Donald Trump, Amy Dorris, & Sexual Misconduct Allegations

No fewer than 25 women had made accusations of sexual misconduct against Trump earlier in #MeToo campaign when a former model Amy Dorris accused him of the same.

In a recent interview with Guardian, Amy alleged that Donald Trump accosted her outside the bathroom of his VIP box at the US Open tennis tournament in New York in 1997. According to her statement, Trump forced his tongue down her throat, touching her all over her body and holding her in a grip from which she could not escape, while ignoring her constant requests to stop.

“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 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.”

Allegations of sexual assault against Trump date back to four decades ago. Since then many women have come forward (majorly in 2016 under #MeToo campaign), but Trump clearly denied all allegations calling accounts fake and false allegations. A majority of those women only had faded memories in store. But Dorris produced photographs of herself with Trump and her then boyfriend, verifying her accusations.

Via his lawyers, Donald Trump has denied in the strongest possible terms having ever harassed, abused or behaved improperly toward Dorris.
