“Last night we hear, that after twelve years . . . a new claim that I made inappropriate advances during the interview to this writer,” Trump said. “Why wasn’t it a part of the story? It would have been one of the biggest stories of the year . . . Look at her, look at her words, you tell me what you think — I don’t think so.”
