Kristin Anderson alleged to The Washington Post, Friday, that Donald Trump put his hand up her skirt without her permission at a nightclub in the early 1990s
Another woman has come forward to accuse Donald Trump of touching her inappropriately.
Kristin Anderson alleged to The Washington Post on Friday that Trump reached his hand up her skirt, uninvited, during a night at a Manhattan club in the early 1990s.
She said that she was in her 20s at the time, and was sitting with friends on a red velvet couch when she allegedly felt Trump’s fingers graze her inner thigh and touch her vagina through her underwear. She claimed that she immediately pushed the hand away and left the couch before turning back to allegedly see Trump.
“He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows,” she told the Post. “I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
The incident, she said, left her “very grossed out and weirded out.” Multiple friends confirmed Anderson’s story to the Post, but one said they laughed off the alleged encounter at the time.
“It wasn’t a sexual come-on,” Anderson alleged. “I don’t know why he did it. It was like just to prove that he could do it, and nothing would happen. There was zero conversation. We didn’t even really look at each other. It was very random, very nonchalant on his part.”
Anderson, now 46, joins the growing list of women who have accused the GOP nominee of sexual misconduct. Trump has strongly denied all of the allegations, asserting during a Florida speech on Thursday that the claims are “fabricated” and “absolutely false.”
In response to Anderson’s claims, Trump’s spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement, “Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity. It is totally ridiculous.”
Anderson only told the story to the Post after being approached by a reporter who heard of her allegations from another person, the newspaper said.
She said she decided to speak out after reading the accounts shared in The New York Times by two women who claimed Trump also groped them, and a story by a PEOPLE writer who alleged the businessman sexually assaulted her.

“I’ve always kept quiet,” Anderson said. “And why should I keep quiet? Actually, all of the women should speak up, and if you’re touched inappropriately, tell somebody and speak up about it. Actually go to the authorities and press some charges. It’s not okay.”
On Thursday, Trump said of the initial allegations, “The claims are preposterous, ludicrous, and defy truth, common sense and logic. We already have substantial evidence to dispute these lies, and it will be made public in an appropriate way and at an appropriate time very soon.”
His lawyer also demanded a retraction of the Times piece and threatened to sue. The Times declined to take down the report.
Trump charged, “These people are horrible people. They’re horrible, horrible liars. And interestingly, it happens to appear 26 days before our very important election, isn’t that amazing?”
