tv Trump BBC News July 11, 2018 3:30am-4:00am BST
of at least one team playing in the world cup final. it's france — who beat belgium in the first semi—final in st petersburg. samuel umtiti getting the only goal of the game. now on bbc news, panorama. more than 20 women have accused the president of the united states of being a sex pest. i see donald standing there. i'm thinking, this son of a bitch just grabbed me. it was an assault. it was a very physical attack. now a court is being asked to decide whether president trump is a sexual predator. the truth is always the right option. and we will win out in the end. tonight we reveal details of his parties with teenage models. this particular party, there were four men and probably 50 models. and i was one of the models.
as donald trump prepares to visit britain, we hearfrom the women who say he is unfit to be president. he said, how old are you? i said 17. he goes great, not too old, not to young that's just great! this is where donald trump's road to the presidency began. the us version of the apprentice gave him a new level of fame. this is where donald trump's road to the presidency began. the us version of the apprentice gave him a new level of fame. you're fired. but the programme that boosted the trump brand might now finish him. on screen, he was the
straight—talking billionaire. off screen, there was another side. donald was known throughout the filming of the show to comment on women's looks. comment on who he would like to sleep with. what did you hear? i heard him ask, do you think she is hot. would you like to sleep with her. that was the personality that we just came to know as donald's penalty. that is who he is. i'm being truthful, always will be truthful. how stupid is that? it was on the show that donald trump met summer zervos. you're fired. summer zervos says two years after she was fired,
donald trump met her at this hotel. she claimed she had been talking to him about her career. it was these bungalows at the back of the beverley hills hotel where summer zervos said the incident took place. these are like private units at the back of a swanky hotel. summer zervos said donald trump was in one of these and it was mere she says that he forced himself upon her. i stood up. and he came to me and started kissing me open—mouthed as he was pulling me towards him. i walked away and sat down. he then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast. mr trump said summer zervos was lying and he had never met her at the hotel.
but now she is fighting back, suing the president for defamation. i wanted to give mr trump the opportunity to retract his false statements about me. since mr trump has not issued a retraction, he has left me with no alternative other than to sue him to vindicate my reputation. it is significant because more than 20 women have accused president trump of sexually inappropriate behaviour. now, summer zervos could use them as part of her case. a court would decide who is telling the truth and whether the president of the united states is a sexual predator. donald trump keeps trying to get the court here in new york to throw the case out. so far, he has failed.
which means president trump faces being questioned under oath about the way he treats women. i think the summer zervos case is significant. and that is why he is fighting it and that is why there have been efforts to delay it. it is like a slow moving train and i don't think he likes where it's going. donald trump's own words may also be used against him in court. i did try and bleep. she was married. like this infamous tape. after the tape came out, donald trump apologised for his language. i have never said i'm a perfect person. i have said and done things i rethe
words released on this video are one of them. after the tape came out, donald trump apologised for his language. i have never said i'm a perfect person. i have said and done things i rethe words released on this video are one of them. anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who i am. panorama has spoken to women who say that's exactly how he is. it was mr trump's denials that made them come forward. there is a gentleman at the window, introduced himself as donald trump. jessica leeds says she was assaulted on a plane in the late 70s. suddenly this man started groping me. he was all over me and he was
kissing me and he was... not a word was said from him. we're just having this tussle. in the seat. and it's like his... like his hands are every where like an octopus. but it is when he started putting his hand up my skirt... that i... got the... strength... the adrenaline to... manage to wiggle out. sounds like an assault. it was. it was an assault. absolutely. i mean, at one point i did feel pinned to my seat. it was a very physical attack. donald trump accused jessica leeds of lying. oh, i was with donald trump in 1980. i was sitting with him on a plane. and he went after me on the plane. yeah, i'm going to go after...
