A reporter was removed from a campaign meeting for asking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump about recently reported allegations of groping from several women, The Hill reported.

Before a West Palm Beach, Fla., rally Thursday, one Trump promoted as a "major speech," the candidate met with small business leaders, repeating his plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and lower taxes for Americans in every bracket.

During this meeting, Associated Press reporter John Lemire began to ask, "Mr. Trump, can you deny, have you ever touched or kissed," before he was cut off and escorted from the room, while other attendees booed him.

Trump reportedly called Lemire a "sleazebag" as he left. The meeting was being live-streamed online, but then cut out and aired former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's speech ahead of the Florida rally.

The billionaire denied sexually assaulting women during the second presidential debate after being asked by moderator Anderson Cooper. Since then, The New York Times and other outlets have reported about multiple women who accuse the GOP nominee of kissing and groping them without their consent and against their will.

Jessica Leeds, 74, told the Times she sat next to Trump on a flight once over 30 years ago.

"He was like an octopus," she told the paper. "His hands were everywhere."

"It was an assault," she said.

Trump has called these reports a "fabrication," and has threatened lawsuits against the publications.
