LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to push back against new claims about his alleged history of inappropriate behavior towards women. Since the second presidential debate — where Trump claimed he never abused women — five accusers have come forward alleging the Republican candidate inappropriately touched or groped them. The latest accuser involves a reporter from People Magazine, Natasha Stoynoff , who interviewed Donald and Melania Trump in 2005. CBS2’s Kara Finnstrom reported Melania, who was pregnant at the time, had to leave the interview for a while, which led to the alleged assault. Stoynoff claims Donald took her into another room, closed the doors, slammed her against a wall and forced his tongue down her throat. On Wednesday, the New York Times published the accounts of two additional women, Rachel Crooks and Jessica Leeds, who claim Trump also acted inappropriately in their presence. Within the article, Crooks alleges the billionaire kissed her near an elevator inside Trump Tower where she worked for a real estate investment company in 2005. Leeds claims Trump touched her underneath her skirt as she sat next to him on a flight several years ago. The Republican candidate’s lawyers have since demanded a retraction from the New York Times, threatening legal action towards the publication. Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to respond to the new allegations made against him. The phony story in the failing @nytimes is a TOTAL FABRICATION. Written by same people as last discredited story on women. WATCH! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2016 Why didn’t the writer of the twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the “incident” in her story. Because it did not happen! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2016 Meanwhile, a 1992 Entertainment Tonight video has also surfaced, in which Trump can allegedly be heard making questionable comments about dating a young girl in 10 years. Two additional claims of groping have been made by a beauty queen from Washington and a photographer’s assistant in Florida, according to Finnstrom.
