Trump tweets denial of woman's claim he kissed her without consent

Trump tweets denial of woman's claim he kissed her without consent”

President Trump is lashing out at a woman who claims he once forcibly kissed her, saying it "Never happened!"

In the article, Crooks doesn't say it happened in the lobby of Trump Tower, but outside her company's offices.

The president, referencing a report by the Washington Post detailing Rachel Crooks' account of him kissing her outside an elevator in January 2006, said he didn't know her and "to the best of knowledge, never met" Crooks.

"He started kissing me on one cheek, then the other cheek".

"He was talking to me in between kisses, asking where I was from, or if I wanted to be a model", she explained. "The whole thing probably lasted two minutes, maybe less".

A front-page feature in Tuesday's Washington Post recounts Rachel Crooks' experiences since she first told her story in the months before the 2016 presidential election. "Another False Accusation", Mr Trump tweeted.

However Trump, who married his wife Melania a year before the alleged encounter took place, has now responded, using Twitter to issue a full and frank denail.

Wednesday is the last day of an appeal for funding to come forward at the Kuwait conference. The Islamic Development Bank also pledged $500 million toward reconstruction in Iraq.

In December, when White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that multiple "eyewitnesses" had denied the allegations against Trump, TPM followed up and asked for more information.

Crooks moved to New York City from OH in 2005, chasing dreams of working in fashion and living in a skyscraper, and took a job working for Bayrock, an investment firm in Trump Tower, Eli Saslow reports for the Post.

Crooks, one of 19 women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct, has repeatedly spoken out about her experience, but says she feels forgotten because of how little of an impact her story has had. Just kiss. I don't even wait.

"Grab them by the p--y", Trump said.

Or the email she sent a few days after that to another relative: "Ah yes, the Donald kiss...very creepy man, let me tell you!"

Fox News reported her standard terms require clients to pay her commissions as high as 33 percent if she sells their stories to media outlets.

"The people of this country, at a decisive election, supported President Trump", Sanders said, "and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process". How many state reps get profiles in the Washington Post, let alone Cosmo, to help tout their candidacy? Trump tweeted. "One had her home mortgage paid off!"
