( - "There's nothing Hillary Clinton won't do or say to obtain power, and it's about time people started to understand that," Donald Trump told a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Trump said Clinton is "disqualified from office" for deleting 33,000 emails after they were subpoenaed; he called out the "hypocrisy" of the Clintons and the media that protects them; and he said if the Clinton campaign wants to release more tapes of Trump saying bad things, he'll continue to call out the Clintons for doing bad things.

"I'll tell you what, the only thing she's got going is the media. Without the media, she would not have a chance," Trump said of Clinton.

He accused the media of ignoring the "secret speeches released by WikiLeaks" that show Clinton supporting open borders and free trade, positions she says she no longer holds.

"One more very important issue where I exposed the hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton, and the media, was on Hillary Clinton's treatment of women," Trump said. "I was getting beaten up for 72 hours on all the networks for inappropriate words 12 years ago. Locker room talk, whatever you want to call it.

"But I said to myself, wait a minute...Bill Clinton sexually assaulted innocent women and Hillary Clinton attacked those women viciously...If they want to release more tapes saying inappropriate things, we'll continue to talk about Bill and Hillary Clinton doing inappropriate things. There are so many of them, folks."

Trump talked about bringing four of the Clintons' accusers to the debate in St. Louis on Sunday to tell stories that the media will not cover.

"To quote Juanita Broaddrick, 'Hillary Clinton threatened me after Bill Clinton raped me.' She's been struggling to get the media to pay attention to her for many, many years. So last night, I decided we would expose the hypocrisy of the Clintons and the media and our politicians to the entire world.

"As I outlined last night, Bill Clinton was the worst abuser of women ever to sit in the Oval Office. He was a predator. Hillary Clinton systematically attacked and discredited the victims of Bill Clinton's sexual harassment and assault. These things aren't written by the media, but they're true. Written by many books.

"These victims include names like Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Connie Hamzy, Eileen Wellstone, Sandra Allen James and Cristy Zercher. And there are many, many more. For decades, Hillary Clinton has been deeply familiar with her husband's predatory behavior, and instead of trying to stop it, she made it possible for him to take advantage of even more women. She put even more women in harm's way and then she goes out and says, 'I love women. I'm going to help women. I'm gonna help women.' She's a total hypocrite.

"The hypocrisy of the media and our politicians is hard to believe. They condemn my words, but they ignore and defend the -- and this is the way it is -- the reprehensible actions of Hillary and Bill Clinton that have destroyed and hurt so many lives."

Trump said "the hypocrites in the media" exalt Democrats for the same bad behavior that they would use to slam Republicans:

"But the hypocrites in the media don't want to talk about what Hillary Clinton has done to these victims. They don't want to talk about what their other political heroes have done to other innocent girls and women. People like Kennedy, Chappaquiddick. We remember that. Driving his car into a pond instead of calling the police, possibly saving her life. In fact, almost definitely being able to save her life. He went home and went to sleep. Did not report the incident to the police for 10 hours, yet he was hailed as a hero.

"The last 72 hours has framed what this election is all about," Trump continued. "It's about the American people fighting back against corrupt politicians who don't care about anything except staying in power and keeping their donors happy.

"What I want to say to every American right now is that I accept the mantle of this responsibility for all of us, for all of us.

"We have an absolute incredible situation taking place, folks. And I will never stop fighting for you against the Washington establishment that has betrayed each and every one of you, betrayed the country. Our government has lost its virtue. Right now, it's just about protecting the powerful, and you know what I mean. And I know it better than anybody else. And I'm doing this because I just think it's so damn unfair."
