Donald Trump was charged with sexual assault by models at the 1997 US Open Tennis


A former model accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her at the US Open tennis championship 23 years ago.

Amy Dorris, 48, said she felt "sick" and "injured" following the alleged attack in Trump's VIP box at the September 5, 1997 tournament in New York.

Trump denies the claim.

In an interview with The Guardian, Dorris claims that Trump pushed his tongue down her throat and held her in a & # 39; tentacle & # 39; -like grip that she couldn't escape.

"He just stuck his tongue down my throat and I pushed him off," Dorris said. And then his grip tightened and his hands were very tentative and all over my bum, my breasts, my back, everything.

“I was in his grip and couldn't get out. I don't know what you call it when you stick your tongue down someone's throat. But I pushed it out with my teeth. I pushed it. And I think I would have hurt his tongue. & # 39;

Trump's attorneys have "fiercely denied" President Dorris ever molested, abused, or behaved inappropriately.

The president's lawyers told the Guardian that there were numerous witnesses of sexual misconduct in the VIP box.

Dorris says she was introduced to Trump in 1997 by then-boyfriend Jason Binn, who knew the real estate tycoon and later referred to him as his "best friend."

She claims she was taken to meet the future president at Trump Tower before the three of them went to the US Open at Flushing Meadows.

Dorris, then 24 years old, claims that Trump "immediately became very strong" even though her boyfriend was with her.

According to her report, she returned from a trip to the bathroom and found Trump forced himself on her – and said she felt like she was choking on his octopus-like grip.

She claims Trump continued attacking her despite asking him to "get away" and claims the tycoon "didn't bother".

The previous model says she feels "hurt" but also feels pressured to act normally and to continue chatting with guests after the alleged attack.

Dorris says she returned to Trump's VIP box the next day, claiming Trump continued to pursue her but did not attack her again.

Other guests in the box are said to have been actor Leonardo DiCaprio and illusionist David Blaine.

Dorris says she was back in Trump's presence two days later at a memorial service for Gianni Versace, and that the fashion designer had been shot a few weeks earlier.

During her stay in New York, Trump tried to give the impression that he was a couple. Once they were pictured while signing an autograph.

Failing to comment on his ex-girlfriend's claims, Binn is the founder of luxury lifestyle magazines, including DuJour magazine.

Trump was seen at this year's US Open with his ex-wife Ivana as well as Dorris, Binn and other guests on the tennis court in Queens.

At the time of the alleged attack, Trump was 51 years old and married to his second wife, Marla Maples, whom he married in 1993 and divorced in 1999.

Dorris said she was considering speaking out in 2016 when numerous women accused Trump of sexual assault in the weeks leading up to the presidential election.

Trump denied all allegations, claiming his accusers made up their stories to harm his campaign.

The new lawsuit comes just weeks before the November 3rd election, in which Trump is fighting for a second term against Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

Trump's lawyers suggest that the timing close to the election means the new claim could be politically motivated.

But Dorris said she would volunteer now to be a "role model" to her twin daughters, who are 13 years old.

She added that she had voted for Republicans in the past and would have come forward even if Trump had been a Democrat.

Some of the previous cases are still being challenged in court, including former apprentice candidate Summer Zervos' allegation that he kissed and fondled her twice in 2007.

Zervos is suing Trump for defamation for pointing out she lied when she came forward during the 2016 campaign.

In another case, magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll searches for Trump's DNA to support her claim that he raped her in the 1990s. He denies this.

Another of Trump's accusers, Jill Harth, sued Trump for sexual assault in 1997, long before he went into politics.

Harth dropped her harassment suit against Trump after settling a separate infringement suit. Trump denied their allegations.
