  • 'Let's Try Round Two': Trump Accusers Share Stories, Call for Congressional Probe

Three women who have accused President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE of sexual misconduct shared their stories in detail on Monday, with one accuser saying they chose to "try again" given the recent wave of women and men who have shared stories of sexual harassment in recent months.

She, too, came forward to tell her story during the 2016 campaign, but said that she was distraught when he was sworn into office.

Holvey, who competed in the Trump led beauty pageant said that Trump "personally inspected each woman" prior to the pageant.

"Just looking me over like I was a piece of meat", Ms. Holvey said of the exchange.

Summer Zervos, a former contestant on NBC's "The Apprentice", claimed a year ago that Trump "very aggressively" kissed her, groped her breasts, and began "thrusting" his genitals at her in a 2007 meeting at The Beverly Hills Hotel.

He gave her a double cheek kiss, but then kept kissing her. But when she moved to NY things changed. We will update this post later with more from Crooks, Holvey, and Leeds.

Another accuser, Samantha Holvey, said Mr. Trump came backstage during the Miss USA contest in 2006.

The news conference comes one day after US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said anyone claiming they're victims of sexual misconduct should be heard. "I didn't know what just happened but I felt terrible", Crooks said. "You feel like you have to say yes to [these] guys".

Trump has denied all of the claims made by the women and now alleges that the "Access Hollywood" tape is fake.

The White House has dismissed the women's claims, and did so again on Monday.

"I know that he was elected", Haley said on CBS' "Face the Nation". I was very young and naive and I just felt so gross and that wasn't what I signed up for.

"These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year's campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory", a White House spokesperson told "Today".

It went on to say that the "timing and absurdity" of the accusers" along with their "publicly tour' only serve to confirm the president's version of events. She recounted her story of working as a receptionist for a company that had offices in Trump Tower. "I would love for that to be made public".

She said that in 2005, having often spotted Trump using a nearby elevator bank, she chose to introduce herself. "The things that happened to us spanned decades, states - all over - how could we have possibly colluded to come up with these tales that all sound eerily similar".
