On Thursday, the latest Donald Trump rally will take place in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Trump rally will be live streaming online for viewers interested in watching what transpires at the latest event for the Republican presidential nominee. The latest event takes place amidst recent controversy and allegations against the billionaire businessman from two females claiming they were sexually assaulted by him. Trump has since responded to the allegations.
The latest allegations of sexual assault have been made by two women. Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks each came forward to share stories with the New York Times regarding Trump’s actions against them. Leeds alleges Trump was traveling with her when she was a businesswoman and lifted an airplane armrest in between them so he could grab her without her consent. The Trump assault against Leeds was said to have occurred three decades ago.
Crooks also alleges sexual assault by Trump and claims it occurred back in 2005. She indicates that Trump had approached her in an elevator at Trump Tower where she was working as a receptionist and that he began to kiss her on the mouth. This incident seems to coincide with comments Trump had made on the leaked Access Hollywood tape. On that tape, Trump mentions he just starts kissing a beautiful woman when he sees them. However, Trump and his campaign have strongly denied these allegations.
When asked about the allegations by the Times, Trump kept with the same stance that he had on the topic when discussing it during the second presidential debate.
“I don’t do it. I don’t do it. It was locker room talk.”
The Republican nominee will continue on the campaign trail in Florida, where he landed on Wednesday. As CBS Miami indicated, Trump is ramping up his efforts to try to secure the 29 electoral votes available in the battleground state. The presidential candidate has been urging anyone who hasn’t registered to vote to become registered so that they can turn out at the polls and help his attempts to become the next president of the United States.
On Wednesday, Trump was in Florida for events in Ocala and then Lakeland at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. According to ABC Action News, thousands of people were in attendance on the airport tarmac for the Trump rally in Lakeland. Many of his supporters seem to remain steadfast in their loyalty to the Republican nominee, despite Trump’s comments that were caught on camera and have resurfaced from over a decade ago.
As ABC Action News reported, Trump supporter Sherry Abbott indicated she was willing to move on past the controversial comments that Trump had made.
“It was just a distraction for me. He asked for forgiveness and I believe in forgiveness.”
Trump’s next stop on the campaign trail is in West Palm Beach, Florida. The real estate investor and billionaire businessman will speak at the South Florida Fair Expo Center. Doors open as early as 9 a.m. Eastern Time, with the event scheduled to start at 12 p.m. ET on Thursday. Tickets to the event were available in a “first come first serve basis” via the Donald J. Trump website.

The next presidential debate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will take place on Wednesday, October 19, at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada. The latest debate will be moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News with televised and live stream coverage available.
