Several women have accused Donald Trump of lewd behavior since the Washington Post reported that he bragged to Billy Bush on a hot mic in 2005 that he kisses and gropes women. Trump has called the comments "locker room talk" and denied assaulting women.
1997 Miss Utah Temple Taggart told NBC News that Trump kissed her on the lips upon their first meeting. Trump denies it.
Former Miss Vermont Teen USA Mariah Billado told BuzzFeed that Trump walked in on her changing. “I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,'” she said. Trump bragged to Howard Stern that as a pageant owner, he can "sort of get away" with walking in on women: "You know, I'm inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good."
Jill Harth sued Trump in 1997, alleging sexual harassment. The suit says that while negotiating a business deal, Trump told Harth’s boyfriend, “You know, there’s going to be a problem … I’m very attracted to your girlfriend.”
Harth withdrew her suit as part of a settlement, according to the New York Times.
In the taped conversation with Billy Bush, Trump talked about how he "moved on" the married Nancy O’Dell "very heavily," and admitted that he tried to "f--- her." O'Dell responded: "No female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments."
On the tape, Billy Bush encourages Arianna Zucker to embrace Trump after Trump has told Bush that he might start kissing her -- unbeknownst to Zucker. When the tape was released, she said she wasn't especially surprised -- "not with that type of personality."
Kristin Anderson told the The Washington Post that she was sitting on a couch with friends at a New York City nightclub in the early ’90s when she suddenly felt someone’s hand reaching up her skirt and touching her through her underwear. After shoving the hand away, she fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her: It was Trump.
Rachel Crooks, 33, said she was working as a receptionist at a company housed in Trump Tower in 2005 when she met Trump -- who allegedly shook her hand, would not let go, and “kissed me directly on the mouth.”
People Magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff says Donald Trump physically attacked her around the time of his comments to Billy Bush in 2005, and that he forced himself on her in the same way he described in that conversation. His campaign denies it ever happened.
Former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos claimed Trump kissed her against her will and came on to her. Zervos recounted a an alleged encounter with Trump at the Beverly Hills Hotel, during which she said Trump kissed her “very aggressively,” placed his hand on her breast and thrust his genitals.
