Donald Trump claimed in the second presidential debate a few days ago that the tape recording of him speaking crudely about sexually assaulting a woman was just “locker room talk.” However, seven women have come forward and publicly accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting them in previous years.

The New York Times published a story featuring two women who said that Trump either groped or kissed them against their will.

A third woman told a Palm Beach Post reporter that Donald Trump grabbed her from behind at Mar-A-Lago in an inappropriate manner.

A writer for People magazine then came forward and said that she too had been assaulted. She claimed that Trump had grabbed and kissed her forcefully while she was interviewing him for a story related to his first year of marriage with Melania Trump.

Donald Trump has had a questionable history in regards to his treatment of women. Trump’s ex-wife and mother of three of his children, Ivana Trump, said in their divorce deposition that he raped her. She described the incident as a violent sexual assault.

Ivana Trump now says the story was “totally without merit.”

In several of the women’s claims, Trump did not wait for consent before grabbing them inappropriately.

Because he has been a prominent and powerful celebrity, women have been reluctant to come forward about the assaults.

Natasha Stoynoff, a writer for People, interviewed Donald Trump in the early 2000s. At first, she described her relationship with Donald and Melania Trump as “very friendly” and “professional.” That was before she traveled to Mar-A-Largo to interview Donald Trump about the couple celebrating their first anniversary.

Natasha claims that Trump leaned forward and kissed her during the middle of her interview about his marriage to Melania. Trump had taken her on a tour of their house, and he pushed the writer against a wall and forcefully kissed her.

“I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat.

“He was fast, taking me by surprise, and throwing me off balance. I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.”

The People writer even claimed that Donald then told her they were going to have an affair before a very pregnant Melania Trump walked into the room.

At the time, Natasha was so afraid to put her career in jeopardy that she kept her mouth shut about the incident, and she went on to publish the article as it was.

Rachel Crooks, one of the women who was interviewed by the New York Times, also alleged that Trump came onto her. Crooks said that she was working as a receptionist at a company with office space in Trump Tower. She met Trump in 2005. When she introduced herself, he kissed her, first on both cheeks and then on the mouth.

A few days later, Trump asked Rachel for her phone number and said it was because he wanted to give it to a modeling agency. Crooks’ sister and boyfriend at the time both confirmed their story to the Times.

Another woman, Jessica Leeds, also went to the Times and told reporters that Trump assaulted her on a plane in the early 1980s. Leeds, 74, alleged that Donald Trump tried to reach up her skirt and grabbed at her breasts.

Leeds said that she has only just recently told family and friends about the incident after finding out that he was running for president. However, she wasn’t going to go to the media until she heard Trump deny assaulting women during the debate on Sunday night.

The former Miss Utah in 1997, Temple Taggart, told the New York Times back in May that Donald Trump inappropriately kissed her on the mouth when she first met him.

“He kissed me directly on the lips. I thought, ‘Oh my God, gross.’ He was married to Marla Maples at the time.”

Temple Taggart also told the interviewer that Trump did the same with all of the contestants.

Trump actually responded to Taggart’s accusations back in May, saying “he is reluctant to kiss strangers on the lips.”

The woman who went to the Palm Beach Post, Mindy McGillivray, says the Donald Trump also grabbed her at Mar-A-Largo at an event back in 2005.

“This was a pretty good nudge. More of a grab. It was pretty close to the center of my butt. I was startled. I jumped.”

She said that watching Trump say that he did not assault women at the debate made her go to the media. When she saw him say that, she jumped up and yelled “You liar!”

Cassandra Searles, who was Miss Washington 2013, then went on Facebook and posted that Trump “treated us like cattle.” In a comment on her post, according to Yahoo News, she said that Donald Trump “grabbed my a**” and invited her up to his hotel room.

Yet another accuser, Jill Harth, told the Guardian back in July about her 1997 lawsuit, claiming that Trump harassed her and grabbed her against her will.

“He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again, and I had to physically say: ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’

“It was a shocking thing to have him do this because he knew I was with George, he knew they were in the next room. And how could he be doing this when I’m there for business?”

Harth claimed that Trump had sexually assaulted her on several other occasions as well. Harth’s lawsuit also includes accusations that Trump assaulted other women, including sneaking into the bedroom of another guest at Mar-A-Largo and groping her in her bed.

Trump’s response to Harth’s accusations was to say that Jill was “obsessed” with him. Harth later dropped the lawsuit due to other business priorities, and the allegations of sexual abuse were never proven in court.

Trump has continued to deny each of the seven women’s allegations that he sexually assaulted them.
