Donald Trump faced fresh allegations of making unwelcome sexual advances, with his 11th accuser being Jessica Drake, an adult film star and director.
She also claimed that she was offered $10,000 for Mr Trump to come to her room, which she declined. She was unable to recall whether it was Mr Trump or a staff member calling on his behalf who proposed the alleged payment to her.
Mr Trump’s campaign dismissed her allegations as “totally false and ridiculous”, adding “Mr Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her.”
Accompanied by her lawyer Gloria Allred, Ms Drake said the alleged encounter took place at a golf tournament at Lake Tahoe in 2006.
Mr Trump, the Republican nominee for the White House, has strongly denied the allegations made by 10 other women and accused the Clinton campaign of dirty tricks. Speaking in Pennsylvania he said he intended to sue his accusers for defamation, describing their stories as a total fabrication.
Adult film star accuses Trump of offering her $10,000 for sex Ms Drake said she was working at a booth on the golf course and was invited to go for a stroll with Mr Trump.
He also asked for her phone number, which she provided. She accepted an invitation to go to his penthouse suite but as a precaution took two friends.
“When we entered the room he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each of us on the lips without asking for permission,” she said.
“He was wearing pyjamas and a bodyguard was also present.”
Ms Drake said she received a call from somebody acting on Mr Trump’s behalf, inviting her back to the room, which she declined.
Also working in sex education, Ms Drake said she had previously mentioned the incident to some friends.
She added that she had chosen to come forward to show her support for others who have made similar accusations.
