At a news conference in Los Angeles on Friday, Summer Zervos alleged that the incident took place after she was eliminated from The Apprentice show and approached Trump for work at one of his golf courses.
At least four other women, including women's rights lawyer Gloria Allred - who is representing Miss Zervos - have also claimed Mr Trump made unwanted sexual advances towards them.
Two more women have come forward to accuse GOP nominee Donald Trump of sexually assaulting them.
Hope Hicks, a female spokesman for Mr Trump, denied Ms Anderson's allegations. She describes a meeting with him at his NY office in 2007 when she was visiting from California, during which she says he told her he would "love to have" her work for him, and wanted to meet again when he visited Los Angeles in the near future. When they parted, he kissed her on the lips and asked for her phone number, she said.
"Believe me, she would not be my first choice", the Republican presidential nominee said of Jessica Leeds, who accused him of touching her inappropriately some three decades ago, during a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. She says upon her arrival, Trump led her to the bedroom and began "aggressively" kissing her.
Also on Friday, The Washington Post published an interview with a woman who said Trump put his hand up her skirt in a crowded NY nightclub in the early 1990s in an unwanted advance.
After dinner he abruptly said that he was exhausted and needed to retire, telling her to meet him the next morning at his golf course in Palos Verdes. Then, as she started to leave, she said the assault occurred. Then, she said, she became uncomfortable when, as she was leaving, he kissed her on the mouth. "It was like just to prove that he could do it, and nothing would happen", she alleged in the Washington Post. On Thursday, Trump made similar comments, urging his followers to "look at her" and saying, "I don't think so". She explained that she competed on Season 5 of The Apprentice and continued to see Trump as a mentor and possible employer even after she was "fired" from the show.
"Many accusers ask why these women are coming forward now", Allred said, according to Business Insider. She said she was struck by how Trump's comments from the 2005 video mirrored her experience. She said Trump could not meet her for lunch, but instead invited her to his office.
We should note that none of the women who say Trump touched and groped them ever reported the incidents to law enforcement. She reached out to him in 2007 to have lunch when she was visiting NY.
Bomb suspect accused of trying to kill cops to be arraigned
The man charged with attempted murder for allegedly planting bombs in NY and New Jersey last month will be arraigned Thursday. Rahami, who born in Afghanistan, first came to the United States in 1995 and became a naturalized citizen in 2011.
Trump, at a campaign rally speech today, said all of the accusations against him are false and part of a campaign by the media and Hillary Clinton's campaign to thwart his candidacy. She said she rejected his advances and was not offered employment.
"Oh, I was with Donald Trump in 1980", Trump said, mimicking Leeds' accusation.
At the press conference Friday, Allred said, "Many more women have contacted me" with allegations against Trump. In the coming days I plan on addressing our nation in a more personal way to present my vision for how together we fight to bring back American jobs and defend our country against radical Islamic terrorism.
In a statement to USA TODAY, Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks denied the incident with Anderson occurred and called it a "political attack created to tear down Mr. Trump". Trent said Anderson said that she was sitting next to Trump at the China Club and Trump slid his hand up her thigh and "grabbed her p--".
"He put me in an embrace and I tried to push him away".
Trump even threatened to sue the women making the claims.
"That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how Ive conducted my life".
Zervos, her voice choked with emotion, addressed Trump directly, "You do not have the right to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star".
"He did touch my vagina through my underwear, absolutely", she said in a video interview on the Post's website.
