However, the claims by the three women have been waved aside by the White House which said the women were making "false claims". It said "the timing and absurdity of these false claims speak volumes".

More recently, Trump has actively campaigned for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore despite allegations Moore preyed on young teen girls while an adult decades earlier. Politico reports that, in private, the president has complained that the wave of women speaking out has become a problem, and has questioned the veracity of the claims against Moore, who denies all criminal wrongdoing.

The press secretary was unable to provide any evidence to discredit the allegations, instead relying on Trump's denials. And Samantha Holvey, who was crowned Miss North Carolina in 2006, once again spoke of a time when Trump had entered the backstage area of the pageant he ran and unexpectedly asked to personally inspect the young contestants, who were in various states of undress.

Gillibrand told CNN on Monday that the allegations of sexual misconduct are credible and numerous and that Trump should resign.

Three women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault will appear on Megyn Kelly's NBC show at 9 a.m. on Monday before they have a national press conference at 10:30.

The 16 women claim to share similar stories of sexual misconduct by the President are calling for Congress to launch an investigation into Mr Trump.

U.S. decision on Jerusalem is "flagrant attack on political solution": AL
Two Palestinians were killed in the latest Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Saturday, that injured another 25 Palestinians. On Sunday, violence erupted for a fourth day in the occupied Palestinian territories in response to Trump's announcement.


"He held onto my hand and he kept kissing me", Crooks said.

"Those people that hate Trump will hate him more, those people that love Trump will think that this is business as usual, that this media is out to get him, that the Democrats are out to get him and it won't change their opinion", Uhlmann said.

"I know that he was elected", she said. "I've heard these women's testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking".

Crooks called the statement "laughable" and challenged Trump to release a security tape of her encounter with him in Trump Tower in Manhattan in 2005, during which she claims that Trump kissed her on the lips without her consent.

Sixteen women overall reportedly have come forward with accusations of misconduct by Trump .

That message ran counter to at least one other member of Trump's administration - Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations - who said on Sunday that Trump's accusers deserve to be heard. They talked to me privately about the amount of retribution that had been unleashed against them and their families just for saying, you know, me too, right? My guess is more Democratic senators sign onto that movement in the coming days - seeing no downside to being identified as vehemently anti-Trump by the party base.
