This is definitely not the first time that the 45th American president; President Donald Trump will be facing allegations of rape and sexual misconducts. Although before now, he had successfully dismissed all of the allegations which include ogling, harassment, groping, and rape as “fabricated” with promises to sue all of his accusers, this most recent case of allegation, with proof all around the internet might eventually be the one to bring him down.
Here is a list of 23 women who once accused Donald Trump of sexual misconducts
In 2016, Jessica Leeds accused the president Donald Trump of having his hand up her skirt and groping her without her consent while they were seated next to each other on a flight in the late 1970s.
“He was like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.”
Trump responded to the allegation during a rally in 2016 stating that Jessica Leeds was not the kind of woman to even attract him in the first place.
He said “People that are willing to say, ‘Oh, I was with Donald Trump in 1980, I was sitting with him on an airplane, and he went after me,'” Trump said. “Believe me, she would not be my first choice.”
Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s own wife; first wife and the mother of his three eldest children also accused him of rape.
During their 1990 divorce deposition, Ivana Trump accused her Trump, her ex-husband of raping her in 1989.
According to Ivana, Trump attacked her after a doctor she had recommended to him ran a painful “scalp reduction” procedure on him. She said he had her clothes torn, yanked out her hair, and then forcefully penetrated her for the first time in more than 16 months.
In 1993, Trump again denied this allegation stating that it was “obviously false” Later in 2005, at a revisit of the case, Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, argued that Trump could not have raped Ivana on the premise that “you cannot rape your spouse.”
Mariah Billado and Victoria Hughes
Mariah Billado and Victoria Hughes, two Miss Teen USA contestants accused Trump of barging into them while in their dressing rooms. And while confronted, he said “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
This particular allegation met a different reaction from Trump as he admitted to commiting it.
In an interview with radio host; Howard Stern in April 2005, he disclosed that he regularly took walks into contestants’ dressing rooms while women were unclothed. This occurred during preparation for beauty pageant shows.
“I’ll go backstage before a show and everyone’s getting dressed and ready and everything else. And you know, no men are anywhere. And I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant,” he said. “You know they’re standing there with no clothes. And you see these incredible-looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that.”
Kristin Anderson, is a photographer. She was once a model, and she accused Trump of groping through her skirt, getting past her underwear, and reaching for her vagina at a New York City nightclub in the early 1990s without her consent .
Kristen Anderson was then in her, and stated that there was no prior relations or communication between her and Trump before the unconsented event that occurred.
“So, the person on my right who, unbeknownst to me at that time was Donald Trump, put their hand up my skirt. He did touch my vagina through my underwear, absolutely. And as I pushed the hand away and I got up and I turned around and I see these eyebrows, very distinct eyebrows, of Donald Trump,” she told The Washington Post in October 2016.
In October 2016, Trump disbanded her claims, stating that she just wanted publicity.
Jill Harth accused Trump of forcefully hitting her against a wall, and putting his hand up her skirt, and kissing her at a dinner at his Mar-a-Lago resort in the early 1990s. She was then a businesswoman and had to work with Trump.
In her story,
“He was relentless,” she told the New York Times . “I didn’t know how to handle it. I would go away from him and say I have to go to the restroom. It was the escape route.”
In 1997, Harth had sued Trump for sexual harassment. Hicks, the spokeswoman to the president stated that
“Mr. Trump denies each and every statement made by Ms. Harth.”
Cathy Heller said was out on a Mother’s Day brunch with her husband, children, and in-laws at Mar-a-Lago in the 1990s when a man; Trump unexpectedly approached her table, he ran a quick introduction of himself, and went on to forcibly kissed her.
“He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” she said, and added that she was “angry and shaken” as a result of the incident.
This allegation was denied on the grounds that such couldn’t have happened in public.
“There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother’s Day at Mr. Trump’s resort,” Jason Miller said. “It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades.”
Tasha Dixon and Bridget Sullivan
The case of this duo was again the case of barging in on beauty pageants.
Both ladies were Miss USA contestants in 2001. They said Trump walked into their dressing rooms, while that were off-robes, and ogled them.
“He just came strolling right in,”Dixon said. “There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless, other girls were naked.”
According to the girls, there was no one to complain to because Trump owned the pageant and everyone employed there reported to him.
Bridget Sullivan said:
“The time that he walked through the dressing rooms was really shocking. We were all naked,” Sullivan said, comparing Trump to a “creepy uncle.” “He’d hug you just a little low on your back.”
Donald Trump denied their claims, calling them politically motivated fabrications.
Natasha is a reporter at the People magazine. She took to a column of the magazine in October 2016 sharing about how Trump had sexually assaulted her in 2005 at Mar-a-Lago.
Stoynoff explained that she was reporting a story on Trump’s second marriage to commemorate the couple’s first year of marriage. She was at their Florida estate with Donald Trump and his new pregnant wife, Melania.
She explained that while Melania was changing clothes for a photoshoot, Donald Trump decided to pass time by showing her a “tremendous” room at the resort.
“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat,”Have you ever been to Peter Luger’s for steaks? I’ll take you. We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you,” he allegedly said.
Trump again denied the allegations.
Lisa Boyne, explained that she attended a 1996 dinner with Donald Trump and John Casablancas, a modeling agent. At the dinner, she explained that the other women in attendance were asked to walk iver a table to exit the party. And as the women walked, Boyne, seated close to Trump explained that Donald Trump looked up their skirts and commented on their underwear and genitals, and even asked her for suggestions on which of them he should sleep with.
Hicks, Domald Trump’s spokeswoman again denied Boyne’s allegations. “Mr. Trump never heard of this woman and would never do that.”
Jessica Drake also joined the queue of accusers with her claim that Trump grabbed and kissed her without permission and still made attempts at offering her money to accept a private invitation to his penthouse hotel room in Lake Tahoe in 2006.
Drake said.”I understand that I may be called a liar or an opportunist, but I will risk that in order to stand in solidarity with women who share similar accounts that span many, many years.”
Trump discarded her claims calling it “total fiction” and implied that Drake was accustomed to being “grabbed” because she is a porn actress.
The former contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice.” Shared that in 2007, Donald Trump assaulted her at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
“He then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast,” she said. “I pulled back and walked to another part of the room. He then walked up, grabbed my hand, and pulled me into the bedroom. I walked out.” She also said that Trump thrust himself on her before she left the room.
Donald Trump, just like every other allegation, denied this, but Zervos sued Trump for defamation after he accused her of lying about the allegations.
Donald Trump stated that:
“I vaguely remember Ms. Zervos as one of the many contestants on ‘The Apprentice’ over the years,” Trump said in a statement. “To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life. In fact, Ms. Zervos continued to contact me for help, emailing my office on April 14 of this year asking that I visit her restaurant in California.”
Cassandra Searles was the contestant for the state of Washington at the 2013 Miss USA pageant. She explained how ill treated she and the other ladies were during the contest.
She said that Donald Trump treated herself and other female Miss USA contestants “like cattle” and had them “lined up so he could get a closer look at his property.”
She added that:
“He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room,” she added.
