Trump Denies Forcibly Kissing Woman in 2005

Trump Denies Forcibly Kissing Woman in 2005”

She claims Trump kissed her without her consent when she worked as a receptionist at Trump Tower. The president says he doesn't know Rachel Crooks and "to the best of my knowledge, never met" her.

Rachel Crooks, who has previously called for a Congressional investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Mr Trump, retold her story on the front page of the Washington Post. "He took hold of my hand and held me in place like this", she said, squeezing the sides of the water glass, shaking it gently from side to side.

"I introduced myself; he kind of held onto my hand, kissed my cheeks, kept drawing me back in, kissed me on the cheeks and then he kissed me on the lips", she claimed. She claims he asked whether she wanted to be a model, before kissing her for two whole minutes. "I just start kissing them, it's like a magnet, I don't even wait, and when you're a star, they let you do it, you can do anything". "It felt like a long kiss", she said.

She said the incident lasted around two minutes.

And so a new mystery unfolds: Why the hell would he tweet about this WaPo story knowing that he'll drive an enormous audience to it who otherwise would never have read it?

Crooks recalled the alleged kiss in a group conversation witnessed by a Post reporter.

Crooks moved to New York City from OH in 2005, chasing dreams of working in fashion and living in a skyscraper, and took a job working for Bayrock, an investment firm in Trump Tower, Eli Saslow reports for the Post. "I must just appear to be some dumb girl that he can take advantage of", one says. He added, "You know, I'm automatically attracted to lovely - I just start kissing them".

Trump opened the floodgates of accusations against him during the 2016 campaign when he downplayed the release of a 2005 "Access Hollywood" video that showed him saying he was able to "grab them by the p**sy" because he was famous.

President Trump on Tuesday lashed out at one of the 19 women who had accused him of sexual assault or abuse - calling her a liar after she again detailed her story in the media.

"The people of this country, at a decisive election, supported President Trump", Sanders said, "and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process". He has also denied all of the other allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

Beginning Saturday, Trump has unleashed his anger on Twitter, attacking usual suspects such as Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Democrats, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and accusations of his campaign's collusion with Russian Federation.
