Lawyers representing women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct have responded bullishly to his pledge to sue them.

In the last two weeks at least 10 women have come forward, accusing the Republican candidate of inappropriately touching them. Their allegations came after a 2005 videotape of Trump surfaced, where he bragged about being able to grope women and get away with it.

On Saturday, Trump vowed to sue all of the women, prompting representatives of two of the accusers to issue statements.

Gloria Allred, a lawyer representing Jessica Drake, gave a press conference with her client in which she gave the businessman a sharp warning. 

“Be careful what you wish for, Mr. Trump,” said Allred. “If you sue the accusers, the lawyers who represent these women will have the opportunity to depose you.

"In plain English, you will be required to testify under oath and the women’s lawyers will welcome the opportunity to question you under oath.

"You may find the questions may include all the women with whom you have had sexual interaction.”

Shortly afterwards, the lawyer for Jill Harth released this statement on Twitter:

Trump has denied all accusations against him ahead of the US elections on November 8.
