Attorney Allred believes Donald Trump does not represent the majority of America and that he is not someone who would bring people together as President of the United States:
“For a long time I thought his real aim was Trump TV and not the presidency. But maybe he got caught up in it and started believing he really could be President. Let’s hope that we can prove him wrong. But, you know, this is not something, I don’t think he represents the values of the majority of the American people. He represents the values of a minority. And this is, you know, we need people who are gonna bring people together, not engage in stereotypes about ethnic groups, religious groups, based on gender.”
Responding to media reported comments Mr. Trump made about her sending hundreds of letters to people who work for him, Attorney Allred said it is an absolute lie:
“It’s an absolute lie. I challenged, you know, he said I sent hundreds of letters to his employees suggesting that somehow there, you know, that if they had any claims against Donald Trump. Well, first of all, I challenged him to produce those hundreds of non existent letters and of course he never has because it was a complete and utter lie. So there’s another lie out there on the Internet today probably by one of the Trump supporters. These, you know, I have never in 40 years of watching elections seen any one candidate engage in just a tsunami of lies day after day after day. I mean, literally at this point, it’s thousands of lies. And it’s just, I think it’s one of the reasons that so many people will be happy when the election is finally over on Tuesday.”
When it comes to voting this year, Ms. Allred said this:
“As Hillary said, this vote is no longer about Trump or about her. It’s about us. It’s about us and who we are and who we want in the White House. And I think a vote is a statement of who we are. And I’m proud to be a Hillary supporter. I have been for eight years and I’m gonna be on Tuesday.”
