In the aftermath of the 2005 Access Hollywood tape on which then-presidential candidate Donald Trump can be heard talking about groping and assaulting women, nearly two dozen women have come forward with details of their own sexual assault claims against Trump. They join a list of women who had already gone public with their claims — some of them in state and federal court — and include businesswomen, beauty pageant contestants, journalists, and women brought into Trump’s orbit by mere chance.
How many women have accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment? As of this writing, the total number is 25. The following is an alphabetical list of the accusers and their claims. It will be updated if and when any of the 25 women offer new information, or more women make allegations against Donald Trump.
Kristin Anderson told the Washington Post she was groped by Donald Trump in a Manhattan nightclub in the early 1990s. According to the Post‘s article, Anderson was “deep in conversation” with her friends and didn’t notice the person who’d taken the seat next to her on the sofa until “his fingers slid under her miniskirt, moved up her inner thigh and touched her vagina through her underwear.”
Immediately, she shoved the hand away — and recognized Trump. In the years that followed, though she’d been “very grossed out and weirded out,” Kristen and her friends simply chalked the incident up to “gross” behavior: “Okay, Donald is gross,” she explained. “We all know he’s gross. Let’s just move on.”
In the aftermath of the Access Hollywood tape, however, Anderson decided to come forward. (She added that she supported neither Trump nor Clinton in the 2016 election.) “It wasn’t a sexual come-on,” Anderson said, describing how her own incident was consistent with Trump’s casual attitude on the tape. “I don’t know why he did it. It was like just to prove that he could do it and nothing would happen. There was zero conversation. We didn’t even really look at each other. It was very random, very nonchalant on his part.”
Here’s a video of Kristin Anderson discussing her Donald Trump sexual harassment allegations with CNN’s Anderson Cooper in October of 2016:
Mariah Billado, who, as Miss Vermont, competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant, was one of five former beauty queens who disclosed Donald Trump’s behavior as pageant owner in a Buzzfeed article. Billado says that Trump walked into the dressing room before the event while the contestants — the youngest of whom were fifteen years old — were in the middle of dressing.
“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,'” said Billado, who noted that she supported neither Trump nor Clinton in the 2016 election.
Trump’s excuse, said Billado, was “Don’t worry ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
“I remember it shocking me,” Billado went on. “I barely let anybody except my sister see me getting dressed.” She added that she thought of Trump’s entrance and presence “was more of a pompous ‘I own this place’ rather than a perverted thing,” and that, when she told Trump’s daughter Ivanka about Donald coming into the dressing room, Ivanka replied, “Yeah, he does that.”
Lisa Boyne told the Huffington Post that Donald Trump was responsible for “the most offensive scene [she had] ever been a part of” when, at a dinner in 1996, Trump “paraded women in front of their table, looked under women’s skirts, and commented on whether they were wearing underwear.”
Boyne, then 25, lived in Manhattan and was good friends with Sonja Tremont — now Sonja Morgan, of The Real Housewives of New Jersey fame — and Tremont invited Boyne to dinner with Trump and modeling agent John Casablancas. The limousine ride to the restaurant, Boyne says, was dominated by Trump: “He was constantly talking about himself, who he was dating, who he was sleeping with, who he was trying to sleep with. I just remember feeling very surprised and upset.”
Then, when Casablancas arrived at the restaurant with a coterie of models, the situation deteriorated:
According to Boyne, the group was seated at a semi-circular table, with the women in the middle and Trump and Casablancas flanking either end. The women couldn’t get out of their seats without one of the men getting up ― which they refused to do. Instead, Boyne said, Trump insisted that the women walk across the table, allowing him to peer up their skirts while they did so. Trump “stuck his head right underneath their skirts,” Boyne said, and commented on whether they were wearing underwear and what their genitalia looked like.
Boyne explained that she came forward with her story to join the growing chorus of women raising sexual harassment allegations against Donald Trump — and to help give the allegations credibility.
“I met lots of famous, influential wealthy people with Sonja, and none of them were ever as vulgar, as disgusting, as rude, as sexist, such a low excuse for a human being that I’ve ever met,” she said. “I was so deeply offended, I felt that like with Bill Cosby, the more people that come forward, the more legitimacy the story will have.”
