A former Apprentice contestant is the latest in a string of several women to come forward with sexual assault allegations against presidential nominee Donald Trump.
At a press conference on Friday afternoon, Summer Zervos accused Trump of inappropriate sexual conduct in 2007, both at his office in New York City and then again a few days later at a hotel in Los Angeles.
Zervos said that when she arrived at Trump's office to discuss job opportunities, he "kissed her on the lips" when she arrived and again when she left. She said it made her feel "nervous and embarrassed," but she brushed it off as a greeting.
A few days later, Zervos met Trump at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, again for what she thought was a business-related meeting. Zervos was supposed to meet Trump for dinner, but upon arriving at the hotel was brought to a bungalow where she alleges that he kissed her "open-mouthed," touched her breasts, and led her to his bedroom despite her efforts to get away from him.
Before Zervos told her story, her attorney Gloria Allred provided a statement in which she addressed Trump directly. "Donald, before you can become president of the United States, you must first learn how to treat women with respect," she said.
We couldn't agree more.
