“None of this ever took place,” Trump reportedly told Times reporter Megan Twohey in a phone interview Tuesday night. He also called Twohey “a disgusting human being” and said he would sue the Times if it published the article, the paper reported.
The Times published its report Wednesday night. It features two women — Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks — who say that Trump made inappropriate physical advances. CNN has not been able to independently confirm their accounts.
In the Times report, Leeds alleges that Trump, whom she says she had never met before, grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt while the two were on an airplane more than three decades ago. Crooks, who worked in Trump Tower at a company that Trump did not own, says Trump kissed her outside an elevator after she introduced herself.
