Don­ald groped me, says ex-Miss Fin­land

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

HELSINKI: An ex-Miss Fin­land has ac­cused US pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Don­ald Trump of grop­ing her in 2006 when she was rep­re­sent­ing the coun­try in the Miss Uni­verse beauty con­test.

Ninni Laak­so­nen told the Ilta- Sanomat news­pa­per the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee had grabbed her be­hind be­fore she ap­peared on a TV show in New York with other con­tes­tants.

“He re­ally grabbed my butt. I don’t think any­body saw it but I flinched and thought: ‘What is hap­pen­ing?’” she said.

The ac­cu­sa­tion fol­lows al­le­ga­tions of in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­duct by Trump from other women in the US which have put pres­sure on his cam­paign as he trails in opin­ion polls ahead of the Novem­ber 8 elec­tion. – Reuters
