Black ex-campaign staffer Alva Johnson says Donald Trump tried to kiss her during the 2016 presidential campaign without her consent, according to a new lawsuit. Johnson said, “I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it [kiss] or wanting it.”
“A staffer on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign says he kissed her without her consent at a small gathering of supporters before a Florida rally, an interaction that she alleges in a new lawsuit still causes her anguish,” the Washington Post reports.
“In interviews with The Washington Post, and in the lawsuit, Alva Johnson said Trump grabbed her hand and leaned in to kiss her on the lips as he exited an RV outside the rally in Tampa on Aug. 24, 2016. Johnson said she turned her head and the unwanted kiss landed on the side of her mouth, which she called ‘super-creepy and inappropriate.’”
Trump, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women, was heard on an Access Hollywood tape bragging about sexually assaulting women.
