Porn star says Trump of­fered her US$10,000

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

WASH­ING­TON: An adult film ac­tress yes­ter­day be­came the lat­est woman to ac­cuse Don­ald Trump of un­wanted sex­ual ad­vances, say­ing the Repub­li­can can­di­date of­fered her US$10,000 (RM42,000) to come to his ho­tel room alone.

Jes­sica Drake is one of at least 11 women to have al­leged that the bil­lion­aire groped them, made in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­marks or forcibly kissed them.

Speak­ing dur­ing a Los An­ge­les news con­fer­ence ac­com­pa­nied by the high-pro­file dis­crim­i­na­tion lawyer Glo­ria Allred, Drake said she met Trump at a golf tour­na­ment in Lake Ta­hoe, Cal­i­for­nia in 2006.

“He flirted with me and in­vited me to walk along the golf course with him,” she said, adding he asked her to his ho­tel room.

She went along with two other women, Drake said.

Wear­ing pa­ja­mas when they en­tered, Trump “grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us with­out ask­ing per­mis­sion”.

He also asked what it was like to film pornog­ra­phy, Drake said.

Af­ter she re­turned to her room, Drake said, Trump called her ask­ing her to re­turn to his suite and in­vited her to a party.

“What do you want? How much?” she said Trump asked her.

Af­ter she de­clined, Drake said, she re­ceived another call ei­ther from Trump or another man of­fer­ing US$10,000 and use of Trump’s pri­vate plane to fly home to Los An­ge­les if she were to accept.

Trump’s cam­paign de­nied Drake’s al­le­ga­tions and claimed Demo­cratic ri­val Hil­lary Clin­ton’s team of be­ing be­hind the ac­cu­sa­tion in an at­tempt to de­fame Trump.

Trump also threat­ened to take le­gal ac­tion against all the “liars” that have claimed to be vic­tims of his sex­ual as­saults af­ter the elec­tions. – AFP
