The New York Times interviewed dozens of women who had worked with or for Mr. Trump over the past four decades, in the worlds of real estate, modeling and pageants; women who had dated him or interacted with him socially; and women and men who had closely observed his conduct since his adolescence. In all, more than 50 interviews were conducted over the course of six weeks.
Their accounts — many relayed here in their own words — reveal unwelcome romantic advances, unending commentary on the female form, a shrewd reliance on ambitious women, and unsettling workplace conduct, according to the interviews, as well as court records and written recollections. The interactions occurred in his offices at Trump Tower, at his homes, at construction sites and backstage at beauty pageants. They appeared to be fleeting, unimportant moments to him, but they left lasting impressions on the women who experienced them.
What emerges from the interviews is a complex, at times contradictory portrait of a wealthy, well-known and provocative man and the women around him, one that defies simple categorization. Some women found him gracious and encouraging. He promoted several to the loftiest heights of his company, a daring move for a major real estate developer at the time.
He simultaneously nurtured women’s careers and mocked their physical appearance. “You like your candy,” he told an overweight female executive who oversaw the construction of his headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. He could be lewd one moment and gentlemanly the next.
The article is fairly extensive and offers some rather salacious details.
Many of them not something that you would want associated with the next President of the United States.
So as you can imagine Donald Trump took the high road and treated all of this like water off a duck's back.
The failing @nytimes wrote yet another hit piece on me. All are impressed with how nicely I have treated women, they found nothing. A joke!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 15, 2016
Why doesn't the failing @nytimes write the real story on the Clintons and women? The media is TOTALLY dishonest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 15, 2016
It is going to be SO easy to trip this buffoon up in the general election and get him to say and do crazy ass things in response to criticism.Wow, I have had so many calls from high ranking people laughing at the stupidity of the failing @nytimes piece. Massive front page for that!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 15, 2016
Especially criticisms that come from a woman.
