Trump denies horrible miscarriage of justice that resulted in punishment of innocent boys while real rapist was free to rape & murder againTrump;"The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous" Despite teens wrongfully convicted & imprisonedTrump continues to claim five black & Latino teens were guilty of rape despite DNA evidence, settlement by NYC, and confession by rapist.Trump bragging about molesting women not even the worst thing we've learned about him this week.
