Trump accuser challenges president: 'By all means, release the footage'

Donald Trump says the alleged encounter with Rachel Crooks never happened

President Donald Trump denied Tuesday that he assaulted a woman who says he forcibly kissed her in Trump Tower in 2006.

Rachel Crooks, a secretary working for another company in Trump Tower, told The Washington Post Mr Trump repeatedly kissed her in an elevator just moments after she introduced herself.

After Trump's election, Allred wrapped up her media campaign and none of the women, including Crooks, filed any charges.

The US leader has denied the allegations.

And yet Trump appeared to generically verify her story in the infamous Access Hollywood tapes when he told Billy Bush: "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]".

Rachel Crooks came forward in 2016 after Trump boasted to an Access Hollywood correspondent of aggressively fondling women in a leaked recording from 2005. She said she was a 22-year-old receptionist at Trump Tower in NY in 2005 when Mr Trump kissed her repeatedly on the cheeks and then "directly on the mouth" during an introductory conversation.




In response to Trump's tweet, Crooks said on Twitter that Trump should release "the footage from the hallway outside the 24th floor residential elevator bank on the morning of January 11, 2006".

Trump said he never met Crooks.

. Trump sometimes did business with Bayrock, and Crooks chose to introduce herself to him, "not as a fan or as a secretary but as a business partner", Saslow writes.

"Hey ma, my day started off rough...had a weird incident with Mr. Trump", she wrote.

She said she felt "feelings of self-doubt and insignificance" for a decade before becoming emboldened to tell her story after she began to hear other women's claims ahead of the 2016 United States election. One had her home mortgage paid off.

"I think my voice should have been heard then, and I'll still fight for it to be heard now", she told Cosmopolitan earlier this month. She saw her departure from NY as "one of the first real failures or defeats of my life, where the world wasn't what I hoped it was going to be, and I started to really doubt myself", she told Saslow. Trump tweeted in 2016 after the claims surfaced initially. How many women have to come forward? Now 35 years of age, Crooks is now running for state legislature in OH as a Democrat, in House District 88. "Americans are really upset with politics as usual, and I want to be a voice for them".
