Five Women Claim Trump Forced Himself On Them, He Denies Accusations And Creepy Video With Young Girl Surfaces
It has been less than a week since a 2005 video of Donald Trump caught on a hot mic saying, “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful (women) — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.” Now there are five women making allegations that Trump sexually assaulted them.
The New York Times reported on two women who say Trump assaulted them, one more than three decades ago and another more recently, in 2005. Jessica Leeds, 74, alleges that Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt during a flight in the 1970s.
“He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”
Leeds then moved to the back of the plane.
“It was an assault,” she said.
Rachel Crooks, a receptionist at Bayrock Group, a real estate investment and development company in Trump Tower in Manhattan, said she was assaulted outside an elevator in the building one morning in 2005.
She shook hands with Trump, but he allegedly would not let go. Instead, he began kissing her cheeks. Then, she said, he “kissed me directly on the mouth.”
“It is absurd to think that one of the most recognizable business leaders on the planet with a strong record of empowering women in his companies would do the things alleged in this story, and for this to only become public decades later in the final month of a campaign for president should say it all,” said Jason Miller, a Trump spokesman.
Trump’s lawyer says the Times article is “nothing more than a politically motivated effort to defeat Mr. Trump’s candidacy.” Lawyer Marc E. Kasowitz sent a letter to the Times demanding the newspaper retract the story, saying the article is “reckless, defamatory and constitutes libel.”
A third woman, Mindy McGillivray, says Trump groped her rear end at his Mar-a-Lago resort 13 years ago, the Palm Beach Post reported.
McGillivray, 36, said she was groped by Trump at Mar-a-Lago 13 years ago. She said she never reported it to authorities.
But her companion that day, photographer Ken Davidoff, vividly remembers when McGillivray pulled him aside moments after the alleged incident and told him, ‘’Donald just grabbed my ass!’’
