The new child rape allegations against Donald Trump are credible. First and foremost the plaintiff has an witness. [0] Donald Trump has been accused by his ex-wife, Ivana of raping her. Jill Harth accused Trump of sexual assault. Selina Scott accused Trump of stalking her.

Top this off with Trump being an overt misogynist. Since misogyny and sexual assault are linked, Trump is at more likely to commit sexual assault. [1]


"“The first reason, and this is one of the implications, is that sexual objectification really involves reducing someone to their appearance or sexual body parts. So that reduction? That can be problem,” Gervais said. “It sets the stage for things like dehumanization and enacting violence for example, sexual violence toward women. Dehumanization and objectification also lead to even graver things like genocide. "[2]

"Transcript of How objectification leads to violence towards women" [3][4]



Finally, most rape case allegations are credible.

"
5.9 percent of cases were provably false." [5]



"
That leaves 35.3 percent of cases that led to formal charges or discipline against the accused." [5]


I think the allegations are credible and there is good chance, about 30-40% Trump committed the deed. Of everything here, the 35.3% conviction rate of rapes is what convinces me. That means, there is a good chance Trump not only commited the deed, but the allegations are credible.

Thanks for the debate.

All of your points are invalid and are based off of feelings and opinion. There is no evidence of any of this other than so called "witnesses" where anyone now days can go around claiming rape. Most rape case allegations are credible because they are real. Patrick Kane (a hockey player) was dropped of rape charges because, well simply, there was no rape. This comes with being famous and people will do anything to gain more publicity, so until I see actual evidence he is innocent until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent.

My opponent picks one celebrity that was acquitted of charges. Bill Cosby hasn't been convicted yet, but public opinion says he is guilty. The question isn't whether or not Donald Trump committed the crimes, but whether the accusations are credible.

I picked a celebrity that was acquitted of charges because it was facts. Again you bring up no evidence and bring up someone that hasn't been on trial/convicted. Of course the public will believe this as they are biased and people naturally hate people that are even accused against. Accusations are not credible without actual evidence. there is no solid evidence and again, you are not guilty until proven innocent

There is evidence against Trump, both the plaintiff's testimony and the witness. The accusations are credible and an investigation of Trump should take place. Perhaps during the investigation more evidence will come to light.

Con

Witness testimonies are not physical evidence. If any of this actually happened why is it only coming out now? Why did they wait so long to talk about it? Probably because well...it doesn't exist.
