Donald Trump reportedly told two 14-year-old girls in 1992 that he would be dating one of them “in a couple of years.”
A news brief published in the Chicago Tribune at the time said the girls were part of a youth choir singing outside the Plaza Hotel in New York City when Trump approached them and asked their ages.
“Wow,” Trump replied after being told they were 14, according to the account, which resurfaced this week. “Just think ― in a couple of years I’ll be dating you.”
The crack was similar to one the GOP presidential nominee made about a 10-year-old in a recently resurfaced tape, also from 1992. In that clip, recorded for an “Entertainment Tonight” Christmas special, the then-46-year-old Trump greeted the girl on an escalator at Trump Tower. Turning to the camera, he said: “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”
The reports resurfaced after Trump was caught on audio saying he engaged in sexual assault, kissing women and grabbing their genitals without their consent. While Trump has repeatedly dismissed the comments as “locker-room talk,” several women have since come forward to accuse the real estate mogul of groping.
Trump denied the accusations and threatened to sue The New York Times as well as the women who made the claims.
