Amid rumors of potentially more tapes showing him making inappropriate comments in the past, Donald Trump issued a threat to rival Hillary Clinton, saying Monday that if he keeps getting attacked, he’ll keep talking about the women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault and harassment. In his first public rally since Sunday night’s debate and last Friday’s disclosure of a 2005 videotape showing him making shockingly lewd comments about women, the Republican presidential nominee defended his “inappropriate words” but insisted that Bill Clinton has treated women far worse. And he attacked Hillary Clinton for supposedly doing nothing to stop it. Trump seemed to confirm there could be more shoes to drop.

They want to release more tapes [of me] saying inappropriate things, we’ll continue to talk about Bill and Hillary Clinton doing inappropriate things.

Donald Trump

Investor Warren Buffett sent out a statement Monday responding to Trump's comments during Sunday's debate when Trump confirmed using a $916 million loss in 1995 to avoid paying federal income taxes. Buffett also released details of his own taxes and reiterated his call for Trump to release his tax returns, saying he never used the kind of tax deduction that Trump did.
