Donald Trump has been accused by several women of several different types of sexual assault and inappropriateness in the wake of the emergence of the video footage of him being sexually aggressive towards women.
He said in the 2005 footage, which he has since claimed was “locker room banter”: “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab them by the p—-‘.” He added that when he meets beautiful women, “I just start kissing them.”
The Republican presidential nominee has denied all the accusations.
Mr Trump faced further allegations of sexism after he said it was fine to call his daughter Ivanka a “voluptuous piece of a–” and admitted looking at naked contestants backstage at his beauty pageants.

These are the sexual assault allegations and incidents of inappropriateness:
1. New York Times allegations
On Wednesday night, two women accused Donald Trump of inappropriate touching in the New York Times.
One of the women, Jessica Leeds, appeared on camera to recount how Mr Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt in the first class cabin on a flight to New York in or around 1980.
The second woman, Rachel Crooks, described how Mr Trump “kissed me directly on the mouth” in 2005 outside the elevator in Trump Tower in Manhattan, where she was a receptionist at a real estate firm.
2. Mar-A-Lago claim
The Palm Beach Post published an exclusive story on its website in which Mindy McGillivray, now 36, alleged that Mr Trump grabbed her at his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida in early 2003.
“It was pretty close to the centre of my butt,” she said of the incident that happened as she was working as a photographer’s assistant at an event. “I was startled. I jumped.”
3. Miss Washington
Cassandra Searles, Miss Washington 2013, called Trump a “misogynist” in a Facebook post, and said in a comment that he had “continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room”, Yahoo News reported.
4. Miss Utah
Temple Taggart, a former Miss Utah, told the New York Times in May how Trump kissed her on the lips when he introduced himself to the 21-year-old contestant at the 1997 Miss USA pageant. She said he kissed her again at a later meeting at Trump Tower.
5. To 10-year-old: ‘I’ll be dating her in 10 years’
CBS showed clips from its show Entertainment Tonight in 1992 with Mr Trump addressing a group of 10-year-old girls, remarking as one of them walked past him: “I’ll be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?” He was 46 at the time.
6. Miss Teen USA
Four contestants from the 1997 Miss Teen USA pageant have claimed that Mr Trump suddenly entered their dressing room while they were changing. Mariah Billado, the former Miss Vermont Teen USA, said Mr Trump told the contestants, some of whom were as young as 15: “Don’t worry ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
7. The Apprentice
A former contestant on The Apprentice, Mr Trump’s long-running reality television show, told Grazia that the property mogul kissed her on the lips during a job interview. “I was very taken aback by that at the time,” she said.
8. People journalist
Natasha Stoynoff, a journalist for People magazine, claims she was assaulted by Mr Trump during a 2005 interview at his Mar-a-Lago resort. “Trump shut the door behind us,” she writes. “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.”
9. Days of Our Lives cameo performance
The following is a full, unedited transcript of the 2005 tape in which Donald Trump makes lewd comments about women while on the set of Days of Our Lives, an American soap opera where he was going to film a cameo performance.
He is talking with Billy Bush, an American radio and TV host. They are later joined by Arianne Zucker, an actress.
Trump: I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.
Trump: I did try and f*** her. She was married.
Unknown: That’s huge news there.
Trump: No, no, Nancy. No, this was [unintelligible] — and I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping.
She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture I moved on her like a b****. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony t*** and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
Billy Bush: Sheesh, your girl’s hot as s***. In the purple.
Trump: Whoa! Whoa!
Bush: Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!
Trump: Look at you, you are a p****.
(Crosstalk. Video distortion)
Trump: All right, you and I will walk out.
Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.
Bush: It better not be the publicist. No, it’s, it’s her, it’s —
Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
Bush: Whatever you want.
Trump: Grab ’em by the p****. You can do anything.
Bush: Uh, yeah, those legs, all I can see is the legs.
Trump: Oh, it looks good.
Bush: Come on shorty.
Trump: Ooh, nice legs, huh?
Bush: Oof, get out of the way, honey. Oh, that’s good legs. Go ahead.
Trump: It’s always good if you don’t fall out of the bus. Like Ford, Gerald Ford, remember?
Bush: Down below, pull the handle.
Trump: Hello, how are you? Hi!
Arianne Zucker: Hi, Mr. Trump. How are you? Pleasure to meet you.