Lisa further discussed her claims of Donald Trump’s “cringeworthy upskirt leering” with attorney Lisa Bloom in November of 2016:
Crooks was one of two women featured in a New York Times article on new Donald Trump sexual harassment allegations following Trump’s denial of any and all impropriety at the second 2016 presidential debate. Crooks told the Times she had an encounter with Trump outside a Trump Tower elevator early one morning in 2005, when Crooks was 22 years old:
Aware that her company did business with Mr. Trump, she turned and introduced herself. They shook hands, but Mr. Trump would not let go, she said. Instead, he began kissing her cheeks. Then, she said, he “kissed me directly on the mouth.”
It didn’t feel like an accident, she said. It felt like a violation.
“It was so inappropriate,” Ms. Crooks recalled in an interview. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”
Shaken, Ms. Crooks returned to her desk and immediately called her sister, Brianne Webb, in the small town in Ohio where they grew up, and told her what had happened
Here’s Rachel talking about her Donald Trump sexual harassment allegations with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota in December of 2017:
Tasha Dixon competed in the 2001 Miss USA pageant as Miss Arizona when, she says, Donald Trump entered the contestants’ dressing room specifically to ogle and harass them. Dixon, who was 18 at the time, described the scene for CBS Los Angeles:
Our first introduction to [Trump] was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half naked changing into our bikinis. He just came strolling right in. There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Other girls were naked….[It was awkward to have] the owner come waltzing in when we were naked or half naked in a very physically vulnerable position and then to have the pressure of the people that worked for him telling us to go fawn all over him, go walk up to him, talk to him, get his attention.
Dixon further stated that she believes Trump, who owned or co-owned the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA pageants from 1996 to 2015, used the pageants simply as a way to exercise power over beauty queens.
“I’m telling you,” she said, “Donald Trump owned the pageant for the reasons to utilize his power to get around beautiful women,” she added. “Who do you complain to? He owns the pageant. There’s no one to complain to. Everyone there works for him.”
Drake, a porn star and sex educator with a sizeable social media following, leveled accusations of “uncontrollable misogyny” against Donald Trump in late October of 2016. At a Los Angeles press conference, Drake described an encounter she had with Trump at a Lake Tahoe golf tournament a decade earlier:
Trump asked her for her phone number and invited her to his suite the night they met in 2006. She went and brought along two other women to accompany her because she said she did not feel comfortable attending alone.
“He grabbed each of us tightly, in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission,” said Drake, who is being represented by Gloria Allred, the women’s rights attorney who has represented other women — including two other Trump accusers — in high-profile sexual assault cases.
Feeling uncomfortable, Drake said she left after about 30 to 45 minutes but later received a phone call from one of Trump’s representatives, who invited her to his room alone. Drake declined.
According to Drake, Trump himself then got on the phone with her, asking her to come back and to go out to dinner or attend a party with him, but she again declined.
He then asked, “What do you want? How much?” Drake said.
After she turned down his invite, she said he eventually offered her $10,000 and use of his private jet if she accepted.
Jill Harth in 1996, one year before she filed suit against Donald Trump for groping and “relentless sexual harassment”
Jill Harth, along with her then-boyfriend George Houraney, worked with Trump to promote an Atlantic City beauty pageant in the early 90s. Trump stared at Harth throughout Houraney’s presentation and aloud if the two were sleeping together. The next night, the three had dinner together; according to the New York Times‘s report on testimony Harth would later give against Trump, Trump “name-dropped throughout that dinner, when he wasn’t groping me under the table.”
Harth added, “Let me just say, this was a very traumatic thing working for him.”
Harth’s testimony came in a lawsuit accusing Trump of unfair business practices. The two settled that suit — but one of the requirements was that Harth drop a separate lawsuit she’d filed accusing Trump of, per WNYC, attempted rape.
WNYC’s interview with Jill Harth also quotes the original legal complaint Harth filed against Trump, detailing the “violation occurring at [Trump’s] Palm Beach estate”:
Donald Trump forcibly removed you, the plaintiff, to a bedroom, whereupon defendant — that is, Donald Trump — subjected plaintiff to defendant’s unwanted sexual advances, which included touching the plaintiff’s private parts, in an act constituting attempted rape.
