Trump supports a Republican candidate who has been accused of sexual abuse by 8 women

Former US President Donald Trump campaigned this Sunday in favor of Charles Herbster, a Nebraska gubernatorial hopeful who has been accused by eight women of sexually abusing them.

Herbster appears in voting intention polls tied with two other Republican candidates to the governorship of the state, ahead of the primaries to be held on May 10.

The former president has maintained his endorsement of Herbster even after eight women denounced in a local newspaper article in mid-April Nebraska Examiner what the candidate groped them without their consent at public events.

Two of them have made their names public, and one of them, the Republican state senator julie slamclaims Herbster reached up her skirt at an act in 2019.

The other, the Republican adviser elizabeth todsenmade her complaint public this Saturday, stating that Herbster had groped her in the same act as Slama.

Herbster has denied all allegations and has sued Slama for defamation, who responded with a complaint against him for sexual assault.

Trump defends the candidate saying that the allegations of sexual abuse are “malicious”

At Sunday’s rally, Trump defended his candidate, calling the accusations against him “malicious” and saying they were the main motivation for holding a rally in Greenwood ahead of the Republican primary later this month.

“It’s been heavily maligned and it’s a shame. That’s why I’ve come here,” the former president said. “It would have been easy for me to say, ‘I’m not coming.’ I stand up for my people when I know they’re good.”

“Charles W. Herbster will never bow to the RINOs (derogatory denomination of the Republicans in Name Only, or Republicans in name only), the media, or the radical left. That is why they are doing everything possible to stop it. Malicious accusations to derail him enough to get the election through before the proper defense can be presented,” the former president said.

Trump, who once bragged about grabbing women by the genitals, has been accused by at least 26 women of sexual harassment or abuse, including one allegation of rape.

The former president has denied all these allegations, which mostly arose during the 2016 election campaign but did not prevent his election as president, and during his tenure he did not hesitate to defend several men accused of sexual crimes, including the judge he nominated for The Supreme, Brett Kavanaugh.
