New York Times says it would like Trump to sue it

The Trump campaign has not said whether or not it has plans to call on People Magazine to retract Stoynoff’s story, or whether it intends to sue the magazine. Trump, then 46, looks at a group of girls, asks one if she’s going up the escalator and then says: “I am going to be dating her in 10 years”.For a change, it appears Trump passes a fact-check.Leeds, now 74 and living in Manhattan, says she was travelling in the first-class cabin of a New York-bound aircraft more than 30 years ago, seated next to Trump.Trump apologized for his comments, but also dismissed them as “locker room talk” and a distraction from the campaign. If the campaign can’t get them to vote for Trump, the hope is that they will stay home and depress turnout, which would likely hurt Democrats.But Trump wouldn’t let go, she claims. According to her interview with the Times, she was 22-year-old receptionist at Bayrock Group, a real estate company that was headquartered out of Trump Tower in NY.Crooks said she recounted the incident that day to her sister by phone and to her boyfriend that night, both of whom spoke to the Times.Every woman in America has come across a Trump-like man.The Trump campaign’s Miller also said in his statement, “It is absurd to think that one of the most recognizable 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”.Addressing the People magazine story, in which the writer said Trump forced himself on her in 2005 when she was interviewing him, Trump said the writer didn’t mention the incident in her story at the time “because it did not happen!” “But it’s when he started putting his hand up my skirt, and that was it”, Leeds said in an interview with the New York Times.Stoynoff wrote that while Donald Trump was giving her a tour of the mansion, he wanted to show her one room he described as “tremendous”.Stoynoff writes that when she returned to NY, she told a coworker what had happened.I would be so shocked if the other two women that you’re speaking to haven’t had something similar happen to them.She said she was struck by how Trump’s comments on the “Access Hollywood” video mirrored her experience. “We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you”. Trump has denied those claims and his lawyers have sent a letter demanding a retraction and threatening legal action against the paper on the grounds of defamation and libel. Crooks said she met Trump for the first time outside an elevator there in 2005.The New York businessman said then he had never done the things he bragged about on the recording.Leeds said she did not complain to the airline at the time because such unwanted advances were common for businesswomen in the 1970s and early 1980s, the newspaper reported. The newspaper confirmed she had recently told four people close to her about the encounter. After around 45 minutes, Trump “raised the armrest, moved toward her and began to grope her”.The reports followed the emergence of the video from 2005 in which Trump bragged about groping women, kissing them without permission, and trying to seduce a married woman.He proceeded to kiss her on her cheeks, she claims, adding he then “kissed me directly on the mouth”.