Trump: Nice seeing you. Terrific, terrific. You know Billy Bush?
Bush: Hello, nice to see you. How you doing, Arianne?
Zucker: Doing very well, thank you. Are you ready to be a soap star?
Trump: We’re ready, let’s go. Make me a soap star.
Bush: How about a little hug for the Donald? He just got off the bus.
Zucker: Would you like a little hug, darling?
Trump: Okay, absolutely. Melania said this was okay.
Bush: How about a little hug for the Bushy? I just got off the bus.
Zucker: Bushy, Bushy.
Bush: Here we go. Excellent. Well, you’ve got a nice co-star here.
Zucker: Yes, absolutely.
Trump: Good. After you.
(Break in video)
Trump: Come on, Billy, don’t be shy.
Bush: Soon as a beautiful woman shows up, he just, he takes off. This always happens.
Trump: Get over here, Billy.
Zucker: I’m sorry, come here.
Bush: Let the little guy in here, come on.
Zucker: Yeah, let the little guy in. How you feel now? Better? I should actually be in the middle.
Bush: It’s hard to walk next to a guy like this.
Zucker: Here, wait, hold on.
Bush: Yeah, you get in the middle, there we go.
Trump: Good, that’s better.
Zucker: This is much better. This is –
Trump: That’s better.
Bush: Now, if you had to choose honestly between one of us. Me or the Donald?
Trump: I don’t know, that’s tough competition.
Zucker: That’s some pressure right there.
Bush: Seriously, if you had — if you had to take one of us as a date.
Zucker: I have to take the Fifth on that one.
Zucker: Yup – I’ll take both.
Trump: Which way?
Zucker: Make a right. Here we go. (inaudible)
Bush: Here he goes. I’m gonna leave you here.
Bush: Give me my microphone.
Trump: Okay. Oh, you’re finished?
Bush: You’re my man, yeah.
Trump: Oh, good.
Bush: I’m gonna go do our show.
Zucker: Oh, you wanna reset? Okay.
10. The radio interviews
Donald Trump faced further allegations of sexism after he said it was fine to call his daughter Ivanka a “voluptuous piece of a–” and admitted looking at naked contestants backstage at his beauty pageants.
In a series of radio interviews with “shock jock” Howard Stern, Mr Trump also spoke about having sex with three women at a time and how he would never date anyone over 35.
The newly unearthed audio files were released following the publication of a 2005 video showing Mr Trump bragging about groping women, which has created the biggest crisis of his presidential campaign.
Mr Trump’s remarks about his daughter were uncovered by CNN from conversations with Mr Stern over a 17-year period. At the time of his comments about Ivanka Trump in 2006, she was 22.
Mr Stern said she “looks more voluptuous than ever” and asked “if Ivanka had breast implants”.
Her father responded: “She’s actually always been very voluptuous. She’s tall, she’s almost six feet tall and she’s been, she’s an amazing beauty.”
“By the way, your daughter,” Mr Stern said. “Can I say this? A piece of a–?” Mr Trump replied: “Yeah.”
In another interview Mr Trump talked about seeing models naked behind the scenes at the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants he owned.
He said: “I’ll tell you the funniest is that before a show I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it.
“You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, the dresses, ‘Is everyone okay?’ They’re standing there with no clothes and you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that. But no, I’ve been very good.”
Hillary Clinton has not addressed Wednesday night’s allegations directly. However, in a statement, her campaign said:
“This disturbing story sadly fits everything we know about the way Donald Trump has treated women.
“These reports suggest that he lied on the debate stage and that the disgusting behavior he bragged about in the tape is more than just words.”
Mr Trump has denied all allegations of sexual assault. A statement responding to the New York Times article said:
“This entire article is fiction, and for the New York Times to launch a completely false, coordinated character assassination against Mr Trump on a topic like this is dangerous. To reach back decades in an attempt to smear Mr Trump trivialises sexual assault, and it sets a new low for where the media is willing to go in its efforts to determine this election.
“It is absurd to think that one of the most recognisable business leaders on the planet with a strong record of empowering women in his companies would do the things alleged in this story, and for this to only become public decades later in the final month of a campaign for president should say it all.
“Further, the Times story buries the pro-Clinton financial and social media activity on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, reinforcing that this truly is nothing more than a political attack. This is a sad day for the Times.”
