Trump in Twitter spat with woman who accused him of sexual harassment

  • Woman, 24, and her boyfriend are ordered off a £400

Crooks, who was 22 at the time, is one of almost two dozen women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

Crooks called Trump's bluff Tuesday after the president claimed in a series of tweets that he doesn't know Crooks and had never met her - referring to the existence of video footage as proof that Crooks is lying.

In Tuesday's Washington Post story, she offered as evidence of the encounter in the form of an email she sent her mom later that day on January 11, 2006. Crooks was 22 years old at that time and was working in a real estate firm as a receptionist in the Trump Tower.

Rachel Crooks, 35, told the Post that in 2006, Trump "took hold of my hand and held me in place like this", squeezing the sides of a glass of water. 'He started kissing me on one cheek, then the other cheek. "Americans are really upset with politics as usual, and I want to be a voice for them". He wouldn't let go of my hand, and then he went right in and started kissing me on the lips'.

And yet Trump appeared to generically verify her story in the infamous Access Hollywood tapes when he told Billy Bush: "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]".

She said the incident lasted around two minutes. She's been telling her story publicly since the fall of 2016, and the page one story in today's Washington Post contains little new detail. "Let's clear this up for everyone", she wrote. After going public with her story in the fall of 2016 on the eve of the election, she is now running for the state Legislature in OH as a Democrat. Trump said right out that it never happened and denied knowing the woman or ever meeting her.

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

Trump endorses Mitt Romney's bid for Senate seat
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to offer surprising support for a regular opponent on Monday night. Romney's statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made about the president.

Trump himself pushed back on Tuesday, enlarging the story by tweeting about it.

The president also wondered over Twitter why the Washington Post doesn't report about women taking money to make up stories about him.

Trump is being accused by 19 women of sexual misconduct.

He would not say why he made the payment, but Daniels went on record in the past claiming that she carried on a months-long affair with Trump just after First Lady Melania Trump gave birth to their son Barron.

Trump famously suggested he touched women without their consent in a 2005 tape that surfaced ahead of the 2016 election.

The White House responded with a list of three people.

"I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her", Trump said in comments he later described as nothing more than "locker room talk".
