Revealed: All of the Women Linked to President Donald Trump So Far
President Donald Trump has been linked to so many women, it becomes hard to keep track. At least 19 women have accused the president of sexual misconduct. Many of those came forward after the release of the Access Hollywood tape in October 2016. Trump continually denies any wrongdoing. “Is the official White House position that all of these women are lying?” a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “Yeah, we’ve been clear on that from the beginning, and the president’s spoken on it,” she replied. But who are these women? Here’s a list of the women — besides his three wives — Trump allegedly engaged in sexual or inappropriate contact with. Don’t skip the last and, possibly, most salacious.
1. Jessica Drake
During a press conference with lawyer Gloria Allred, the former adult film star and director described meeting Trump during a 2006 golf tournament at Lake Tahoe. She said that Trump hugged and kissed her and two other women without permission, and then asked Drake out to a dinner and a party. When she demurred, Trump allegedly offered her $10,000 to go. Allred showed reporters at the press conference a photograph of the two together. Trump subsequently denied knowing her, or any of the other women present.
Drake subsequently spoke at a press conference during the Women’s March on Washington in January 2017. “Like many, I am horrified by the potential upcoming administration and fear the consequences it will have,” she told reporters, at the time.

2. Kristin Anderson
Anderson told The Washington Post in October 2016 that she met Trump at a nightspot in Manhattan, when both sat on a red velvet couch. According to her, Trump slid his fingers up her skirt and touched her. Friends of hers gave the same account to the newspaper later, The Atlantic reports. Trump’s communications director, Hope Hicks, denied the claim. “Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity,” she told the Post. “It is totally ridiculous.”

3. Mariah Billado
Five former participants in the Miss Teen USA competition, including Billado, told BuzzFeed News that Trump walked in on them while they were changing. “I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’” she said. Trump responded that he “had seen it all before.” The Trump campaign denied the allegations. “These accusations have no merit and have already been disproven by many other individuals who were present,” it said in a statement.

4. Samantha Holvey
Holvey, who represented North Carolina at the 2006 Miss USA pageant, told CNN that Trump personally inspected the contestants before the competition. “He would step in front of each girl and look you over from head to toe, like we were just meat, we were just sexual objects, that we were not people,” she said. “You know when a gross guy at the bar is checking you out? It’s that feeling.” Holvey reported feeling “disgusted” by his behavior. She later said she “had no desire to win when I understood what it was really all about.” Trump never addressed her account specifically, but did dismiss the allegations from the pageant, in general.

5. Cassandra Searles
Searles represented the state of Washington during the 2013 Miss USA pageant, and met Trump at that time. In a Facebook post written in June 2016, Searles said “this one guy treated us like cattle,” during the stage introductions. He allegedly “proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property.” While she did not name Trump, she did include a photo of him. “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my a** and invited me to his hotel room,” she wrote. Trump never responded to her allegations, either.

6. Bridget Sullivan
When she represented New Hampshire in the 2000 Miss Teen USA pageant, Trump got creepy, Sullivan told BuzzFeed News. According to Sullivan, Trump would “hug you just a little low on your back,” and give women “a squeeze like a creepy uncle would.” She also corroborated others’ stories that Trump walked through the dressing rooms while girls changed.
Next: This woman encountered Trump in two separate incidents.
7. Temple Taggart
Taggart told The New York Times about two separate encounters. She first met the president in 1997, while representing Utah in that year’s Miss USA pageant. She said Trump kissed her on the lips when they first met. He allegedly repeated the actions during a meeting at Trump Tower, when he offered to help her obtain modeling contracts. Trump told the Times that he “would never do that.” When NBC News revisited Taggart’s story after the Access Hollywood tape, he denied it again. “I don’t even know who she is,” Trump told the network. “She claims this took place in a public area. I never kissed her. I emphatically deny this ridiculous claim.”

8. Lisa Boyne
Boyne told HuffPost that she met Trump and modeling agent John Casablancas at a restaurant in Lower Manhattan in 1996. She said that Trump looked up her skirt while she walked past the table. While the president did not try to make a pass at her specifically, he allegedly asked for her input as to which of the women he should move on. Hicks told the outlet that Trump “had never heard of this woman and would never do that.”

9. Rachel Crooks
Crooks told The New York Times that she encountered Trump outside the elevator in Trump Tower in Manhattan. She told the outlet Trump shook her hand and then pulled her in for a kiss on the cheeks and the mouth. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that,” she said. Trump became highly agitated when asked about it, and called one of the reporters “a disgusting human being.” For her part, Crooks told the Times in November that she wondered why the country forgot about the women who accused Trump.

10. Tasha Dixon
Dixon told CBS News’ Los Angeles affiliate that she met Trump while representing Arizona during the 2001 Miss USA pageant. Similar to Billado’s account, Dixon said Trump routinely visited the women’s dressing room. “He just came strolling right in,” she said. “There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Other girls were naked.” Trump’s campaign also granted these accusations no credibility.

