Miss USA ‘Shocked’ When Trump Kissed Her

A former Miss USA contestant has revealed details of what she said were unwanted sexual advances from Donald Trump. In a new NBC News interview, Temple Taggart McDowell said that on at least two occasions Trump kissed her on the lips without her permission; she was 21 at the time. McDowell first made the allegations public in a New York Times article in May. She came forward with further details after at least four new allegations about Trump were publicized Wednesday, in addition to new claims about him entering Miss Teen USA dressing rooms while the young girls were undressed. McDowell was representing Utah in the 1997 Miss USA pageant at the time of her alleged encounters with Trump, and she said she was “shocked” by the fact that he felt entitled to kiss her on the lips. “I would never approach or greet anybody like that unless it was somebody that I had been dating,” she said. After one of these alleged encounters, a woman who had accompanied McDowell to Trump Tower reportedly told her not to go into a room alone with the real-estate mogul, who was married to Marla Maples at the time. Trump has denied McDowell’s claim, calling it “ridiculous.”
