Republican candidate Donald Trump is avoiding the spotlight following allegations of sexual harassment, the Washington Examiner reports.
Last Friday, The Washington Post released a 2005 recording showing Trump having a lewd conversation about women, suggesting that he could grope them because he was famous.
On Wednesday, The New York Times wrote a report about two women who accuse Trump of sexually harassing them, alleging he touched and kissed them without their consent.
Trump denounced "the slander and libels that was just last night thrown at me by the Clinton machine and the New York Times and other media outlets . . . These vicious claims, about me, of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false," according to Fox News.
Now Trump is making the press his enemy. He hasn't taken questions at a press conference since July, after the Democratic National Convention. He's refusing to make TV appearances, even on friendlier networks like Fox News, where he was scheduled to appear on Thursday.
Trump's surrogates, including campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, have been dispatched on his behalf, answering questions on morning network news shows and cable besides Fox News.
