Donald Trump’s presidential campaign on Sunday continued to blame Hillary Clinton and her top aides for multiple women alleging sexual assault by the Republican nominee, saying the Clinton political machine is reaching into a bag of “dirty tricks” in an effort to sink Mr. Trump’s White House bid.

Speaking on ABC News’ “This Week,” Mr. Trump’s son, Eric, said he doesn’t believe the accusations against his father and said the campaign was warned months ago that such charges would surface in the final days of the campaign.

“And you know what somebody told me? They go, ‘Eric, get ready for October.’ They told me this months and months ago: ‘Get ready for October. Your family will live through the worst, most unthinkable, hardest month of your lives,’” he said. “‘What they’ll throw at you, what the Clinton machine will throw at you, you know, the dirty tricks, the things that will come out, the things they’ll orchestrate.’”

At Wednesday’s presidential debate, Mr. Trump blamed the sexual assault allegations on the Clinton campaign. At least 10 women have come forward to say that Mr. Trump made unwanted sexual advances toward them.

The Republican has denied all of the charges. During a speech Saturday in Pennsylvania, he said he plans to sue the women after the election is over.
