Former ‘Apprentice; contestant accuses Trump of inappropriate sexual conduct
LOS ANGELES, CA — A former contestant on “The Apprentice” says Donald Trump made unwanted sexual contact with her at a Beverly Hills hotel in 2007.
Summer Zervos appeared at a news conference Friday with attorney Gloria Allred. Zervos is among several women who have made sexual allegations against the Republican nominee. He has strenuously denied them.
Zervos was a contestant on Trump’s show in 2006. She said she later contacted Trump sbout a job.
Zervos said after their initial meeting, Trump kissed her on the lips and asked for her phone number.
She said weeks later, Trump invited her to meet him at a hotel. Zervos says during that meeting, Trump became sexually aggressive, kissing her open-mouthed and touching her breasts.
Zervos says she rejected Trump’s advances and he began talking as if it were a job interview. She said she was offered a low-paying job at a Trump-owned golf course.
Allred says her client told her parents and others about the incident shortly after it occurred.
Last Friday, a recording of Trump describing women in vulgar terms, and him making comments implying he inappropriately touches women was published by the Washington Post. Since then other women came forward with similar allegations.
