WASHINGTON -

Before the second presidential debate, Donald Trump has appeared at an event with women who accused former President Bill Clinton of rape and unwanted sexual advances.

The Republican nominee did not take questions as he appeared with Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey.

Jones is a former Arkansas state worker who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Bill Clinton in 1994 for allegedly exposing himself to her in a Little Rock hotel room.

She says of Trump, "He's going to make America great again."

Also at the event was Kathy Shelton, who was sexually assaulted as a 12-year-old.

Hillary Clinton represented the suspect as a public defender

Clinton's campaign says Trump is continuing a "destructive race to the bottom" by appearing with the group of women.

Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri said Clinton plans to use the Sunday night debate to talk to voters and "this stunt doesn't change that."

Palmieri said Clinton is "prepared to handle whatever Donald Trump throws her way."
