Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told the crowd at a Charlotte rally that the election is "rigged."

Trump - who spoke for almost an hour - touched on his usual campaign themes of trade deals, immigration, Obamacare, income and taxes, Hillary Clinton and missing emails and said the Democratic nominee doesn't deserve to be president. 

"And that’s why when the media does what they’re doing now that’s rigging the system folks. It’s rigging the system," he said. "The election is rigged. It’s rigged like you’ve never seen before. They’re rigging the system. These are very dishonest people."

After a week that saw several women come forward to accuse Trump of inappropriate behavior in the past, the republican started the rally by recognizing female supporters. 

"It’s called women for Trump," he said.

Many in the crowd had signs with the slogan. 

Trump said the accusations against him are "100 percent false."

"The media and the Clinton campaign have come forward with false allegations less than a month before the most important election in modern times," Trump said. "These allegations are 100 percent false as everybody knows. I think you get it. They’re made up. They never happened. These claims defy reason, truth, logic, common sense, and made without supporting witnesses. No witnesses."

Trump said, "Not me, believe me. You would be very impressed with my life in so many regards – including that regard."

The Republican nominee said he believes the media is targeting him.

"I am a victim of one of the great political smear campaigns in the history of our country. They are coming after me to try and destroy what is considered by even them the greatest movement in the history of our country," he said. "The political establishment is trying to stop us because they know we are a threat to their totally corrupt control. No one is more corrupt than crooked Hillary Clinton."