Cathy Heller told People accused Donald Trump of “forcibly trying to kiss her” after meeting her at a Mar-a-Lago Mother’s Day brunch in the late 1990s. As Heller described the scene, she offered her hand for a shake, but he “took it and pulled her toward him to kiss her on the mouth.”
When she “pulled away and said no,” Heller says, Trump responded angrily, saying “Oh, come on,” and “hold[ing] her very tight to kiss her.” Though Heller was “caught…off-guard and off-balance” — in part because she was wearing heels — she was “able to turn [her] head a little, so he didn’t get [her] whole mouth.”
In a second interview with The Guardian, Heller said that while Trump’s unwanted kiss left her “angry and shaken,” Trump appeared “pissed” and said “He couldn’t believe a woman would pass up the opportunity.”
Samantha Holvey competed in the 2006 Miss USA pageant as Miss North Carolina. The day after Hughes’ comments to Buzzfeed, Holvey told CNN she and the other contestants were inspected by Trump before the event and that the experience left her “the dirtiest I felt in my entire life”:
“He would step in front of each girl,” Holvey explained, “and look you over from head to toe like we were just meat, we were just sexual objects, that we were not people. You know when a gross guy at the bar is checking you out? It’s that feeling.”
Holvey, who at the time was a 20-year-old student at a private Southern Baptist college, called Trump’s actions “disgusting.” She added, “I had no desire to win when I understood what it was all about.”
Here’s Samantha talking about Donald Trump’s treatment of beauty pageant contestants with CNN’s Don Lemon in October of 2016:
Victoria Hughes was 19 years old when she competed in the 1997 Miss USA pageant as Miss New Mexico. Last October, she became the fifth contestant to come forward with details of Donald Trump’s improper behavior at the event, telling Buzzfeed that Trump’s dressing room appearance was “the most inappropriate time to meet us all for the first time.”
Hughes, who said she intended to vote for Hillary Clinton, elaborated on the experience:
We actually never once saw him during the two-week period [of rehearsals] until he came into the dressing room prior to the show….I was the eldest delegate at age 19 and was in the very back of the large dressing room. I recall chaperones saying that we had a visitor and to get covered up. The black curtains opened and in walks Mr. Trump smiling. He wished us all good luck, did not stay very long and left. As teenagers, it no doubt caught us off guard, as the timing of the entrance could’ve been better and less awkward for us all.
Juliet Huddy, a former Fox News anchor, told the “Mornin’!!! With Bill Schulz” podcast that Donald Trump tried to kiss her in a Trump Tower elevator in 2005, shortly after marrying Melania Trump. The podcast itself is behind a paywall; the following description comes from Page Six:
He took me for lunch at Trump Tower, just us two. He said goodbye to me in an elevator while his security guy was there, rather than kiss me on the cheek he leaned in to kiss me on the lips. I wasn’t offended, I was kind of like, ‘Oh my god’….I was surprised that he went for the lips. But I didn’t feel threatened….He took me out to lunch to talk about maybe me doing something with The Apprentice. He used to watch Fox & Friends, the show I was hosting on the weekend. Whatever, everything was fine. It was a weird moment. He never tried anything after that, and I was never alone with him.
Page Six further notes that when Trump later appeared on Fox & Friends while Huddy was hosting, he said, “I hit on her but she blew me off.”
Ninni Laaksonen, Miss Finland 2006, told Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that Donald Trump “grabb[ed] her bottom” in July of that year. According to The Telegraph, which translated Laaksonen’s interview, the incident took place immediately before Laaksonen and three other Miss Universe contestants were to appear alongside Trump on The Late Show with David Letterman:
Before the show we were photographed outside the building. Trump stood right next to me and suddenly he squeezed my butt. He really grabbed my butt. I don’t think anybody saw it but I flinched and thought: ‘What is happening?’…Somebody told me [earlier] that Trump liked me because I looked like Melania when she was younger. It left me disgusted.
