A shockingly high amount of women have come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual harassment and assault in recent weeks, and now another woman has spoken out against Trump’s alleged misconduct. Barbara Corcoran, an American businesswoman perhaps best known as one of the “Shark” investors on ABC’s Shark Tank, recently sat down with CNN’s Erin Burnett to discuss the uncomfortable experience that occurred when she was left alone with Trump at a business meeting in the early 1990s. “I was pregnant with my first child at the time, and so was his second wife,” she said. “He compared my breast size to his wife by putting his hands in the air. I was in a business meeting! I was shocked … I did think afterwards, how would I have felt if I had been a young woman, not a successful businesswoman, and been in a situation like that? I would have felt very compromised.” When prompted by Burnett if she believes the women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct, Corcoran responded that she “very much” does. “I just think it’s preposterous that he’s claiming he’s done nothing like that,” she said. “He’s been that way, always.” Trump has denied the women’s claims, and says he will sue them all when the election is over.
