Nine women are putting faces to those Donald Trump himself claims to have kissed (or worse) without asking over the years.
Trump’s misogynistic ways have been well-documented throughout his campaign, from the New York Times article on how he treats female co-workers, to repeatedly using terms like “slob” and “fat pig.” But nothing compares to the allegations that came out after Trump’s 2005 comments were released last week.
"When you're a star, [women] let you do it,” Trump says in the recording. “...Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."
Below, Revelist has compiled the accounts of women who say Trump kissed, groped, and even raped them against their will. Trump’s campaign denies them all.
2013 - Cassandra Searles
Searles, a former Miss Washington, interacted with Trump frequently over the course of the Miss USA 2013 pageant. In a Facebook status posted in June, Searles called Trump a misogynist, and accused him of treating the contestants like cattle. In the comments section, she accused him of grabbing her butt repeatedly and inviting her to his hotel room.
It’s unclear whether Searles reported the assault previously, but several other contestants chimed in on her post, adding “I literally have nightmares about that process,” and “[he] scares me so much.”
2007 — Summer Zervos
Zervos had recently finished her stint on season five of the Apprentice when she says Trump made unwanted sexual advances toward her. The two arranged a business meeting shortly after she left the show to discuss career options.
When Zervos arrived for the meeting at the Beverly Hills Hotel, however, a security guard led her to Trump’s private bungalow. Once inside, she says Trump began kissing her on the lips and pulling her towards him.
Though she pushed him away repeatedly, he eventually grabbed her arm and lead her into the bedroom. He tried to convince her to lay on the bed with him, even thrusting his genitals onto her clothed body. When she rebuffed him numerous times, he angrily agreed to order dinner. She never saw him again.
Zervos told close friends and family about the encounter shortly after it occurred. She says she even reached out to Trump earlier this year, to tell him how much his actions hurt her. She made her accusations public in an October 14, 2016 press conference with attorney Gloria Allred.
2006 - Jessica Drake
Drake claimed Trump not only kissed her against her will, but also offered her money to sleep with him at a golf tournament 10 years ago.
Trump and Drake talked briefly while she manned the Wicked Pictures booth at the tournament. They exchanged numbers, and he later invited her to his room. She felt uncomfortable going alone, so she brought two female friends with her.
"When we entered the room, he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission," Drake said at an October 22, 2016 press conference.
After she left, Drake said she received a phone call from Trump, asking her to come to his suite and have dinner or attend a party with him. She declined both offers, even after he allegedly offered her money, asking, "What do you want? How much?"
Later, Drake said Trump or a male associate called to offer her $10,000 and a chance to ride on Trump's private jet. She declined the offer.
told several friends about this incident afterward, but has not
publicly revealed their names. She spoke about her story publicly for
the first time during the October
22 press conference.
2005 - Natasha Stoynoff
As a writer for People Magazine, Stoynoff covered Trump for years before he allegedly assaulted her. By that time, Stoynoff says she was friendly with both Trump and his then-pregnant wife, Melania Trump.
That didn’t stop him from allegedly pushing her up against a wall in his Mar-a-Lago home, sticking his tongue down her throat, and then telling her “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?” Stoynoff says she only escaped when a butler intervened to announce Trump’s wife was on the way.
Stoynoff told a colleague, as well as close family and friends, about her experience at the time. She made her claims public in an October 12, 2016 article for People.
2005 - Rachel Crooks
Crooks was 22 years old, and working as a receptionist, when Trump allegedly assaulted her. The real estate firm she worked for had offices in Trump Tower.
Arriving at work one day, she ran into Trump, who frequently did business with her company. She introduced herself, and he kissed her on both cheeks. Then he kissed her directly on the mouth. Crooks hurried away to her office, shocked and offended. But that didn’t stop Trump from finding her at her desk days later to ask for her phone number.
Crooks told both her boyfriend and sister about the assault immediately after it happened. She went public with her story in an October 12, 2016 article in the New York Times.
2003 - Mindy McGillivray
McGillivray met Trump while helping a friend take pictures at a Mar-a-Lago resort. Her friend, Ken Davidoff, was an official photographer for the resort and she assisted him on five or six different shoots. At one of these shoots, McGillivray says she felt someone grab her butt so hard it made her jump. She turned around to see Trump looking away quickly.