Here’s Nikki Laaksonen’s introduction alongside Donald Trump on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2006:
Jessica Leeds was the second of two women — along with Rachel Crooks — who presented new Donald Trump sexual harassment allegations to the New York Times after Trump denied all wrongdoing at the second 2016 presidential debate. Leeds described an out-of-nowhere sexual assault she suffered at Trump’s hands while seated next to him on a plane in the early 1980s.
Leeds was a businesswoman for a paper company at the time. She had been seated in coach. But when a flight attendant offered her an empty seat in first-class, Leeds — who had never before flown first-class — took advantage of the offer, and found herself next to Trump.
He introduced himself and shook her hand. They exchanged pleasantries, and Mr. Trump asked her if she was married. She was divorced, and told him so.
Later, after their dinner trays were cleared, she said, Mr. Trump raised the armrest, moved toward her and began to grope her. Ms. Leeds said she recoiled….According to Ms. Leeds, Mr. Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.
“He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”
She fled to the back of the plane. “It was an assault,” she said.
Leeds recently spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper about her experience as a victim of Donald Trump’s groping:
Temple Taggart McDowell
Temple Taggart McDowell as Miss Utah in a 1997 appearance alongside Donald Trump
Temple Taggart was 21 years old and competing as Miss Utah in the 1997 Miss USA pageant. (“McDowell” is Temple’s married name; she wasn’t yet married at the time.) Upon meeting her, she says, Trump “turned to me and embraced me and gave me a kiss on the lips.” Taggart’s response, according to NBC News, was similar to those of the other beauty pageant contestants: confusion, discomfort, and awkwardness — not least of all because of the power Trump held:
“I remember being shocked” by the encounter at the Miss USA pageant, McDowell said, adding: “I would have just thought to shake somebody’s hand, and that was his first response with me.”
“I remember feeling kind of embarrassed, like wanting to turn and wipe my mouth, like, ‘What just happened?'” she said.
But “because he’s the pageant owner, you’re trying to make a good first impression,” McDowell said, so while the encounter made her uncomfortable, “I just kind of shooed it off and kind of went along.”
At an unspecified later date, Taggart met Trump at Trump Tower following his invitation. “He again embraced and kissed her on the lips,” NBC reported, “this time in front of two pageant chaperones and a receptionist.”
Melinda McGillivray accompanied photographer Ken Davidoff to assist with photographing a Ray Charles concert at Mar-a-Lago in 2003. The Palm Beach Post reported that, while there, McGillivray was groped by Trump — an assertion that Davidoff says he recalls vividly. “Donald just grabbed my ass!” is what he remembers McGillivray shouting.
McGillivray described the scene thusly:
Ray already performed. He’s ready to leave. He’s saying his goodbyes to everyone.
All of a sudden I felt a grab, a little nudge. I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly. I quickly turned back, facing Ray Charles, and I’m stunned.
McGillivray said she remembers saying to herself, ‘OK, am I going to say something now and make a scene or be quiet?’ I chose to stay quiet.’
When asked by the PBP if what she felt could have been accidental, McGillivray was unequivocal: “This was a pretty good nudge. More of a grab. vIt was pretty close to the center of my butt. I was startled. I jumped.”
McGillivray spoke to the Associated Press about her decision to come forward with new Donald Trump sexual harassment allegations following his full denial in the second 2016 presidential debate:
Jennifer Murphy, a contestant on Season 4 of The Apprentice, told Grazia Daily that Trump “kissed [her] on the lips after a job interview” shortly after Trump had married his third wife, Melania:
He walked me to the elevator, and I said goodbye. I was thinking ‘Oh, he’s going to hug me’, but when he pulled my face in and gave me a smooch. I was like ‘Oh-kay.’ I didn’t know how to act. I was just a little taken aback and probably turned red. And I then I get into the elevator and thought ‘Huh, Donald Trump just kissed me on the lips.’
Murphy, who told Grazia that she intended to vote for Trump, added, “I was very taken aback by that at the time.”
Cassandra Searles competed in the 2013 Miss USA pageant as Miss Washington. In June of 2016, shortly before Donald Trump officially became the Republican Party’s nominee for president, Searles tagged 42 of her fellow beauty queens in a Facebook post and wrote that Trump “treated [them] like cattle” and “lined up” the contestants “so he could get a closer look at his property.”
