Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump took to his preferred medium of Twitter to unload on Republican leaders abandoning him.

Numerous congressional Republicans and candidates said they would not support Trump after comments he made a decade ago alluding to unwanted sexual advances were released.

But Trump continued to strike a defiant tone against many Republicans ahead of Sunday’s debate, often engaging in manually quote tweeting his supporters.

Trump also posted an interview with Juanita Broaddrick, who has accused former President Bill Clinton of rape and Hillary Clinton of threatening her afterward. The interview was done with the website Breitbart, which was run by Trump’s now campaign chairman Steve Bannon.
