A former US model, Amy Dorris, has accused the United States President, Donald Trump, of groping and forcibly kissing her in 1997.
While disclosing this on Thursday September 17, 2020, Dorris said Trump sexually assaulted her in his VIP suite at the US Open tennis tournament in New York.
Dorris in an interview said, “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 gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything,”
“I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it,” she added.
Dorris was 24 at the time of the alleged incidents while Trump was 51 and married at the time to his second wife, Marla Maples.
She presented several photos of her in Trump’s company, and lots of people corroborated her account, saying she told them at the time.
She says she told Trump to stop but “he didn’t care.” She added, “I felt violated, obviously.”
When asked why she continued to be around Trump in subsequent days, Dorris responded that “That’s what happens when something traumatic happens — you freeze.”
However Trump’s attorneys said her version of events was unreliable and there would be other witnesses if she had been assaulted.
They suggested that the allegation could be politically motivated, coming weeks before Trump faces Joe Biden in the November 3 election.
Dorris, now 48, said she decided to come forward to be a role model for her teenage twin daughters.
“I’m sick of him getting away with this,” Dorris said
The US president has faced more than a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct, including a claim by prominent American columnist E. Jean Carroll that he raped her in a department store changing room in the mid-1990s.
