UPDATE: TRUMP’s attorney has sent a letter to the NY TIMES threatening to sue them if they do not retract the story below. Trump says the story is a total fabrication. His exact statement on TWITTER:
“The phony story in the failing
@nytimes is a TOTAL FABRICATION. Written by same people as last discredited story on woman. WATCH!” – Donald J. Trump
The New York Times has released a video interview with a woman who claims Donald Trump groped her while on a flight. Here is what the NY TIMES wrote:
Jessica Leeds, a businesswoman at a paper company, was sitting next to Donald J. Trump on a flight to New York in the early 1980s. She told The Times that he lifted the armrest and began to grope her.
The NYT always reports of another woman who says Trump tried to force himself on her by demanding she kiss him. The New York Times writes: Rachel Crooks was a 22-year-old receptionist at Bayrock Group, a real estate investment and development company in Trump Tower in Manhattan, when she encountered Mr. Trump outside an elevator in the building one morning in 2005.
Aware that her company did business with Mr. Trump, she turned and introduced herself. They shook hands, but Mr. Trump would not let go, she said. Instead, he began kissing her cheeks. Then, she said, he “kissed me directly on the mouth.”
It didn’t feel like an accident, she said. It felt like a violation.
“It was so inappropriate,” Ms. Crooks recalled in an interview. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”
Trump denies these events ever happened.
The NYT TIMES WRITES: In a phone interview on Tuesday night, a highly agitated Mr. Trump denied every one of the women’s claims.
“None of this ever took place,” said Mr. Trump, who began shouting at The Times reporter who was questioning him. He said that The Times was making up the allegations to hurt him and that he would sue the news organization if it reported them.
“You are a disgusting human being,” he told the reporter as she questioned him about the women’s claims.
Asked whether he had ever done any of the kissing or groping that he had described on the recording, Mr. Trump was once again insistent: “I don’t do it. I don’t do it. It was locker room talk.”
Also today, CBS NEWS released a video of Trump talking about dating a 10-year-old girl when she grows up. Watch here.
