Awash in allegations that he sexually assaulted several women, Donald Trump is reaching into his old playbook and threatening to sue the media for reporting the claims, which he says are false.
Although a number of outlets, including the , People and an NBC affiliate posted stories Wednesday night about Trump's allegedly forcing himself on women, it was a New York Times piece that apparently rankled Trump the most.
That story, "Two Women Say Donald Trump Touched Them Inappropriately," offered detailed allegations from a pair of women who said they had troubling encounters with the Republican presidential nominee.
When interviewed for the story, Trump told a reporter for the Times, Megan Twohey, that she was "a disgusting human being." Late Wednesday night he upped the ante. His lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, sent a letter to the Times, putting the newspaper on notice that Trump intended to sue.
