Donald Trump Accused of Sexual Assault by Former Model Amy Dorris | The World | DW

Former model Amy Morris has accused the president of the United States, Donald Trump, of sexually assaulting her during the 1997 US Open tennis tournament, when he groped her and stuck “his tongue down her throat,” she explains in an interview published this Thursday. (17.09.2020) by the newspaper The Guardian.

The attack, which allegedly occurred on September 5, 1997, when she was 24 years old, made her feel “sick” and “raped”, the actress, who currently resides in Florida (United States), tells the newspaper.

According to Dorris, Trump approached her near the toilets of her VIP tribune during the 1997 US Open tennis in New York, holding her so tightly that she could not escape.

“He put his tongue down my throat, I pushed him,” says the victim, who adds that later her attacker began to touch “her ass, breasts, back, everything.” She tried to slow down the advance of his tongue by biting hers, and thinks she could “hurt” him.

Trump lawyers deny accusations

The Guardian points out that, through his lawyers, the Republican leader, who is running for re-election in his country in November, has categorically denied having harassed, abused or behaved inappropriately with Dorris.

For her part, the former model has provided “evidence” of her version of events, including an entry to the US Open tennis tournament and six photos in which she appears in New York with the real estate mogul, who was 51 years old at the time and He was married to his second wife, Marla Maples, the newspaper explains.

The Guardian adds that the testimony of Dorris, 48, has also been corroborated by several people to whom she told the event.

The former model, a mother of two twin daughters, says she considered going public with the assault in 2016, when other women reported harassment by Trump, but did not do so because she thought it would harm her family.

Dorris: “I want you to see that I did not shut up”

Now, on the other hand, she feels that she wants to be “a reference” for her girls, who, at almost 13 years old, must know that “no one should be allowed to do anything to you that you don’t want.

“I want them to see that I did not shut up, that I confronted someone who did something that was unacceptable,” says Dorris, who met Donald Trump through her boyfriend at the time, Jason Binn, founder of several magazines and luxury brands.

Multiple accusations

The US president has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by more than a dozen women, including an editorial writer, E. Jean Carroll, who accuses him of raping her in the mid-1990s.

Trump denies all those allegations. In the case of E. Jean Carroll, he denied her complaint claiming that she was not “his type of woman.”

Just before the 2016 election, a 2005 video of the former real estate mogul was posted in which he bragged about being able to catch women for their genitals thanks to his notoriety.
