Trump Told 14-Year-Old Girl He’d Be Dating Her Soon
More scandals about Donald Trump’s alleged sexual misconduct against women are arising, this time with two incidents, each involving a woman who was just a girl at the time. Trump denies the allegations.
The Hill reports:
A day after scandal erupted over a questionable comment Donald Trump made to a 10-year-old girl in 1992, a new report shows he made a similar comment to a 14-year-old girl around the same time.
According to a Chicago Tribune wire from December 1992, Trump approached a youth choir group outside the then-Trump-owned Plaza Hotel in Manhattan and engaged the group in conversation.
Trump asked one of the girls her age, and when she said she was 14, Trump replied, “Wow! Just think—in a couple of years I’ll be dating you.”
The now-GOP nominee made a strikingly similar comment about a 10-year-old during a 1992 “Entertainment Tonight” Christmas special, footage of which resurfaced on Wednesday.
In the clip, Trump can be heard engaging in small talk with the child, before telling someone off-camera, “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”
Trump is presently embroiled in a growing scandal prompted by lewd remarks he made into a hot mic aboard an “Access Hollywood” bus in 2005. Over the past 24 hours, multiple women have come forward to accuse Trump of the kind of uninvited kissing or groping he talked about in that recording.
In reports and first-person accounts recorded in The New York Times, People magazine and The Palm Beach Post, four women have accused Trump of forcibly kissing them or aggressively touching them against their will.
Trump called the reports “slander and libel” Thursday and promised he has “substantial evidence” that the women’s claims are false, which he vowed to release “very soon.”
