WASHINGTON — The allegations against President Donald Trump are listed on an online database of 70 women who have publicly accused him of sexual misconduct, and more than half of the women said he engaged in the acts in exchange for money or gifts.
The Trump allegations were posted Tuesday by the website called #AsexualBarometer that bills itself as a “sympathetic and safe” resource for those seeking to keep their identities confidential.
The website received more than 60,000 public votes by Tuesday morning on the criteria it wanted to include in its profile of sexual misconduct by a man or woman.
Trump has denied allegations of sexual misconduct.
The first accusation came from Virginia’s U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, who is being challenged by Hillary Clinton in November.
“Mr. Trump has been guilty of behavior that is reprehensible, and he needs to be held accountable,” Kaine said in a statement. “The only way to acknowledge Mr. Trump’s behavior is by disavowing him and by preventing his campaign and the Republican Party from ever again engaging in it.”
Trump has denied Kaine’s allegations.
Other women, including none who could be named, have accused Trump of groping or kissing them without their consent or kissing or grabbing their buttocks without their consent.
Trump himself released a statement saying he never groped or kissed a woman without their consent. However, he acknowledged in his statement that he kissed former Miss Universe Alicia Machado “on the lips” without her consent.
Despite his denials, many women have said he asked for their hand in the past or tried to get them to kiss him. Others have said he touched them inappropriately or engaged in kissing or touching of their genitals without consent.———