“OK, am I going to say something now and make a scene or be quiet?” she recalls thinking. “I chose to stay quiet.’’
McGillivary later told Davidoff, and some of her family, about the incident. She shared her story publicly in an October 12, 2016 article in the Palm Beach Post.
1998 - Karena Virginia
Virginia claimed Trump groped her while
she waited for her car outside the US Open tennis tournament. Virginia, who was 27 at the time, said she heard Trump commenting on her to his friends while
she stood alone outside the tournament.
"Hey look at this one, we haven't seen her before," he allegedly said to the group. "Look at those legs." Then he walked over to her, put his arm around her, and touched her breast, asking, 'Don’t you know who I am?'"
Virginia left when her car service arrived moments later.
Virginia told her husband and a few friends
about the incident after it occurred. She spoke publicly about the incident in an October
20, 2016 press
1997 - Temple Taggart
Former Miss USA contestant Taggart says Trump kissed her on the lips multiple times during her pageant career. The first time, Taggart’s father introduced her to Trump at a rehearsal. Trump greeted her by kissing her on the mouth. Later, she ran into him on a visit to Trump Tower. After he kissed her again in greeting, Taggart says her chaperones said to avoid being alone in rooms with him.
Taggart first made her account public in a March 14, 2016 article in The New York Times.
1994 - Jane Doe
An anonymous woman alleges Trump raped her at a party hosted by billionaire and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. She was 13 at the time.
According to the suit, Trump tied her to the bed, raped her, and struck her in the face when she protested. Afterwards, she says he threatened to hurt her family if she told anyone. He claims he was aware of her age at the time.
Two witnesses, who use the pseudonyms Tiffany and Joan Doe, say they saw or heard of the assault. Doe went public with her account in her April 2016 lawsuit. A nearly identical lawsuit is making its way through New York City courts now.
1993 - Jill Harth
Harth and her husband worked with Trump on a pageant proposal in the early 1990s. According to Harth, Trump harassed her continually throughout their business relationship. He attempted to grope her underneath a table and introduced her to friends as his “new girlfriend.” One night in 1993, she says he forcibly assaulted her.
"What she says is that he forced her into this private bedroom — a children's bedroom — closed the door, and forced her up against the wall," Harth’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, told Revelist. "...She said he reached his hand up her skirt and touched her private parts and she said, 'Stop it, stop it,' and pushed him off of her and ran off."
Early 1990s — Kristin Anderson
Anderson, now a photographer in California, says she was out at a Manhattan nightclub when Donald Trump groped her. The two did not know each other; in fact, she didn’t even notice him sitting next to her, until he started sliding his hands up her thigh and touching her vagina through her underwear.
Anderson says she jumped off the couch and ran away, stealing a glimpse at her assailant as she fled. That’s when she recognized Trump.
“Okay, Donald is gross,” she recalled thinking at the time. “We all know he’s gross. Let’s just move on.”
Anderson told one friend about the assault days after it happened, and another friend several years later. She made her accusations public in The Washington Post on October 14.
1989 - Ivana Trump
Trump’s first wife alleged in a 1993 deposition that he raped her while they were married. According to biographer Harry Hunt’s depiction of the assault, Trump ripped off his wife’s clothes and forced himself inside of her in the midst of an argument.
“Ivana is terrified. This is not lovemaking. This is not romantic sex. This is a violent assault," Hunt wrote.
Before Hunt’s book went to print, Trump’s lawyers provided him with a statement from Ivana. In the statement — which came after Ivana received a large settlement from the Trump estate — Ivana confirms she felt “violated,” but did not believe it constituted a “literal” or “criminal” rape.
Early 1980s - Jessica Leeds
Leeds says Trump assaulted her on a first-class flight to New York, when she as working as a traveling businesswoman. Leeds says she and Trump talked briefly at the beginning of the flight, after flight attendants offered her a first-class seat next to him.
Later, after the dinner dishes had been cleared, he wordlessly lifted the armrest between them and started to grope her. Leeds says she quickly fled back to her original seat in coach.
Leeds did not report the assault at the time, because she says she had been conditioned to accept it. She went public with her story in an October 12, 2016 article in the New York Times.
