Multiple women came forward from across the U.S. Wednesday saying Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had groped them, according to reports.
Three women said they came forward after watching Trump deny he had ever sexually assaulted women during Sunday’s presidential debate.
Jessica Leeds, 74, told the New York Times she sat next to Trump on a flight to New York over 30 years ago.
About 45 minutes after the plane took off, she said Trump lifted up the armrest and began touching her.
Leeds told the paper Trump grabbed her chest and attempted to put his hand up her skirt.
“He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”
She said she escaped to the back of the plane. “It was an assault,” she said.

Ohio native Rachel Crooks told the New York Times she worked as a receptionist for a real estate company with offices in Trump Tower in New York in 2005.
Crooks, 22 at the time, said the company she worked for was in business with Trump when she was introduced to the real estate mogul.
She said they shook hands when she was introduced but Trump wouldn’t release his grip. Instead, she said he began to kiss her cheeks and then he “kissed me directly on the mouth.”
“It was so inappropriate,” Crooks said. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”

Jason Miller, Trump’s senior communications advisor, issued a statement Wednesday evening which said, “the entire article is fiction and (for the) New York Times to launch a completely false coordinated character assassination against Mr Trump on a topic like this is dangerous.”

A similar story also emerged from Florida Wednesday.
Mindy McGillivray told the Palm Beach Post when she saw Trump’s denial Sunday she yelled at the TV screen: “‘You liar!’’’
McGillivray told the paper she was groped by the presidential candidate 14 years ago at Mar-A-Logo, a landmark estate in Pam Beach owned by the Trump Organization.
The 36-year-old woman said she occasionally worked for a company which was the official photographer at Mar-A-Logo at the time.
Her friend, Ken Davidoff, and his father Bob were the photographers and brought her on to help.
Davidoff said on Jan. 24, 2003 the company was at Mar-A-Logo to document a concert by Ray Charles.
After the show, Davidoff took McGillivray backstage in hopes of meeting the legendary performer but she said Charles had too many bodyguards so they couldn’t snap a photo.

Davidoff and McGillivray were sandwiched between Regis Philbin and his wife, Joy, and Trump and his then-fiancee Melania.
“Ray already performed. He’s ready to leave. He’s saying his goodbyes to everyone,’’ McGillivray recalled.
“All of a sudden I felt a grab, a little nudge. I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly. I quickly turned back, facing Ray Charles, and I’m stunned.’’
A reporter for People Magazine wrote a detailed first-person account of being attacked by Trump while interviewing the businessman and his wife, Melania.
Trump’s press secretary Hope Hicks denied the allegations when reached by the Post.
“There is no truth to this whatsoever,” Hicks said. “This allegation lacks any merit or veracity.”
Last Friday, a 2005 tape surfaced in which Donald Trump bragged to Billy Bush he had groped women in the past.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”
“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump said. “You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” Bush replied.
“Grab them by the p–y,” Trump added.
Trump dismissed the conversation as “locker room” talk before being pressed on the issue by CNN’s Anderson Cooper during Sunday’s presidential debate.
When asked by Cooper during Sunday’s debate if he’d sexually assaulted women, Trump said he had not.
