A former model has come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her more than two decades ago. Amy Dorris says the alleged incident at the US Open tennis tournament in 1997, when she was 24, left her feeling “sick” and “violated”. Speaking publicly about the alleged incident for the first time, Dorris claims Trump grabbed her as she came out of the bathroom of his VIP box at the event, forced his tongue down her throat and held her in a grip from which she couldn't escape. Trump's lawyers said he denied in the strongest possible terms having ever harassed, abused or behaved improperly toward Dorris.
“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,” Doris said.
“I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it,” she said, adding: “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,” Doris continued.
Doris corroborated her story with The Guardian‘s help, collecting documents like photos of Trump and Doris near one another and her U.S. Open ticket from that night.
“Her account was also corroborated by several people she confided in about the incident. They include a friend in New York and Dorris’s mother, both of whom she called immediately after the alleged incident.” https://t.co/siNclXwRH8
