On Friday, two additional women made allegations of sexual assault against Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump. Kristi Anderson, claimed that he slid his hand under her skirt while Summer Zervos, a former "Apprentice" contestant said that Trump kissed and grabbed her in 2007.
Trump shoved his hand up my skirt, says Anderson
Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Kristi Anderson, said that she was with her friends at a nightclub in the 1990s when someone suddenly shoved their hand up her skirt. Later, she recognized the man to be the Republican presidential candidate. Anderson says that she had never met or spoken to Trump before the incident happened. According to her, she never thought much about it then since she did not consider mental abuse or manipulation as a form of assault.
Trump kissed me twice on the lips, says Zervos
In a separate incident, Zervos, a former "Apprentice" contestant said that he kissed her on the lips twice. Earlier, Zervos had claimed that Trump had touched her breast and kissed her aggressively. Zervos made the damning allegations during a press conference organized by Gloria Allred, a women rights attorney who has represented other women in sexual assault cases.
Zervos claims that the incident happened when she contacted him concerning employment opportunity in Trump’s Organization but was asked to meet him privately in Beverly Hills. Zervos says that during the meeting, he kissed her and said he would love to work with her.
Trump denies the allegations
During a rally on Friday, the Republican presidential candidate denied Anderson’s allegations and termed them "false" and "nonsensical". Trump argued that since he rarely sits alone, there was no way he could have made such moves without the other people noticing what he was doing.
According to him, the media gave Gloria Allred the same weight as the president of the United States and treated her unfounded allegations as facts without taking time to verify them. Trump says that such actions show that the system is broken.
Trump’s denial of Anderson’s accusations come hard on the heels of other accusations made by several women against the Republican candidate this week. The women claim that Trump groped or kissed them without their consent. #Election2016
