Porn star says Trump offered her US$10,000
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
