He referred to one woman who says Trump groped her on a plane many years ago as “that awful woman”, and went on to demean her looks. According to Tumulty, the reporter, she was given a tip by someone who had heard Anderson tell her story about Trump and encouraged her to check it out. Trump calls accusers “sick”, “horrible”, says one “would not be my first choice ” While in NY on a social trip in 2007, Zervos said she contacted Trump for a meeting regarding a possible employment opportunity.
The alleged incident between Zervos and Trump occurred in 2007, after Trump “fired” her from The Apprentice.
“He went after me on a plane”, said Trump, mocking Leeds’ account of the alleged incident.
It comes as Kristin Anderson told the Washington Post the business mogul put his hand up her skirt at a nightclub in the early 1990s “just to prove that he could”. I think it’s a disgusting thing.
His campaign said he “vaguely remembers” Ms Zervos, but insisted the meeting at the hotel never happened.
“When I arrived, his security guard greeted me at the hotel”. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life.
Zervos said Trump emerged 15 minutes later and started kissing her “open-mouthed” while pulling her towards him.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump faces a fresh allegation of groping, even as his running mate promised that evidence casting doubt on other accusations of sexual misconduct would be made public soon.
Both Trump and Cosby have been accused of leveraging their celebrity status as proof that their words will ultimately win out in these cases.
Zervos walked out and he tried to convince her to lay in his bed with him and watch television, she said. Some of the women who have come forward have said his debate remark motivated them to come forward. “And deny it. And get away with it”, she added.
As he continued to deny the allegations, several of his supporters shouted back, “We believe you!”
“He put me in an embrace and I tried to push him away”, Zervos said. “Maybe I’m not gonna have a choice”. “Somebody that you’ve never seen that said, ‘Oh, in 1992, he went like this, ‘” he said at one point, appearing to mimic pawing at a woman’s chest in a downward motion. “They threaten to blame the victim and punish the victim over and over again if they threaten to expose the behavior”, Streyffeler said.
Moving on, Trump called President Obama “incompetent” and blasted him for spending “all day long” campaigning for Clinton instead of bringing jobs back to the country.
Trump called his accusers liars and “sick” women seeking fame or money.
“Tolerance is on the ballot”.

In a speech to a North Carolina audience Friday, Trump said that the allegations are “100 percent false” and “made up”. “The only thing I said is hopefully, hopefully our patriotic movement will overcome this awful deception”.
“I am completely shocked and bewildered by my cousin, Summer Zervos, and her press conference today“, Barry said in the statement. “The stories are fabrications and false and the only thing I say is hopefully, hopefully, our patriotic movement will overcome this awful deception”, Trump said.