believe me, she would not be my first choice that i can tell you! man! donald trump says you're a liar. what did you think of that? well... you know he... of course he is going to say that. he lives in a fantasy of his manly prowess. jessica leeds isn't the only woman with a story about the president. his hand touched the right inside... of my breast. donald trump would look up under their skirt and you know comment on whether they had underwear or didn't have underwear and what the view looked like. the person on my right
who unbeknownst to me at that time was donald trump, put their hands up my skirt. he did touch my regina through my underwear. he pushed me up against the wall and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress. i had to say, what are you doing, stop it. it was a shocking thing to have him do this. some women have evidence to back up their stories. this is your e—mail account from when it happened? yes. rachel crooks said she was kissed by donald trump in 2006 and e—mailed her family. i said it was weird, it caught me off guard. i must appear to be some dumb girl he can take advantage of. her office was in trump tower, where donald trump lived and worked. she saw him outside the lift and introduced herself. we shook hands and he pulled me in sort of for that normal double cheek kiss and he held on to my hand though and as he made small talk and asked me questions,
continued pulling me in for kisses again and again on my cheeks. it happened once. and you're like, what is he doing? it happened so quickly, it was just very unusual. and at one point he drew me in and kissed me on the lips. i was pretty shocked. i remember running back into the office, then sort of hiding in one of the offices that i knew was unoccupied and just called my sister and was shaking. like, i don't know what happened. but something weird. melinda mcgillivray also told people about her experience with donald
trump. she says she was groped while working for a photographer at mr trump's florida mansion in 2003. i had to be at least two feet away from donald trump when i felt this... it was a grab. ifelta grab. from my bottom right cheek. and it was almost like someone was trying to find... you know, feel the contour of my body. almost like a feeling for something. so i turned around and i see donald there. i'm thinking, this son of pitch just grabbed me. this is disturbing. it was like someone was trying to feel whether a fruit was ripe at the store. and the fact that somebody would do that to you, how did you that make you feel?
violated. entirely violated. to see somebody who resembled my father grab me was deplorable. most of the women chose to come forward during the presidential campaign. donald trump says it is politically motivated and his accusers are liars. these claims are all fabricated. i have no idea who these women are. i have no idea. every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. totalfabrication. the events never happened. never. he called us liars, but i will never forget. i can remember it as clear as day. he described yous a liar. we know he lies, so i'm not surprised. some of the allegations
are of the most serious nature. when trump's first wife filed for divorce, she accused donald trump of rape. in court papers, ivana trump claimed he attacked her during an arguments. after a divorce settlement, she clarified her view and said she felt violated by the incident, but it didn't amount to rape in a criminal or literal sense. donald trump says the claims are false and doesn't like people talking about it. this is his lawyer, michael cohen, and this is a recording of him threatening a journalist. donald trump is also used his cash to try to bury stories.
donald trump has also used his cash to try to bury stories. the porn star stormy daniels says she had an affair with mr trump. he says it is not true but he paid her $130,000 to stay quiet. we have spoken to another adult movie actress, who says she was there when the president first met stormy. his bodyguard had said, can i get your number? that was the first time stormy ever met him as well. that is also the same evening that we all ended up in his room together for the first time.
jessica drake says donald trump came on to her as well that night. when we first entered the room he grabbed me in more of a forceful way and he kissed me on the lips. it was almost like a pounce. it didn't feel good to me. it didn't feel consensual to me. jessica drake says mr trump wouldn't take no for an answer. he even offered to pay her. he offered me money to go to his hotel room. he went up to $10,000. donald trump denies the claims. but over the years he has played a up his image as an outrageous womaniser. lady di was a woman of great beauty.
would you have slept with her? without hesitation. the national enquirer did a story on me and said in the history of the world nobody has gotten more beautiful women than i have, which is a great compliment. she's probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed. how come the deeply troubled women are always the best in bed? donald trump has always surrounded himself with young women. in the 805, his friend, ron rice, got him involved in beauty contests. he loves pretty girls, so we invited him to come along. he came to are pageants year after year and he was either a judge or he was a celebrity vip guest.
he would watch the girls as they paraded by and did their turns, and then go off to see them. these are ron's private folders. that's me! there are quite a lot of you with him. these women are much younger than him. how did he behave at these events? what was he like? he was a perfect gentleman. he loved the girls, he loved being around them. he loved the beauty but he was a perfect gentleman the whole time. but some pageant organisers were concerned about his behaviour. this is george houraney, who arranged a beauty contest at one of mr trump's casinos. he says donald trump posted one of the contestants when they stayed —— pestered.
at his florida mansion. one of the girls told us that donald had approached her, that he had tried to get her in bed and she said no, i don't do anything on the first date with anybody. he didn't pressure her. he backed off but he did try. the next morning she woke up and he was sitting next to her in the bed. saying, it's the second date, how about now? so, donald trump let himself into this woman's bedroom and climbed into the bed? he had keys to all the rooms. tonight we're about to crown one of these beautiful young teenagers... in 1996, donald trump decided to buy one of his own pageants. welcome one of my co—host, the exquisite, adorable, beautiful ivanka trump. donald trump talked on the radio about what he could get away with.
