Jill Harth Says Trump Told Her To Get Breast Implants, Treated Her 'Like Cattle'
Jill Harth, who accused Donald Trump of groping her multiple times in the 1990s, tells Inside Edition he treated her like she was a piece of meat.
Harth, now 54, met Trump in 1992 when she and her ex-husband were negotiating a business deal to stage a beauty contest at the Trump Marina in Atlantic City. After she and her husband parted ways, she dated Trump in 1998 -- but it didn't last long.
"I was getting scrutinized like a piece of cattle," she told Inside Edition in an exclusive interview. "He wanted me to get a boob job."
She spoke to IE after Trump denied sexually assaulting anyone despite a newly surfaced recording in which he said he would "grab" women and "just start kissing them... I don’t even wait."
Harth, now a New York-based makeup artist, said Trump first groped her in December 1992 after inviting her to a party at New York's Plaza Hotel.
She says a photo, taken by her then-boyfriend George Houraney, captured the moment Trump touched her beneath the table.
“That shows how brazen he was to do it under the table while my boyfriend took the pictures,” she told Inside Edition.
She said Trump continued to grope her over the course of three months. On one occasion, he allegedly pushed her into a bedroom at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. She said she thinks the room belonged to his then-11-year-old daughter, Ivanka.
“He wanted to have his business meeting in his bed,” she said. “He’s a big guy… He pulled me into the room. I was pushing him off and said, ‘would you stop it? I did not come here for this.’”
Harth said she didn’t contact the police. “It would be my word against his,” she said. “I thought it would go away.”
But in 1997, after her business with Trump came to an abrupt end, Harth filed a federal lawsuit against him, claiming he had sexually harassed her.
Lisa Bloom, Harth’s attorney, said: “99 percent of sexual harassment victims do not file a lawsuit. They don’t even tell anyone in many cases. So for Jill to do that was a very big move on her part.”
In another lawsuit, Harth and her then-husband, Houraney, claimed Trump owed them money from their beauty pageant business. She says the suit was settled partly on the condition that she dropped the sexual harassment allegation.
The following year, after her marriage fell apart, Harth said Trump began pursuing her.
“Here I have Donald Trump calling me, saying, ‘I love you. Please come and see me,’” she told Inside Edition.
But their relationship was short-lived and after a few months, they parted ways.
It wasn't the end of their contact, though.
The Trump campaign 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."
In response to her claims that Trump had groped her, the campaign said he "denies each and every statement made by Ms Harth as these 24-year-old allegations lack any merit or veracity."
Harth hit back: “To have his staff say I’m making this up, I feel he was trying to leave me again as roadkill, and that’s not going to happen.”