11. Jill Harth
Harth and George Houraney, her romantic and business partner at the time, met Trump in 1992, regarding a business proposal. She told The Guardian that Trump tried to grope her under the table during that very first meeting. Harth also said he cornered her in 1993 at a Mar-a-Lago. “He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again,” she reported. Houraney said he did not witness the incidents but believes they did happen. Harth shared her account during a deposition in 1996, as part of a lawsuit against Trump. That lawsuit, which Trump settled out of court, claimed that he did not hold up his end of the business deal.
Harth continues to speak out against the president. In October, she tweeted, “My pain is everyday with bastard Trump as President. No one gets it unless it happens to them. NO one!”

12. Cathy Heller
Heller told The Guardian she met Trump during a Mother’s Day brunch held at Mar-a-Lago. When he came around greeting attendees, she said Trump forcibly kissed her. “He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” she said, adding that she felt “angry and shaken.” Other witnesses corroborated her story. “There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother’s Day at Mr. Trump’s resort,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller told The Guardian. “It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades.”

13. Ninni Laaksonen
The model and former Miss Finland told Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that Trump groped her backstage at the Late Show with David Letterman in 2006. “Trump stood right next to me and suddenly he squeezed my butt,” she told the newspaper, which The Telegraph translated into English. “He really grabbed my butt. I don’t think anybody saw it, but I flinched and thought, ‘What is happening?’” When something similar happened to Taylor Swift, outrage ensued. The same has not happened for Laaksonen.

14. Jessica Leeds
Leeds told The New York Times that she sat next to Trump in a first-class cabin on a flight in the 1980s. During the flight, she said he lifted the armrest and “grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt. He was an octopus,” she added. “His hands were everywhere.” Trump later denied anything ever happened.
As the “Weinstein effect” gained momentum, Leeds told The Washington Post how disheartened she felt. “It is hard to reconcile that Harvey Weinstein could be brought down with this, and [President] Trump just continues to be the Teflon Don,” she told the newspaper.

15. Melinda McGillivray
McGillivray told the Palm Beach Post that she met Trump at Mar-a-Lago during a Ray Charles concert in 2003. Her friend Ken Davidoff, a photographer, asked her to assist him with a shoot. During the event, the now-president allegedly groped her while she and others met Charles afterward. Davidoff said that McGillivray came up to him after the meet and greet and told him, “Donald just grabbed my a**.” Later, McGillivray said “it just pisses me off” that he holds the presidency. “It’s that simple.”

16. Natasha Stoynoff
Stoynoff, a journalist at People magazine, wrote in October 2016 about a 2005 encounter with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. She met with the now-president and his wife Melania for a story about their one-year wedding anniversary. While giving her a tour of his estate, he allegedly cornered her and began forcibly kissing the journalist. “I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat,” she wrote. She said the man did not relent until a butler arrived to say Melania was on her way. Stoynoff said he continued coming on to her after the interview. In a separate article, People cited six people who corroborated Stoynoff’s account.
He denied the allegations on Twitter. “Why didn’t the writer of the twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the ‘incident’ in her story. Because it did not happen!” he wrote. The journalist wrote an indirect response in a USA Today op-ed. “Like many women, my life has been riddled with experiences of sexual misconduct by teachers, doctors, bosses, and more,” she wrote. “Sadly, many women begin to feel this behavior from men is a given, and so we go on, dying a little inside each time it happens.”

17. Karena Virginia
Virginia told The Washington Post that Trump put his arm around her and touched her breast at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in 1998. She allegedly encountered the now-president while waiting for a car outside the building. He apparently also made comments about her body to other men, before leaving in his own car. Later, his campaign called the account “ridiculous,” denying it ever happened.
Next: A lawsuit resulted from this encounter with the man who became president.
18. Summer Zervos
Zervos first met Trump in 2005, as a contestant on the fifth season of NBC’s The Apprentice. Zervos told reporters in 2016 that she met him for dinner in 2007 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. According to Zervos, he greeted her with an open-mouthed kiss when she met him at his room. “He then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast,” she said. “I pulled back and walked to another part of the room. He then walked up, grabbed my hand, and pulled me into the bedroom. I walked out.” Zervos said he also embraced her, asked her to watch TV on his bed, and thrust himself on her before she fled.
Trump also denied Zervos’ account. “I vaguely remember Ms. Zervos as one of the many contestants on The Apprentice over the years,” he said, in a statement. “To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life. In fact, Ms. Zervos continued to contact me for help, emailing my office on April 14 of this year asking that I visit her restaurant in California.” At a campaign rally a few weeks later, he again emphatically denied any wrongdoing. He also repeatedly accused Zervos and the others of lying.

19. Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels
Clifford, the pornographic-film actress reportedly received $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 election. In Touch magazine published excerpts from a 2011 interview with Clifford, 38, then known as Stormy Daniels. She told the magazine she had an affair with the now-president that started in 2006 and continued for a few years, on and off.
Clifford said her lawyer Keith Davidson negotiated the deal with Michael D. Cohen, his lawyer, according to The New York Times. Clifford called the relationship entirely consensual. “We had really good banter,” she said. “He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter.”
