A new tape featuring Donald Trump making questionable comments toward a young girl has emerged as the Republican presidential candidate fended off more allegations of sexual aggression toward women.
"I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?" Trump said, referring to a young girl riding an escalator, in an out-take from a 1992 Entertainment Tonight segment filmed at Trump Tower.
At the time Trump would have been 46. The legal age of consent in the US is 18. US reports are claiming the girl was around 10 years old at the time.
Trump's comments arrive as fresh allegations have been made against the candidate by two women. In a story in the New York Times Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks claim he touched them indecently and uninvitedly. Leeds recounts an alleged incident with Trump in the 1980s and Crooks an incident in 2005.
At the same time another account has appeared in People Magazine by writer Natasha Stoynoff, who interviewed Trump and his wife Melania at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida in 2005 ahead of their first wedding anniversary. During a break in the interview, when Stoynoff was alone in a room with Trump, he "shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat," she writes.
Trump's comments in the Entertainment Tonight out-take and the women's stories arrive less then a week after an Access Hollywood out-take surfaced in which Trump describes forcing himself on a married woman and grabbing women by their genitals.
An evangelical Christian magazine earlier this week condemned Trump's "vile and crude boasting about sexual conquest – indeed, sexual assault" as other Republicans sought to distance themselves from the candidate.
