When women report sexual assault, they worry they'll be denigrated, that they won't be believed, that they won't see justice. When they report sexual assault against a candidate for president, they can worry about far worse.

Mindy McGillivray, who says Donald Trump groped her during a photo shoot at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, told the Palm Beach Post on Friday she's preparing to leave the country. McGillivray said she's seen people stalking her at her home, and fears for the safety of her 15-year-old daughter.

"I don't live in a gated community," she said. "This is dangerous. There could be people out there who want to hurt us."

McGillivray came out to tell her story, as many women did, after Donald Trump categorically denied he'd sexually assault anyone during the second presidential debate. As of Friday, at least 11 women have accused Donald Trump of groping or assaulting them.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is on the campaign trail claiming that all of the women are lying, and the attacks are a globalist conspiracy by the Clinton campaign and international banks.

"They have no witnesses, there's nobody around," Trump said at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. "Some are doing [it] probably for a little fame. They get some free fame. It's a total set-up."
