A makeup artist who worked with Donald Trump in the early 1990s on staging a beauty pageant in Atlantic City alleges he repeatedly groped her — and scrutinized her "like I was a piece of cattle," Inside Edition reported.
In the second part of an interview airing Tuesday, Jill Harth, 54, said she didn't go to the police with her allegations because "I wanted to make this deal happen."
Harth alleges Trump first grabbed her at a dinner at the Plaza Hotel in 1992 — while her ex-husband, George Houraney, was taking a picture of them — "That shows how brazen he was," she said — and then in 1993 at Trump's Mar-A-Largo estate, where he allegedly came onto her at a business meeting, Inside Edition reports.
"He wanted to have the business meeting in the bed," she said. "He's a big guy. He was forceful and he pulled me into the room. I was pushing him off and I was like, 'Would you stop it? I didn't come here for this.' I was angry."
Harth filed her sex assault lawsuit in 1997, but later withdrew it, she claimed, as a condition for settling a breach-of-contract lawsuit suit she and Houraney filed against Trump around the same time.
Yet she briefly dated Trump in 1998, she told Inside Edition.
"Here I have Donald Trump calling me, saying 'I love you,' I want you to come up and see me,” she told Inside Edition. "I'm thinking to myself, if he's still pursuing this after all this, the lawsuit and everything, maybe somehow this can turn into a real relationship."
Instead, she alleged, "I was getting scrutinized like I was a piece of cattle. He wanted me to get a boob job."
Harth admits she tried to offer her support and makeup services after Trump declared his presidential candidacy, Inside Edition reported.
"I was trying to get a job with him,” she told Inside Edition. "Maybe it was not well thought out."
In a statement to "Inside Edition," Trump's spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said the candidate, "denies each and every statement made by Ms. Harth as these 24-year-old allegations lack any merit or veracity."
Harth's account comes as Trump continues to deal with the fallout from the emergence of a 2005 hot-mic video in which he uses sexually aggressive language to talk about women.
