Crooks, one of 19 women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct, has repeatedly spoken out about her experience, but says she feels forgotten because of how little of an impact her story has had.

The US leader has denied the allegations.

Rachel Crooks, who has previously called for a Congressional investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Mr Trump, retold her story on the front page of the Washington Post.

And yet Trump appeared to generically verify her story in the infamous Access Hollywood tapes when he told Billy Bush: "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]".

Crooks went public with her allegation in 2016, after a tape surfaced of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women and "grabbing them by the p--y".

Ms Crooks was working as a receptionist for a company on the 24th floor of New York's Trump Tower in 2006, aged 22, and she would see the businessman regularly as he took the lift up to his residence. "Trump tweeted, ".cameras running". The incident lasted about two minutes, according to Crooks.

"You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them", Trump said to Billy Bush in the 2005 tape.

Through her campaign Twitter account, Crooks urged Trump to release any video he has of the interaction.

"It felt like a long kiss", Cook said.

Crooks, now 35, is running for state office in OH as a Democrat.

Rachel Crooks is running for state representative in Ohio.

Trump's comments come amid a new focus on two accusations - one from former Playboy model Karen McDougal and another with porn actress Stormy Daniels - of Trump carrying on an extramarital affair while married to now first lady Melania Trump and shortly after the birth of his youngest son. In fact, The Hill reported that attorney Lisa Bloom, who represented a few of the women who accused Mr. Trump, set up a GoFundMe account for one accuser, Jill Harth, and also received a donation that paid off Harth's mortgage on her Queens apartment.

The White House responded with a list of three people.

Cohen admitted to making the payment earlier this month, but said it was a "private transaction" from his "own personal funds".

"Everything is off now", Rodriguez said, "and Stormy is going to tell her story".
