On Friday afternoon, civil rights lawyer Gloria Allred held a press conference with Summer Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice.”
According to Zervos, she met with Trump after the show to discuss a possible job opportunity and in that meeting he began kissing and touching her inappropriately.
Zervos said that Trump asked her to lay down and put her in an embrace that she tried to break out of. Trump then allegedly “began thrusting his genitals” at her.
Zervos is the latest in an increasingly long line of women who have accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual harassment.
Last week, an audio recording of Trump saying that he would “grab ’em by the pussy” leaked to the press. The video was recorded during an “Access Hollywood” segment on Donald Trump hosted by Billy Bush. Trump knew he was wearing a microphone for the segment and discussed how easy it was to get women with Bush. According to Trump, he could go up and grab women by their vaginas, because he was famous and could essentially do what he wanted.
Since the tape was published, several women came forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault throughout his long time in the public eye.
Two of those women came forward in an article in the New York Times, which prompted Trump to threaten to file a lawsuit against the paper.
The Trump camp has denied the allegations against the Republican nominee and has deflected to decades-old allegations against former President Bill Clinton.
At a rally on Friday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Trump said that the press was making up these allegations in order to demean his reputation. Trump belittled his accusers and said that one of them “would not be his first choice.”
Throughout the presidential campaign, Trump has chastised his opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, for her alleged treatment of women who accused her husband of sexual assault.
In the late 1990s, President Clinton admitted to having a sexual dalliance with White House staffer, Monica Lewinsky.
