President Donald Trump on Tuesday lashed out at one of the 19 women who allegedly accused him of sexual assault, calling her a liar after she recently spoke about him to the media. In a series of tweets, the president slammed Rachel Crooks, 35, who accused him of forcibly kissing her at the Trump Tower in 2006.

“A woman I don’t know and, to the best of my knowledge, never met, is on the FRONT PAGE of the Fake News Washington Post saying I kissed her (for two minutes yet) in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago. Never happened! Who would do this in a public space with live security cameras running,” Trump tweeted.

“Another False Accusation. Why doesn’t @washingtonpost report the story of the women taking money to make up stories about me? One had her home mortgage paid off. Only @FoxNews so reported...doesn’t fit the Mainstream Media narrative,” he wrote in another tweet.

A Washington Post report detailing Crooks’ allegations, which were published Feb. 19, angered the president who lashed out at her on Twitter.

The report detailed Crooks’ version of the incident that took place in the Trump Tower years ago, and mentioned how she met the president in the lobby of the building where she worked as a secretary for another company.

“The real version. It all happened at Trump Tower. I had just moved to New York, and I was working as a secretary for another company in the building. That’s where he forced himself on me,” Crooks was quoted in the report.

“He was waiting for the elevator outside our office when I got up the nerve to introduce myself,” Crooks said recalling the time. “He took hold of my hand and held me in a place like this. He started kissing me on one cheek, then the other cheek. He was talking to me in between kisses, asking where I was from, or if I wanted to be a model. He wouldn’t let go of my hand, and then he went right in and started kissing me on the lips. It felt like a long kiss. The whole thing probably lasted two minutes, maybe less,” she further said, according to the report.

Trump has been hit by a series of allegations in the past; however, the president doesn’t seem to be much affected by them and has repeatedly denied the accusations.

The White House also released a statement in December last year, terming the sexual assault allegations against Trump as false.

“These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory. The timing and absurdity of these false claims speak volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them,” the statement read.
