New York magnate Moishe Mana to cover Trump accusers' legal fees

The "man with a van" says he'll unload millions to bankroll the legal defense of Donald Trump's accusers.

New York billionaire Moishe Mana — the Israeli immigrant who started Moishe's Moving with a borrowed van in the 1980s — told the Daily News he's willing to spend "whatever money necessary" to defend any woman sued by Trump over her allegations of sexual misconduct.

"Whatever money it is, $1 million, $2 million, $5 million or $10 million," the real estate mogul told The News by phone shortly before boarding a flight from Korea to Florida.

"It's my word," he said of the promise. "We will put together a team. I will spearhead it. I will put money, and we will make it happen. We can't let one guy terrorize us."

More than a dozen women have accused Trump of unwanted sexual advances or sexual assault during the course of his campaign.

Most stepped forward in recent weeks after a 2005 "Access Hollywood" recording emerged in which the former "Apprentice" star bragged about kissing and grabbing women without their permission.

"All of these liars will be sued once the election is over," Trump vowed the same day adult film actress Jessica Drake claimed Trump kissed and hugged her without consent and offered her $10,000 for a hotel rendezvous.

Though details of Mana's plan were still murky Thursday, the entrepreneur said he plans to set up a website or phone number in the next few days for women who've already stepped forward and anyone considering going public.

"I intend to fight it and do whatever it takes to protect the girls, and even seek damages from the guy," he told The News.

"We're going to hire lawyers to defend the whole case should he try to attack them," he said. "It cannot be that one guy can bully the entire country and do whatever and say whatever and we are subject to his rhetoric."

A vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton, he said he considers Trump a demagogue who wants to "take us back in time."

"I can't believe one guy can talk the way he talks about women and immigrants," Mana said. "This rhetoric should not be allowed. Protecting these women and these girls is part of a bigger fight."
