Donald Trump Claims Sexual Assault Allegations Are 'Absolutely False'
Donald Trump denies he sexually assaulted multiple women.
Women in New York Times and People articles detailed accounts of Trump touching, groping and kissing them without their consent.
In the Times piece, a 74-year-old Manhattan woman named Jessica Leeds says more than three decades ago when she was a traveling business woman she sat next to Trump on a first-class flight to New York. According to Leeds, Trump lifted the armrest, grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.
Rachel Crooks was a 22-year-old when she worked as a receptionist at the Trump Tower in Manhattan when she ran into Trump outside an elevator. Crooks claims he kissed her on her cheeks, then directly on her mouth.
In the People story, writer Natasha Stoynoff recounts when she covered Donald and Melania's first wedding anniversary. Stoynoff says during a break in the interview Trump trapped her in a room, pushed her up against a wall, "forcing his tongue down my throat."
Trump tweeted, "Why didn't writer of twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the 'incident' in her story. Because it did not happen!"
On the Times story he said, "The phony story in the failing nytimes is a total fabrication. Written by same people as last discredited story on women. Watch!"
