Adult film actress accuses Trump of sexual misconduct
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.
