NBC News anchor Megyn Kelly will interview three of the women who have accused President Donald Trump of inappropriate sexual behavior.
The interview will air live on “Megyn Kelly Today” at 9 a.m. Eastern time, CNBC reported. Kelly will be speaking with Samantha Holvey, Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks.
Kelly’s guests are just three out of 16 women who have publicly accused Donald Trump of making unwanted sexual advances on them.
“The president addressed these accusations directly during the campaign and we have no changes,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News, according to CNBC.
Leeds told The New York Times in October 2016 that she encountered Donald Trump on an airplane in the 1980s after she was upgraded to first class. She said he began groping her breasts and reaching under her skirt after 45 minutes of talking.
“He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”
Crooks also told The New York Times of a similar encounter between herself and Donald Trump. She said they met in 2005 when she was 22 years old and working as a receptionist at an office in New York City’s Trump Tower.
Crooks said he began kissing her on the cheeks and on the mouth after she introduced herself and shook his hand.
“It was so inappropriate,” Crooks told The New York Times. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”
Holvey shared her story with CNN. She said she met Donald Trump while competing in the 2006 Miss USA Pageant. She said he would personally inspect her and other contestants before the competition.
It was “the dirtiest” she had felt in her entire life, Holvey, who was 20 years old at the time, told CNN. “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.”
The president has denied all the women’s claims despite being caught on the now infamous “Access Hollywood” tape bragging about grabbing women by their private parts.
“Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her,” Trump was heard telling Billy Bush, according to The New York Times. “You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” Bush responded.
“Grab ’em by the p***y,” Trump added. “You can do anything.”
