President Donald Trump has denied allegations of sexual misconduct by a woman who said he forcibly kissed her when she worked at Trump Tower in New York.
Rachel Crooks, who initially came forward during the 2016 presidential election campaign, is one of over a dozen women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, although she said it happened over a decade ago.
Crooks had said Trump repeatedly kissed her on the cheeks and mouth during an introductory conservation when she was a 22-year-old receptionist at Trump Tower.
However Trump in a tweet wrote, “A woman I don’t know and, to the best of my knowledge, never met.
“She is on the FRONT PAGE of the Fake News Washington Post saying I kissed her for two minutes in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago.
“Never happened! Who would do this in a public space with live security.’’
