Samantha Holvey, who said last year that Donald Trump personally “inspected” herbefore the Miss USA pageant a decade earlier, said it was “heartbreaking” when the business mogul was elected President of the United States despite facing several allegations of sexual harassment.
But now, she says: “The environment’s different. Let’s try again.”
Holvey appeared Monday morning on Megyn Kelly Today with Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks, two other Trump accusers who are hoping a sea change in the national discussion around sexual misconduct will help their stories find a more receptive audience than last year. Leeds said that Trump groped her and kissed her without her consent on an airplane in the 1970s, while Crooks said that Trump kissed her on the mouth in 2005 while she was an employee at Trump Tower. At least 19 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.
