Trump Accuser Jill Harth Reacts To His Groping Comments: 'How Can People Not Believe Me Now?'
Jill Harth, who says Donald Trump groped her multiple times during the 1990s, is speaking out about his lewd comments caught on a hot mic.
Speaking exclusively to Inside Edition, the New York-based makeup artist said she was floored by the recording, in which he claimed he would "grab" women and "just start kissing them... I don’t even wait."
"This is what I was saying," Harth said. "He's saying from his words what he does. How can people not believe me now? How can they not believe me now?"
Harth, 54, said she was stunned when the video surfaced on Friday, but that shock turned to outrage during Sunday night's presidential debate when Trump insisted he had never groped anyone.
"He lied," she said. "He lied and it made me angry. It made me angry that he did that."
"He groped me," she continued. "He absolutely groped me. He just slipped his hand there, touching my private parts."
Harth met Trump in 1992 when she and her ex-husband were negotiating a business deal with Trump to stage a beauty contest at the Trump Marina in Atlantic City.
In December of that year, the billionaire invited Harth, then 30, to a party at New York's Plaza Hotel. She claims that's where the first groping incident unfolded.
"Donald sat me right next to him," she said. "That was the time when he started to go for it and have his hand on my leg, moving forward... touching my private parts."
She said she got up, told him she needed the bathroom and fled.
Her ex-husband, George Houraney, said Harth told him about the alleged incident. "He was not playing no games," he told IE.
The second alleged incident came in January 1993 at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. She told Inside Edition that Trump offered her a private tour of the Palm Beach property before pulling her into a bedroom. She believes the room was his daughter Ivanka's, who was just 11 at the time.
"He is pushing me up against the wall, forcing a kiss on me," she said. "Again with his hands all over my body and again with his hands up my dress."
Then in March 1993, Harth said Trump tried a third time.
"It turned into a wrestling match," she said. "Again he had his hands up my dress."
Harth's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, told Inside Edition: "It's time for him to face the music and apologize to Jill Harth."
In a statement to Inside Edition, Trump's spokesperson, Hope Hicks, said he "denies each and every statement made by Ms Harth as these 24-year-old allegations lack any merit or veracity."
The Trump campaign also sent Inside Edition emails Harth sent to Trump after he announced his run for the presidency.
"Hi Donald," one email read. "You are doing a tremendous job shaking things up ... I am definitely on TEAM TRUMP."
Another email read: "I also want to put it out there that I would be willing to say at a rally or somewhere how DJT helped me with my self-confidence and all positive things about how he is with women to counter any negativity that may come out at some point in the campaign."
When Inside Edition asked Harth about the emails, she said: "I'm a freelance makeup artist and I'm trying to get work. I'm trying to be nice."
