Adult film ac­tress ac­cuses Trump of sex­ual mis­con­duct

The Myanmar Times - - World -

AN adult film ac­tress has be­came the lat­est woman to ac­cuse Don­ald Trump of un­wanted sex­ual ad­vances, say­ing the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of­fered her US$10,000 to come to his ho­tel room alone.

Jes­sica Drake is one of at least 11 women to have al­leged that the real es­tate 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, Ms Drake said she met Mr Trump at a golf tour­na­ment in Lake Ta­hoe, Cal­i­for­nia, in 2006.

“He flirted with me and in­vited me to walk along the golf course,” she said, adding that he asked her to his ho­tel room. She went along with two other women, Ms Drake said.

Wear­ing pa­ja­mas when they en­tered, Mr 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, Ms Drake said.

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

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

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

Mr Trump’s cam­paign de­nied Ms Drake’s al­le­ga­tions.

“This story is to­tally false and ridicu­lous,” it said. “Mr Trump does not know this per­son.”

Mr Trump has seen his cam­paign spi­ral down­ward in re­cent weeks af­ter a num­ber of women made al­le­ga­tions that he sex­u­ally as­saulted them – claims he again in­sisted were false.