Here’s a screenshot of Cassandra Searles’ since-deleted Facebook post, via Yahoo:
Additionally, Rolling Stone reported that Searles got more specific with a comment in the now-deleted thread: “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story,” Searles wrote, “about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room.”
Natasha Stoynoff, a writer for People, says she was sexually assaulted by Donald Trump in 2005 while at Mar-a-Lago to interview Trump and his wife Melania for a feature on their marriage’s one-year anniversary. Stoynoff, who had known both Donald and Melania in her capacity as a writer, said that Donald offered to give Stoynoff a tour of the mansion, and that the assault occurred after Trump escorted her into one especially “tremendous” room:
We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.
Now, I’m a tall, strapping girl who grew up wrestling two giant brothers. I even once sparred with Mike Tyson. It takes a lot to push me. But Trump is much bigger — a looming figure — and 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 butler informed us that Melania would be down momentarily, and it was time to resume the interview.
Shortly thereafter, during the interview itself, Stoynoff says Trump told her “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you? Have you ever been to Peter Luger’s for steaks? I’ll take you. We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you.”
After Stoynoff published her account, People followed up with a story on six people who corroborated Stoynoff’s account, detailing her conversations with them in the immediate aftermath of the assault.
Bridget Sullivan competed in the 2000 Miss USA pageant as Miss New Hampshire. She told Buzzfeed that Trump came through the contestants’ dressing room unannounced, saying, “The time that he walked through the dressing rooms was really shocking. We were all naked.”
Sullivan also spoke of Trump’s propensity for touching, describing him as a “creepy uncle”: “He’d hug you just a little low on your back,” she explained, “[giving you] “a squeeze that your creepy uncle would.”
Ivana Trump, Donald’s second wife, accused him of raping her in a contested passage from Harry Hurt III’s 1993 book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald Trump. As recounted by the Daily Beast, Donald allegedly assaulted and raped Ivana following a visit to a plastic surgeon — one Ivana had recommended — for surgery to cover up a bald spot:
“Your f*cking doctor has ruined me!” Trump cried.
What followed was a “violent assault,” according to Lost Tycoon. Donald held back Ivana’s arms and began to pull out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, as if to mirror the pain he felt from his own operation. He tore off her clothes and unzipped his pants.
“Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified….It is a violent assault,” Hurt writes. “According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, ‘he raped me.’”
Following the incident, Ivana ran upstairs, hid behind a locked door, and remained there “crying for the rest of night.” When she returned to the master bedroom in the morning, he was there.
“As she looks in horror at the ripped-out hair scattered all over the bed, he glares at her and asks with menacing casualness: ‘Does it hurt?’” Hurt writes.
Before the book’s publication, Donald Trump’s lawyers arranged for a “Notice to the Reader” to be printed on the first page, containing the following statement from Ivana:
During a deposition given by me in connection with my matrimonial case, I stated that my husband had raped me….[O]n one occasion during 1989, Mr. Trump and I had marital relations in which he behaved very differently toward me than he had during our marriage. As a woman, I felt violated, as the love and tenderness, which he normally exhibited towards me, was absent. I referred to this as a ‘rape,’ but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense.
The Daily Beast also reported on some of the available “legal documents surrounding the contract dispute over the Trumps’ prenuptual agreement.” In those documents, Ivana’s lawyers said that, during the three years before their 1992 divorce, Donald “has increasingly verbally abused and demeaned [Ivana] so as to obtain her submission to his wishes and desires,” and has “humiliated and verbally assaulted” her.
Karena Virginia says Donald Trump touched her breast while Virginia, then 27, was waiting for a car to pick her up outside the 1998 US Open.
“I knew who he was,” Virginia said, “but I had never met him. He was with a few other men. I was quite surprised when I overheard him talking to the other men about me. He said, ‘Hey, look at this one, we haven’t seen her before. Look at those legs.’ As though I was an object, rather than a person.”
Virginia, who would go on to explain that she spent years blaming herself for wearing a short dress and heels that day, says that Trump then “walked up to me and reached his right arm and grabbed my right arm, then his hand touched the right inside of my breast. I was in shock. I flinched….[He asked me] Don’t you know who I am? Don’t you know who I am?”
