Donald Trump held another rally in Greensboro Friday afternoon. The embattled Republican candidate for president wasted no time blasting his opponent, Hillary Clinton, ahead of the last presidential debate next week.

“Crooked Hillary is doing no more public events until after the debate,” Trump said. “They say she’s doing debate prep, but really she’s just resting. She’s resting.”

As Trump spoke in Greensboro, another woman accusing him of unwanted sexual advances held a press conference in California.

Trump spent more than fourteen minutes of his speech refuting claims that he groped or sexually assaulted women.

“It’s a phony deal,” he said. “I have no idea who these women are. I have no idea. And I think you people know I have no idea, because you’ve known me for a lot of years. When you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said ‘I don’t think so. I don’t think so'.”

According to recent polls, Trump’s support has fallen off in the state in the past week, as it has in the rest of the country.

Multiple media outlets have reported that his campaign has closed its field operations in Virginia and moved more people into North Carolina for the stretch before Election Day.
