Donald Trump has rubbished Rachel Crooks claims

Donald Trump says the alleged encounter with Rachel Crooks never happened

Today he tweeted a two-parter, explaining why he couldn't possibly have kissed a woman against her will for two minutes in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago.

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]".

'It happened right by the elevators, ' she said, talking about an encounter at Trump Tower, where she was working as a secretary at a company Trump sometimes did business with.

Ms Crooks said he immediately took her face in his hands, and "started kissing me on one cheek, then the other cheek" on January 11, 2006. The incident lasted about two minutes, according to Crooks. Reasons not to doubt her story: This isn't the first time she's made this allegation. "Another False Accusation", Mr Trump tweeted.

Crooks recalled the alleged kiss in a group conversation witnessed by a Post reporter.

The women, who appear in a new documentary about the President's accusers - 16 Women and Donald Trump - called for Congress to conduct an ethics investigation into their allegations.

Trump asked why the Post hasn't published any stories on the women who took "money to make up stories" about him.

"You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them", Trump said to Billy Bush in the 2005 tape. "Only @FoxNews so reported", Trump was apparently referencing a December 2017 story from The Hill discussed on air on Fox News.

A number of women came forward to accuse Trump of sexual harassment during the 2016 presidential election campaign, all of which he has vehemently denied.

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!"

The article did describe a Trump accuser, Jill Harth, who had the approximately $30,000 remaining on her mortgage paid off by an unnamed donor.

"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".

His presidential campaign was roiled in its final days when the Post published audio from a 2005 taping of 'Access Hollywood, ' in which the future president told host Billy Bush that he was 'automatically attracted to beautiful women. "It's liars like you in politics that have prompted me to run for office myself", she wrote in the tweet, referring to her decision to challenge Republican Bill Reineke for his seat in the state legislature of Ohio.
