A former model has accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her at the US Open tennis championship 23 years ago. Amy Dorris said she felt ‘sick’ and ‘violated’ after the alleged incident outside the bathroom in his VIP box at the tournament in New York on September 5, 1997.
Trump denies the claim.
In an interview with UK’s ‘The Guardian,’ Dorris, who was 24 at the time, accuses Trump of forcing his tongue down her throat, assaulting her all over her body and holding her in a grip she was unable to escape from.
‘He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very grope-y and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything.
‘I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it, she said. ‘I don’t know what you call that when you’re sticking your tongue just down someone’s throat. But I pushed it out with my teeth. I was pushing it. And I think I might have hurt his tongue.’
Trump’s lawyers have denied ‘in the strongest possible terms’ that the president ever harassed, abused or behaved improperly toward Dorris.
Dorris says she was introduced to Trump by her then-boyfriend, Jason Binn, who knew the real estate tycoon and later described him as his ‘best friend’. She claims that she was taken to meet the future president at Trump Tower before the three of them went to the US Open at Flushing Meadows.
Dorris alleges that Trump ‘came on very strong right away’ despite the fact that her boyfriend was sitting with her. According to her account, she returned from a trip to the bathroom to find Trump forcing himself on her. She alleges that Trump continued to assault her despite her protests, claiming that the tycoon ‘didn’t care’. (IA/DS)
