Ever since video of the real estate mogul surfaced on Friday showing him bragging about how he could grab women’s genitals with impunity, more and more women have come forward to claim they were demeaned and touched inappropriately.
By late Wednesday evening the list of new allegations against Trump included:
Two Miss USA contestants who claimed Trump deliberately walked in on them when they were naked in a dressing room. Two women who allege Trump groped or kissed them without consent – one in the first-class seat of an aircraft. A claim by a woman that she was groped at a Trump event at his Mar-A-Lago estate in Florida.
A People magazine reporter who says Trump forced himself on her shortly before she was due to interview him and his wife in 2005. An incident in which Trump appears to sexualize a 10-year-old girl.
The encounter with the young girl surfaced in a video of a 1992 Entertainment Tonight Christmas special in which Trump appeared, according to CBS News. Trump was 46 at the time.
