It certainly hasn’t been Trump’s week!
Just yesterday, 4 different women accused Trump of sexual assault.
And now, we have another accusation, this one from a former writer for People Magazine, who covered Trump for the magazine.
Natasha Stoynoff wrote for People about an assault that she says occurred while she was writing a story on the first anniversary of Trump’s wedding to Melania Knauss in 2005.
Stoynoff, who had been covering Trump for some time, says that Trump wanted to show her a room at Mar-a-Lago:
We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat. Now, I’m a tall, strapping girl who grew up wrestling two giant brothers. I even once sparred with Mike Tyson. It takes a lot to push me. But Trump is much bigger—a looming figure—and he was fast, taking me by surprise, and throwing me off balance. I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.
Stoynoff said that a few moments later, Trump told her, “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?” Stoynoff said she told a colleague about the incident, but blamed herself, did not act, and asked to leave the Trump beat.
The Trump campaign is denying this account, as he has with the other accusers.
