Donald Trump kicked off a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania about his plan for his first 100 days as president by announcing that he will sue every woman who has accused him of sexual assault. "Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. Total fabrication," the Republican presidential nominee said over the weekend. "The [alleged] events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over." Speaking near the historic Gettysburg Battlefield on a brisk day in the Keystone State, Trump also launched attacks on the "dishonest" media, the "rigged" political system and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Trump then laid out some plans for his first 100 days in office if elected, including pledging to deport millions of what he called "criminal illegal aliens," who are "drug dealers" and "killers," and vowing to cancel federal funding for all "sanctuary cities." ABC's MORGAN WINSOR, KATHERINE FAULDERS and JOHN SANTUCCI have more. http://abcn.ws/2dwzPR4
"I saw where our opponent Donald Trump went to Gettysburg, one of the most extraordinary places in in American history, and basically said if he's president he will spend his time suing women who have made charges against him based on his behavior," Clinton said.

Diminished enthusiasm and a high level of negative support are undermining Donald Trump's candidacy in the closing stretch of the 2016 campaign, the ABC News election tracking poll finds -- while Hillary Clinton has improved on both these measures, ABC's GARY LANGER notes. Fifty-six percent of Clinton's backers in the national survey, a new high, say they're voting mainly to support her rather than to oppose Trump. By contrast, 54 percent of Trump voters are mainly motivated by opposition to Clinton, not support for him. Affirmative support can be a stronger motivator to vote, and Clinton's has gained 9 points from its low just before the party conventions in July. Trump's affirmative support, by contrast, has been essentially flat in the same period. http://abcn.ws/2eJw47g
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton today criticized her Republican rival, Donald Trump, for threatening to sue the women. Clinton made the remarks with her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, aboard her campaign plane, ABC’s JESSICA HOPPER and JOSH HASKELL report. The two are in the midst of a joint campaign swing through the battleground state of Pennsylvania. "I saw where our opponent Donald Trump went to Gettysburg, one of the most extraordinary places in in American history, and basically said if he's president he will spend his time suing women who have made charges against him based on his behavior," Clinton said. "Tim and I are going to keep talking about what we want do if we're given the great honor of serving as president and vice president." Earlier today, Trump spoke in Gettysburg, site of a three-day battle seen as the turning point of the Civil War, to give what his campaign billed as a plan for his first 100 days in office. He also attacked Clinton and his accusers. http://abcn.ws/2evCcSL
Riding a surge of support in polls in Utah, independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin said he feels "very good" about his chances of winning the state, and accused the nation's Republican leaders of putting the interests of their party ahead of conservative principles and the good of the country, ABC’s NICKI ROSSOLL reports. "The reality is that the vast majority of Republican leaders are putting party ahead of principle and putting power over the interests of their own country," McMullin told George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview on ABC's "This Week." http://abcn.ws/2ekRcpJ
