speak publicly about what they say was their experience with the Republican nominee.
When host George Stephanopoulos pressed for evidence of the Clinton campaign's involvement in the women coming forward, Trump pivoted to the Trump campaign's claim of "mainstream media" bias. Trump said his father's vow to combat the allegations in court by suing the women after the election is evidence that the Republican nominee is "a fighter." (Donald Trump also threatened to sue the New York Times after the newspaper published a report that revealed two new accusers. He has yet to do so.)
Vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine "unequivocally" denied that the Clinton campaign had anything to do with women coming forward, telling ABC's Martha Raddatz that the Republican nominee invited women to speak out when he denied assaulting them during the second presidential debate. Clinton has also denied any involvement, telling reporters "that is just not accurate."
An 11th woman came forward Saturday to publicly accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct three days after the contentious final presidential debate in which Trump called Clinton a "nasty woman" and declined to say if he would accept the results of the election.
Eric Trump stressed to Stephanopoulos that his father will not be deterred by attacks against him personally, or his campaign.
"My father is a guy who will fight," Trump said. "He'll fight for this country and he'll always fight for himself and he believes in a right and a wrong."