it seems that is exactly how he used his position. hejust walks in. he doesn't care if we are nude or changing, in a vulnerable position. you are changing out of your address and you are putting your bikini on. there are people who are topless. i saw him walk into the dressing room and i was stunned. i was so glad that i was out
in hairand make—up, so he wouldn't have walked in on the undressing. why do you think he was in there? because he owns the pageant. when he owns things, i feel like he feels he can do whatever he once. whatever he wants. i think he wanted to see women in various stages of undress or in very skimpy bathing suits up close. why did he go in there? to look at the women. like the audio recording says, just to look at the women. it is claimed this even happened at his team pageant, where contestants were as young as 15 years old. i remember being in the back and hearing the chaperone say, ladies, listen, we have got somebody who is going to come in and see you, make sure you are covered up. all of the girls were changing, getting their bras and underwear on, getting ready for their opening number outfits. when donald trump walked in,
there were women in there who were not fully closed? correct. women were not fully closed when he came in. some of them were as young as 15. but we have looked further into the president's past, where there are more allegations about the way he behaved towards women. much of it centres on his home town in the late 19805 and 1990s. for rich, powerful men like donald trump, new york was a playground, lavish parties, excess and very young models. models were often recruited when they were very young. these pictures have not
been published before. they were taken at a modelling event in the early 905. we met someone who was there. he doesn't want to be identified. he says donald trump hosted and attended parties after modelling events. the models were young. the men were much older. there was a lot of cocaine, a lot of alcohol. they were all older men. these were guys who could easily be their fathers two times over. you had men in their 505, 605 on up. it was like a feeding frenzy. the girls were there as consumables. worthy men having six with them? yes. worthy men having sex with them? yes.
that was the whole point of it. they were there to get laid. barbara pilling was a young model in new york. she first saw donald trump at a party in the late 805. she has never spoken publicly about it before. he asked me how old i was. isaid, 17, and he said, great, you are not too old and not too young. the waitress offered him a drink and he didn't take the drink. he slapped her bottom. she was a blonde. and he was very loud. he was like, don't worry, that's not your tip. heather braden also saw donald trump at model parties in the 905. one was in florida. at 23, she was one of the oldest woman there. at 23, she was one of
the oldest women there. i remember particularly seeing him at a party in a house in miami. at this particular party there were four men and probably 50 models. four men and 50 models? that is approximately what i remember. i was one of the models. i could well have been being auctioned off. ifelt like a piece of meat in a meat market. what else could i feel like? we have spoken to a number of sources who saw donald trump at the parties. most paint a similar picture. just described to us the way donald trump behaved at these parties? this guy, it was like a predator in action. i was going to the washroom and a girl was coming out. she looked at me and i go, "have you talked to that trump guy? "she said, yeah, as he was walking
by he is would have grabbed my arse." we do know that he was having sex with them. we would hear about it days after. he would brag about it and it would get around that he had scored, maybe one might two girls at a time, which is what he loved to do. there is no evidence that donald trump slept with underage girls. but what is most shocking is the age of some of the models at the parties. there were girls of 14, 15. they were from europe. they were european girls. i didn't run up and ask how old they were but they looked younger than i was and i was 17. you just knew because of what they were wearing and how they held themselves.
these girls are anywhere from 11; to 15 and 16 years old. there were few girls above the age of 19. you saw donald trump with these girls who were that young? absolutely. he was standing around with them, ogling them. it wasjust disgusting. i felt like i was in the presence of a shark getting ready to roll his eyes back in his head and bite me. that is how i felt. ijust said, get the hell out of here. there may be more secrets about the president. panorama has heard about other allegations against donald trump. but the women are too scared to come forward. i do know girls who have had run—ins with him and even agents, people who worked for him. why are they not coming forward?
they are either in the industry were absolutely afraid for their careers, their businesses, the death threats they may get from people who don't like what they hear. too frightened to come forward? yeah, i think so. the white house did not respond to the allegations in this programme. but the claims about donald trump's behaviour towards women go back a0 years. these vicious claims about me, of inappropriate conduct with women, are totally and absolutely false. there are witnesses who dispute some of the allegations. but now a court is being asked to decide who is telling the truth. after he called me a liar, i was threatened, bullied and saw my business targeted. i will continue to speak
out and tell the truth. the truth is always the right option. and will win out in the end. donald trump's accusers say his behaviour makes him unfit to be the president of the united states. you're doing the metoo and you say, this has to stop, it is not acceptable. so the biggest harvey weinstein is the president of the united states. how is it any different? we should be holding him to the same standard. if society does not believe that is ok, he needs to be held accountable as well. the man who arrives in britain this week could still be judged the sex pest president. welcome to bbc news,
