Don’t know these women, don’t grab them: Trump on adult filmstar
Stoking yet another controversy, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took a swipe at an adult film star, who has accused him of inappropriate sexual contact, saying “Oh, I’m sure she’s never been grabbed before”.
Jessica Drake, an adult film star this week became the 11th woman to accuse the 70-year-old business tycoon of inappropriate sexual contact, saying he touched and kissed her in 2006, further damaging the already fragile campaign of the controversial Republican nominee ahead of the November 8 polls.
In an appearance on WGIR radio’s ‘New Hampshire Today’, Trump called the accusations against him “total fiction.” “These are stories that are made up, these are total fiction. You’ll find out that, in the years to come, these women that stood up, it was all fiction,” he said.
“They were made up. I don’t know these women, it’s not my thing to do what they say. You know I don’t do that. I don’t grab them, as they say, on the arm,” Trump was quoted as saying by CNN.
“One said, ‘he grabbed me on the arm.’ And she’s a porn star. You know, this one that came out recently, ‘he grabbed me and he grabbed me on the arm.’ Oh, I’m sure she’s never been grabbed before,” the reality TV star-turned politician said.
Trump rejected all accusations saying, “It’s all lies, it’s all lies, it was made up. It’s like dripping water.”
Drake, who is being represented by attorney Gloria Allred, is one of several women who have accused Trump of unwanted sexual advances in recent weeks. Trump has denied all the allegations against him.
In the interview, Trump called Allred “a third rate lawyer” who supported Clinton.
Drake is at least the 11th woman to publicly accuse the real estate tycoon of unwanted sexual advances since the surfacing of a 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump brags about being able to grope and kiss women.
Like many of the women before her, Drake said her decision was sparked by watching a 2005 video of Trump bragging about getting away with assaulting women because of his celebrity status.
‘Ab Ki Baar Trump Sarkar’: Trump ad borrows from Modi’s 2014 poll slogan
With just two weeks left for the US Presidential elections, Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign has come up with a unique ad to woo Hindu Americans.
According to reports, Donald Trump’s new ad borrows Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s winning catchphrase in the 2014 national election – ‘Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar’. The advertisement begins by wishing Hindus ‘Happy Diwali.’
“Ab Ki Baar, Trump Sarkar” – the Republican nominee then pronounces slowly before the ad fades to the text: “Great for America, Great for US-India relationship.” The advertisement is an initiative of the Republican Hindu Coalition, the group that organised a fundraiser addressed by Trump in New Jersey over a week ago. “We love the Hindus and we love India,” he had declared in the meeting on October 16.
