Two women tell the New York Times Donald Trump touched them inappropriately


WASHINGTON (AP) – The New York Times has published interviews with two women who say they were touched inappropriately by Donald Trump without their permission.

The Times says Jessica Leeds of New York told the newspaper she encountered Trump on an airline flight three decades ago. Leeds says Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.

Rachel Crooks of Ohio told the newspaper she met Trump at Trump Tower in 2005. Crooks says Trump kissed her “directly on the mouth” against her will.

The Times reports both women told others about what happened with Trump.

Trump denies the accusations. He tells the Times, “None of this ever took place.”

Trump’s presidential campaign has been reeling since the release Friday of a 2005 videotape in which he is heard talking about grabbing women’s genitals.
