"That, I can tell you."

Donald Trump, facing a a mounting number of women accusing him of sexual misconduct, suggested Friday that he did not assault one women because she was not attractive enough.

"Believe me, she would not be my first choice," the Republican presidential nominee said of Jessica Leeds, who accused him of touching her inappropriately some three decades ago, during a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. "That, I can tell you. You don’t know. That would not be my first choice."

Leeds is one of several women to come forward this week claiming to be victims of Trump's unwanted sexual advances.

He later added, "When you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said, ‘I don't think so.'"

In a similar situation Thursday, Trump, speaking of the former People magazine writer who accused him of assault in a first-person essay, seemed to suggest she was not attractive enough to sexually assault, telling a crowd of supporters, "Look at her."

In typical Trump fashion, the billionaire businessman used the allegations against him to attack the "sick" media who are reporting the accusers' stories. After calling the reports against him "fabrications and false," Trump said he hopes his "patriotic movement will overcome this terrible deception."

Trump also said Friday that some of the accusers are coming forward for "a little fame," and for his most loyal supporters, that defense will likely succeed.

"We don't care! We don't care! We don't care!" one supporter yelled from the crowd, the Washington Post reported.

These latest comments from Trump follow a new allegation by former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos, who claimed Friday that Trump groped her, kissed her and tried to "[thrust] his genitals" on her in 2007.
