New Delhi: A newspaper article by an English daily, The New York Times, made a shocking revelation about U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The Times claim it has interviewed close to 50 women who have worked with or for Donald Trump over the past four decades, women who had dated him or interacted with him socially, and women and men who had closely observed his conduct.
Their accounts, the article claimed reveal unwelcome romantic advances, unending commentary on the female form, a shrewd reliance on ambitious women, and unsettling workplace conduct, according to the interviews, as well as court records and written recollections.
Incidentally, some of those interviewed praised Trump for giving women positions of power.
Pressed on the women’s claims, Trump disputed many of the details, such as asking Brewer Lane to put on a swimsuit. “A lot of things get made up over the years,” he said. “I have always treated women with great respect. And women will tell you that.”
The story comes less than two weeks after the last of Trump's Republican rivals dropped out, all but assuring him the party's presidential nomination this summer.
Throughout his improbable campaign, Trump has managed to deflect criticism about his attitude to women, fueled by verbal insults he reportedly lobbed at Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and former Republican candidate Carly Fiorina.
