The New York Times is rejecting Donald Trump's claim the newspaper has libeled the Republican presidential nominee, saying its story about two women who said he sexually assaulted them was "newsworthy information about a subject of deep public concern".
And late Wednesday, a writer for People magazine reported a 2005 incident in which she said Trump kissed her against her will at Mar-a-Lago.
U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is threatening to sue the New York Times as he faces new groping allegations from four women.
She wrote that she went to Mar-a-Lago to interview Trump and Melania Trump for a feature story on their first wedding anniversary.
"We're going to turn him into Bill Cosby", Trump campaign CEO Stephen Bannon told staffers about Bill Clinton, according to two advisers who were present, starting with a Thursday night appearance on Fox News by three women who have accused the former president of misconduct.
The women's claims are the latest blow to Trump's hopes of defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton for the White House in the November 8 election.
The reports come as Trump grapples with the fallout from a Friday Washington Post report of a 2005 video in which he speaks in lewd and sexually aggressive terms about women. I don't even know who they are.
Leeds says Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt during a flight to NY more than 30 years ago. Trump also dispatched his daughter Ivanka to the Pennsylvania suburbs on Thursday in the hope that she can lift his standing in the crucial swing state. She said she fled to the back of the plane and sat in the coach section. "His hands were everywhere".
Rachel Crooks, in a separate allegation reported in the same story, said she was working as a receptionist for a company in Trump Tower in 2005 when she encountered Trump outside of an elevator.
"There's a big Trump and a little Trump", he said on the Fox Business Network.
He then began kissing her cheeks and then kissed her on the mouth, she told the paper. Crooks, who was 22 years old at the time, recognized the real estate mogul and introduced herself with a handshake.
"I think it is pretty evident this story falls clearly in the realm of public service journalism, and discussing issues that arose from the tape and his comments since it surfaced", Times executive editor Dean Baquet told CNNMoney. She said she was struck by how Trump's comments from the 2005 video mirrored her experience.
In the "Access Hollywood" footage, first reported by The Washington Post, Trump bragged of groping women without their permission, making sexual advances toward a married woman and automatically kissing women he considered lovely.
"If you've got friends in Utah or Arizona, make sure they vote, too", Clinton told a raucous crowd in Pueblo. You can do anything ... "Grab them by the p--". "You are a disgusting human being", he said.
Leeds pointed to how different the culture around sexual assault was at the time she says Trump groped her.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond when asked if Trump meant to file a lawsuit against the Times.
Cooper's questioning in Sunday's debate provides a bookend for the campaign, back to Megyn Kelly's question in the first Republican primary debate about Trump's treatment of women, said Schroeder, a Northeastern University professor. He then leaned in, catching me off guard, and kissed me nearly on lips. "I ran the hell out of there". Trump repeatedly addressed women with sexist language, rated female contestants by the size of their breasts and talked about which ones he'd like to have sex with, the people told The Associated Press. Trump apologized for his comments, but also dismissed them as "locker room talk" and a distraction from the campaign.