Summer Zervos with attorney Gloria Allred at the Creative Coalition’s Inaugural Ball for the Arts in January 2017
Summer Zervos, a contestant on Season 5 of The Apprentice, says Donald Trump groped her breasts and thrust himself toward her during a 2007 meeting at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Zervos explained that the two had initially met at Trump’s office when Zervos reached out for business advice after being fired from the show, and that Trump “greeted her with a kiss on the lips.” Following that encounter, and Trump’s claim that he would “love to have [Zervos] work for him,” the two arranged to meet again in Los Angeles, Zervos’ home, whenever Trump would next be in the city.
When the two met in Beverly Hills, Trump “started kissing [her] open-mouthed as he was pulling me towards him,” before things became more aggressive. From People:
She claimed that she walked away, taking a seat across the room before he beckoned her to sit next to him on a love seat. “I complied. He then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast. I pulled back and walked to another part of the room. He then walked up, he grabbed my hand and walked me into the bedroom.”
Zervos said that she walked out of the bedroom, but Trump turned her around and asked her to “lay down and watch telly telly.”
“He put me in an embrace and I tried to push him away,” she alleged. “I pushed his chest to put space between us and I said ‘Come on man, get real.’ He repeated my words back to me, ‘Get real’ as he began thrusting his genitals. He tried to kiss me again and with my hand still on his chest I said ‘Dude, you’re trippin’ right now,’ attempting to make it clear that I was not interested.”
Following Trump’s assertion that the incident never happened and that Zervos is a “liar” — as is all of Trump’s other accusers — Zervos sued Trump for defamation. As part of her case, Zervos’ attorney Gloria Allred has subpoenaed all Trump campaign documents pertaining to “any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” You can read Summer Zervos’ lawsuit against Donald Trump here.

A friend of CNN anchor Erin Burnett says Donald Trump tried to kiss her before a business meeting in 2010:
Trump took Tic Tacs, suggested I take them also. He then leaned in, catching me off guard, and kissed me almost on lips. I was really freaked out….After (the meeting), Trump asked me to come into his office alone. Was really unsure what to do….Figured I could handle myself. Anyway, once in his office he kept telling me how special I am and gave me his cell, asked me to call him. I ran the hell out of there.
Though the friend wishes to remain anonymous, Burnett has discussed the incident on-air several times:
Wow. Erin Burnett says Trump popped a tic tac and tried to kiss a friend she knows https://t.co/GsYV2Y1upG

Anonymous Woman #2
A contestant in the 2001 Miss USA pageant who wishes to remain anonymous told The Guardian that Trump “deliberately” walked in on herself and another contestant when the two were naked and dressing for a rehearsal:
Just before he entered, the former contestant said, she heard the security detail outside the dressing room tell someone approaching the door that the women inside were naked.
“Mr Trump just barged right in, didn’t say anything, stood there and stared at us,” she recalled. Trump’s attitude, she said, seemed to be: “I can do this because I can.”
“He didn’t walk in and say, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, I was looking for someone,’” she continued. “He walked in, he stood and he stared. He was doing it because he knew that he could.”
A federal case against Donald Trump involves a Jane Doe who says that Trump and former financial manager Jeffrey Epstein raped her during a 1994 party at Epstein’s house when she was 13 years old. (In 2008, Epstein was found guilty of soliciting a minor for prostitution. His personal defense, upon finishing his sentence, was “I’m a sex offender, not a predator.”)
According to the case, the girl had been “enticed by promises of money and a modeling career to attend a series of parties, with other similarly situated minor females, held at a New York City residence that was being used by Defendant Jeffrey Epstein.” Trump allegedly attended four of these parties. It was at the fourth party that the rape is said to have occurred:
Defendant Trump initiated sexual contact with Plaintiff at four different parties. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied Plaintiff to a bed, exposed himself to Plaintiff, and then proceeded to forcibly rape Plaintiff. During the course of this savage sexual attack, Plaintiff loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but with no effect. Defendant Trump responded to Plaintiff’s pleas by violently striking Plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.
