Trump accusations mount
(NBC News) Donald Trump flatly denied Thursday new charges that he groped, fondled and kissed women without their permission.
Trump charged the new sexual allegations are a media campaign of lies.
"These vicious claims about me on inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false," he told supporters in Florida.
The New York Times broke the accusations, with Jessica Leeds charging that decades Trump put his hand up her skirt while the two were seated next to each other on a plane.
Trump tweeted "total fabrication" in response.
Meanwhile, a People Magazine reporter is charging Trump grabbed and kissed her in 2005, and a former Miss Utah has leveled her own accusations, saying Trump kissed her on the lips as soon as they were introduced.
"The first thing he did was smile, give me a warm embrace, and another kiss, and I remember thinking, what does he think this is?" Taggart says.
Trump, who was married to Marla Maples at the time of the alleged encounters, strongly disputed the claim Wednesday night, telling NBC News that he couldn’t remember her.
