Adding to the list of women who have accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual assault, Mexican actress Salma Hayek revealed that Trump had harassed her too.
While talking to the Los Angeles Calif. Radio show on October 21, Hayek said that Donald Trump had asked the actress out on a date years ago, knowing very well that she was in a relationship with her boyfriend at the time.
Hayek recounted that Trump found out her home number by pretending to be a friend of her boyfriend and asked her to go out with him. The actress declined Trump's invitation and told him that she would not go out with him even if she did not have a boyfriend. Hayek said that later, she read a National Enquirer article, which published that the billionaire would not go out on a date with her because she was too short.
The Republican nominee then again called Hayek suggesting that she should go out with him if she did not want people to believe that article.
"The man thought that I was going to try to go out with him so that nobody thought that he wouldn't go out with me because of that," Hayek said. The Mexican actress has been campaigning for the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Hayek recounted the incident during her show to rally the Latino vote for Clinton. She was asked about her thoughts on the women who have come forward and publicly condemned Trump's sexual misconduct towards women. To this, the actress responded with, "I think that they do well, and I don't doubt it for a second."
The Republican presidential nominee is infamous for his degenerative stance towards women. After the release of a recording where Trump boasted of sexually assaulting women, many women have come forward to report the billionaire's sexual misconduct towards them.
